Understanding Washington DUI Accidents

Despite the state’s strict laws and penalties for those convicted of DUI, drunk driving accidents continue to occur. Washington’s criminal justice system focuses on punishing the wrongdoer but the civil courts provide options for injury victims to recover their losses after a drunk driver causes them harm. Drinking and driving greatly impacts driving ability with the following ill effects:

  • Decreased concentration
  • Reduced hand-eye coordination
  • Slowed reaction times
  • Vision problems
  • Drowsiness
  • Diminished cognitive ability

Drunk drivers may drive aggressively or dangerously, putting the lives of others at risk. Getting behind the wheel after drinking is a reckless and illegal choice that also leaves the driver responsible for property damage, injuries, and fatalities in an accident. 

What Can I Get From a Drunk Driving Accident Claim?

Depending on the severity of your injuries, you could recover financial compensation for some or all of the following common damages:

  • Property damage
  • Medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses
  • Diminished future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Any other non-economic damages that apply like disfigurement compensation, loss of consortium, loss of enjoyment of life, or PTSD

Your drunk driving accident attorney in Everett from Wells Trumbull will carefully calculate your damages to ensure that you recover the maximum amount available.
