What Is the Average Settlement for a Drunk Driving Accident?

A drunk driving accident can turn a life upside down in an instant. It could cause a person to suffer serious injuries that make it difficult to perform daily tasks. It could result in lasting fear, anxiety, or sleep loss. It could even take someone’s beloved family member away from them. 

Those are just some of the devastating consequences associated with these crashes. Drunk driving settlements are meant to compensate victims for what was lost due to the accident. For that reason, the amounts can be quite significant, especially when a skilled lawyer is involved.

We have obtained six-figure settlements for clients injured in drunk driving accidents. You can view our verdicts and settlements from previous injury cases. Keep in mind that every situation is unique. Our attorneys will tell you what your specific motor vehicle accident might be worth.

Calculating Personal Injury Claim Value

Many different factors must be considered when properly assessing the true value of your injury claim. It is possible to seek compensation for a wide variety of damages, including things like:

  • Medical treatment
  • Income
  • Property loss
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress 

Never rush into a settlement. Get a clear picture of your damages first. Resist the pressure from the insurance company. And remember that your case will be much stronger after the driver is convicted of driving under the influence. It will lessen your burden of proof in a civil hearing.

Compensation in a Wrongful Death Case

Tragically, many drunk driving accidents are deadly. Approximately 28 people die in drunk driving crashes every single day in the United States, according to statistics from NHTSA.

If a loved one lost their life due to a collision caused by a drunk driver, you may have a wrongful death claim. Our attorneys can help your family seek the compensation you need to stay afloat.
