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 30 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.

What should you do if you've been in an accident due to a drunk driver?

If you have been involved in an accident and suspect the driver is impaired, take note of everything you observe, including:

  • The driver smelling of alcohol
  • The driver slurring his/her words
  • Alcohol or drugs visible in the driver’s vehicle
  • Damage to your vehicle
  • Injuries incurred from the accident

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.
