Dothan Drunk Driving Accidents
Crashes Caused by Drunk Drivers
Drinking and driving is a serious problem on the roads and highways of Alabama, injuring or claiming the lives of innocent people every year. According to statistics provided by Mothers' Against Drunk Driving (MADD), one out of every three fatal car accidents in our state are DUI related, with a total of 1,626 DUI fatalities over the past five years. Some people can get away with driving drunk for years without being caught, while others will cause a fatal accident the first time. Nearly anyone will agree that driving after consuming alcohol is dangerous, but many drivers continue to place everyone at risk by getting behind the wheel drunk.
At Morris, Cary, Andrews, Talmadge & Driggers, LLC, we take pride in holding drunk drivers accountable for their actions. Even if the driver is convicted on charges of DUI, the criminal penalties will do nothing to compensate you for your losses. With the help of a Dothan personal injury attorney however, you may be able to recover monetary damages for everything from your medical expenses and lost income to the pain and suffering you have experienced. If your accident took place in South East Alabama or anywhere throughout Tri-State Area, we urge you to contact us now for a free consultation and to get started on your case.
Filing an Accident Claim in Montgomery or Dothan
Recovering compensation in a personal injury or
wrongful death case depends on being able to demonstrate by a preponderance of the evidence that the other party is at fault for causing the accident. In the case of a collision caused by a drunk driver, this should be a relatively simple proposition. Don't assume, however, that the insurance company will see it that way. With their own bottom-line at stake, they are likely to do whatever they can to minimize or even deny your claim. Level the playing field by hiring us to represent you. We are on your side and want to help you hold the drunk driver responsible, whether you were injured in Montgomery,
Dothan or anywhere else in Southeast Alabama.
