What damages can I recover for?

You can seek damages that fall into the categories of medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Is the drunk driver at fault?

Personal injury claims are based on negligence (carelessness) and driving while under the influence of alcohol is a well-established form of negligence.

How much will my attorney charge?

Pretty much any personal injury lawyer worth their salt will work on contingency for an injured person. This often means that you do not have to pay an attorney a single penny unless they get compensation for you. The attorney’s payment depends on them getting you a settlement. No settlement means no fee. After a settlement amount is accepted by you, your attorney will receive a percentage of that total settlement as their fee and will be repaid for any costs incurred.
