Louisiana embraces celebrations. What it does not condone is consuming too much alcohol and then getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle. When individuals drive drunk and cause accidents that lead to injuries, Louisiana law responds with stiff criminal penalties. It also has laws allowing individuals who are injured by drunk drivers to collect compensation above and beyond the standard personal injury compensation in civil lawsuits.
At the office of Grady J. Flattmann Attorneys at Law, LLC, in Covington, we advocate aggressively on behalf of clients who have been injured or who have a family member who was killed in a motor vehicle accident caused by a drunk driver. Louisiana law states that an injured victim of drunk driving may pursue punitive damages against the driver in addition to compensation for medical costs, lost wages, property damage, long-term rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, and other expenses.
These cases are rarely as open-and-shut as they may seem. However, we have extensive experience advocating for victims of drunk driving car accidents. We know how to investigate them and how to build strong cases that often produce full and fair settlements without going to trial.
