Filing a Drunk Driver Accident Claim

If you were injured in an accident that was caused by an individual whose ability to drive had been impaired by alcohol consumption, whether legally intoxicated or not, you have the right to file a claim to recover damages. Depending on the drunk driver’s past driving record, and the severity of your injuries, he or she could face fines, driver’s license suspension, probation, or jail time.

What is the Average Settlement for Drunk Driving Accidents?

The guilty party will also be responsible for paying any damages. These expenses are usually taken care of through the individual’s insurance company. While it's difficult to make a general statement about drunk driving settlement amounts (since all accidents are different), most settlements take into account the following damages:

  • Injuries
  • Hospital bills
  • Long-term medical treatment
  • Lost wages
  • Vehicle repair or replacement
  • Rental car
  • Funeral expenses
