Helping Accident Victims Focus on Recovery

Injuries Caused by Drunk Driving Accidents

Have You Been Injured? Call 434.738.2300.

Have you or a loved one suffered serious personal injury in an auto accident involving a drunk driver? Individuals who elect to operate a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol are an extremely dangerous threat to other vehicles and drivers on the road.

Many times, drunk drivers who are involved in accidents have driven under the influence before, and simply assume that they will not be caught or end up causing any harm. However, when they do cause injury and death to other people, our Lynchburg drunk driving accident lawyers at the office of Randall J. Trost, P.C. believe that they should be held fully responsible for their actions.

In order to recover punitive damages, it is necessary to prove that the driver:

  • Had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.15 or more at the time of the accident
  • Either knew or should have known that his or her ability to operate a motor vehicle would be impaired if they became intoxicated
  • Had a level of intoxication that proximately caused injury or death to the victim

Collecting Detailed Evidence to Strengthen Your Case

The standard of proof for recovering punitive damages in drunk driving accident cases is high, and it can be difficult to provide an adequate level of evidence in your favor without the assistance of an experienced team of Lynchburg drunk driving accident attorneys.

Our team has an in-depth knowledge of the law surrounding these cases, can help you determine if you have sufficient cause to take legal action, and can put together a detailed claim on your behalf through depositions, production of documents, subpoenas, and more. Even if the drunk driver in the accident had a BAC below 0.15, you still may be able to recover compensatory damages, such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
