Helping Memphis Recover For Auto Accident Injuries Caused By Drunk Or Distracted Drivers
Determining the cause of a motor vehicle accident is critical to the success of the case. The two most common causes are drunk driving and distracted driving.
Drunk Driving Accident Injuries: Who Is Responsible?
Drunk driving is illegal. When drivers get behind the wheel while intoxicated, they are not merely being negligent, they are breaking the law. If an accident occurs and causes injury, they can be held accountable.
There may be other parties who could also be responsible, such as the bar, restaurant or establishment that over-served the drunk driver.
Types Of Compensation Available for Drunk Driving Car Accident Injuries
Along with compensation to pay for medical expenses, rehabilitation or lost wages, victims could be entitled to receive punitive damages, those paid by the drunk driver as a form of punishment for the crime.
Distracted Driving Accident Injuries
In the past, distracted driving consisted of drivers taking their eyes of the road to eat, put on makeup or fiddle with the stereo.
Today, the prevalence of mobile devices or smartphones has caused distracted driving accidents to increase tenfold across the country.
Texting behind the wheel, taking selfies or videos of something outside of the vehicle, navigating GPS, checking social media — these have all resulted in many auto accident injuries and fatalities.
