Drinking and Driving Is Illegal and Dangerous

Driving under the influence (DUI) is a serious criminal offense in Washington, for good reason. A person’s ability to drive safely can be impaired by alcohol in several ways, from poor concentration and judgment to blurry vision and a loss of fine motor skills. All of these factors can increase the risk of a serious and sometimes fatal accident.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately 32 people in the United States die every day in drunk driving accidents. This amounts to one person every 45 minutes. In 2019 alone, 11,654 people died in collisions caused by drivers who were under the influence. 

Your Legal Options After a Drunk Driving Accident

Drunk driving can lead to criminal penalties, like fines and prison time. However, a criminal conviction often does little to help a victim pay for medical care, recover from emotional trauma, or compensate for lost wages. In addition to a criminal case, DUI accident victims have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit or insurance claim against the drunk driver.

Washington is a fault car insurance state, meaning that negligent drivers are financially responsible for any accidents that they cause. If a drunk driver injures you on the road, you can pursue a claim against him or her to pay for:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and future earnings
  • Property damage sustained in the crash
  • Chronic pain
  • Permanent disability
  • Emotional distress
  • Mental anguish
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Funeral and burial expenses, in the case of wrongful death

At Colburn Law, our attorney is dedicated to seeking justice for victims of negligent drivers. We can represent your claim against the accident’s driver and hold him or her accountable for these dangerous and irresponsible actions.
