According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, one in three people will be involved in an alcohol-related accident during their lifetime. Even more dismaying, the average drunk driver has driven while intoxicated at least 80 times before they are arrested for the first time. Sadly, the CDC reports that over 10,000 people are killed in drunk driving accidents each year. If you’ve been injured, contact the Longmont drunk driving accident attorneys at Fuicelli & Lee, P.C. for a free consultation.
These statistics are certainly startling, and the truth is, being the victim of a drunk driving accident can completely change the course of your life in a mere fraction of a second. You can be left injured, unable to work, wondering who will pay for your medical bills, the damage to your vehicle and your missed paychecks. If a loved one was killed in an accident involving an impaired driver, you not only have to deal with your grief, but also with how to provide for your family now that they are gone. In fact, you probably have many more questions than answers and are uncertain which way to turn.
After your accident you may have been inundated with calls from insurance adjusters or attorneys representing the other driver. These unscrupulous individuals will do their best to convince you to give up your rights and make a quick settlement. It is crucial that you remember these people do not have your best interests and your future at heart. They are simply trying to minimize their payouts—and their liabilities.
If you have been injured in an accident with a drunk driver, it is imperative that you contact an experienced Longmont injury attorney immediately. Do not sign any settlements without first reviewing all of your legal options.
Injuries resulting from a drunk driving accident in Longmont can be quite serious, changing the lives of the victims forever. Permanent, debilitating injuries such as brain trauma or paralysis could require years—or a lifetime—of rehab, interventions and home care. Such injuries can also cause extreme emotional trauma. Victims with this level of injury can suffer serious depression and can even experience suicidal thoughts due to the catastrophic nature of their injuries.
Less critical—but still serious—injuries can include broken or crushed bones, severed limbs, serious burns, internal injuries, and disfigurement. As you watch your medical bills continue to mount you may feel helpless—and hopeless. Having an experienced drunk driving accident attorney by your side during this difficult time can alleviate many of your fears, allowing you to turn your burden over and concentrate on healing.
Following your accident, it is important that you follow specific steps to protect your rights. If your injuries are so severe that you are unable to perform these tasks, try to have a close friend or family member help you out.
