Everyone knows that driving under the influence is illegal, but unfortunately many irresponsible individuals still drive while drunk. Drunk drivers are responsible for causing devastating injuries and death to innocent parties every year.
If you or a family member has been injured in a vehicle accident by an impaired driver, call James J. Gutbrod, Attorney at Law. Our personal injury attorney has over 35 years of experience working with victims of vehicle accidents of various kinds including those due to impaired driving. It is important to act quickly if you have been involved in a vehicle accident due to drunk driving because there are legal deadlines that may prevent you from making a claim if you wait too long.
If you have been involved in an accident and suspect the driver is impaired, take note of everything you observe, including:
Contact law enforcement and receive medical attention immediately after the vehicle accident. Law enforcement officials will perform tests on the driver to determine if his/her blood alcohol concentration was above the legal limit. You will also receive a detailed report of any injuries sustained from the accident. Personal injury attorney James J. Gutbrod will use this report to bring a claim against those responsible for your injuries.
