Pursuing Compensation for Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents
Victims of drunk driving in North Carolina can often pursue two types of compensation:
- Compensation under general personal injury damages: These are the basic compensation awards for lost wages, medical bills, permanent injury, and pain and suffering resulting from the drunk driving accident.
- Compensation in the form of punitive damages: North Carolina law allows plaintiffs to recover punitive damages to punish the negligent party for gross negligence and aggravated conduct — over and above the general liability damages. While punitive damages are capped in most cases, they are not capped in drunk driving cases.
Our legal team is highly skilled at investigating car accident and truck accident claims to prove gross negligence intoxication occurred. We begin our work by contacting district attorneys in charge of prosecuting drunk driving criminal cases. Our detailed work can have a significant impact on a case. If a drunk driver escapes a conviction, punitive damages may not be available. We pursue every angle possible to help accident victims and families with fatal accident claims recover maximum compensation for the damages they have endured.
