With any car accident, the repercussions can be life-changing for all those involved; this is especially true when the driver responsible was driving while intoxicated. Not only is drunk driving one of the leading causes of car accidents in the United States, but it can also often result in severe mental and physical injury which can have long-lasting consequences.
Under current Colorado law, if you are injured in a car accident caused by an individual who was intoxicated, you may be entitled to compensation to help cover your medical bills, accident-related expenses, and lost income as a result of the accident.
The majority of auto accidents are understandably stressful, and if you or someone you know has been involved in an accident where the other party was under the influence, it’s crucial that you speak with a knowledgeable firm that will be there with you every step of the way. Our firm, Green Law Firm P.C., has been operating since 2009 and is committed to helping you get through what might be one of the most stressful moments of your life.
Rest assured, if the other driver is intoxicated you are not at fault, and we will do everything in our power to ensure that you receive the compensation and care you deserve. Our team of experts is knowledgeable about how to best handle your situation and will treat you with the utmost compassion throughout the entire process.
Driving while intoxicated, especially when an accident occurs, carries serious consequences under Colorado law and can have personal repercussions for the individual in question. However, even if the driver who hit you receives criminal fines and/or jail time as the result of driving while intoxicated, you are not automatically entitled to compensation benefits. To receive the full benefits and compensation you deserve, you must file a separate civil lawsuit, which our firm can help you establish quickly and easily.
I Was Hit By A Drunk Driver… What Do I Do?
If you are involved in an accident of any kind caused by an intoxicated driver, you are likely entitled to compensation depending on your specific case. Under Colorado law, even if the driver is uninsured, your insurance would then be liable to help offset any of the costs incurred by their negligence while under the influence. Typically speaking, any compensation should come from the intoxicated driver’s insurance to help you get back on your feet.
If the driver at fault’s insurance refuses to reward you with the expected compensation, you then have the option of filing a lawsuit.
