Right to compensation
Those innocent people who are injured as a result of the negligent actions of a drunk driver are allowed to recover compensation for their injuries, damages and losses. It is not unusual for those injured by a drunk driver to suffer life-altering injuries including severe burns and lacerations, broken limbs, head injury, paraplegia or even death. Those injured, and the families who have lost a loved one as a result of the car collision caused by the intoxicated driver, are entitled to recover for their medical expenses, loss of earnings, future medical expenses and loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, and potentially punitive damages due to the intentional negligent actions on the part of the intoxicated driver.
Compensation is not going to undo the damage or bring back your loved one; it can provide you and your family with the financial security that is essential after a serious injury or the loss of a loved one.
