You need an advocate as you heal from a drunk driving crash

We've recently discussed some points that are significant in pedestrian accidents. While the causes of pedestrian accidents vary greatly, there is one kind of pedestrian accident that is especially infuriating. These occur when the pedestrian is struck by a drunk driver.

Drunk drivers are a nuisance and safety hazard. These drivers don't think about how they are endangering others when they get behind the wheel. Instead, many think that they are able to drive safely in spite of the effects of the alcohol. This isn't the case. It is imperative that steps are taken to keep drunk drivers off the roads.

If you are hit by a drunk driver, you probably have a long road to recovery in front of you. This can include pain and suffering, medical interventions and changes to your life. None of these effects are things that you should have to deal with, but because someone else made a reckless decision, you are forced to deal with them.

You have the option of holding the drunk driver responsible for the decision to drive. You can opt to seek compensation from that drunk driver. This is done in civil court, so even if the drunk driver is facing criminal charges or has already been convicted of criminal charges, you can still pursue compensation.

We know that you might be torn about what you want to do. On the one hand, you want to take action. On the other hand, you might not feel able to take on a huge responsibility. This is when we can help you. We can work on your behalf to get your case moving. We can be your advocate when you aren't able to do it on your own.
