We have all heard the statistics and the warnings telling us that drinking and driving is extremely dangerous not only to the intoxicated driver, but also to others on the road. Yet, despite this knowledge, many North Carolinians still choose to drink and drive. Though some of these individuals are able to make it home safe, a great number of them cause serious accidents, leaving a wreck of destruction, injuries, and death.
Our last blog post discussed just how detrimental alcohol can be to an individual’s driving ability. Those who are hurt in an accident caused by an impaired driver may suffer significantly. They may be left with physical disfigurement or disability, emotional turmoil, and a mound of debt in the form of medical expenses, which is only exacerbated by lost wages. These drunk driving accident victims deserve to be made whole again, and the Law Offices of John M McCabe stands ready to help those seeking civil legal ramifications.
It can be difficult to confront someone who hurt you, especially in a court of law at a time when you are still recovering from your injuries. However, a competent and passionate legal team, like the one at our firm, will stand by your side and ensure that your best interests are fully represented and that your legal rights are adequately protected. We pride ourselves on standing up to drunk drivers and fighting for the amount of compensation victims really need to recoup their losses.
Therefore, if you have been injured by a drunk driver, then you may want to think about consulting with an attorney. He or she cannot guarantee that you will recover compensation from your claim, but an aggressive lawyer will do everything in his or her power, given the circumstances, to reach an outcome that is favorable and fair.
