Aggressive North Dakota Lawyers Pursuing Justice for Victims of Drunk Drivers, DUI
Don’t pay the price for a drunk driver’s negligence
Being at the top of the list might sometimes be a good thing, but not when it is the top of the list of states with the highest number of drunk driving fatalities and DUI arrests. North Dakota ranks near the top of the list nationwide in both categories. At the Larson Law Firm P.C., our team of respected North Dakota drunk driving injury attorneys achieves results that allow drunken driving accident victims to be compensated for the damages suffered at the hands of a drunk driver.
Drunk drivers pose a substantial risk to innocent motorists, passengers and pedestrians
North Dakota imposes harsh criminal penalties on motorists who are caught driving while intoxicated. Civil laws are designed to provide a financial remedy for innocent victims who suffer debilitating and life-threatening injuries. If you have been injured in a car accident caused by a drunk driver, you may be entitled to compensation. Our experienced car accident attorneys obtain damages for victims based on the following:
- Medical expenses. Hospital costs, physician’s bills, prescription medications and the costs associated with physical and occupational therapy to make a victim whole again are recoverable from the driver whose negligence caused the accident.
- Lost earnings. Being injured and out of work because of an accident with a drunk driver can pose a financial strain on a victim.
- Pain and suffering. These are the physical and emotional stresses to which an injury victim or the family of a deceased victim is subjected. Pain, temporary and permanent disability, physical scarring and emotional disorders that might arise following a drunk driving accident constitute some of the elements of pain and suffering.
- Property damage. Damage caused to an accident victim’s vehicle or other personal property items is recoverable from the drunk or negligent driver causing the accident.
Quality representation from innovative and resourceful drunk driving accident lawyers
Our skilled attorneys focus on all possible causes of your injuries in a drunk driving accident. We know the law and take whatever steps necessary to get you the compensation to which you are entitled. Depending upon the facts of your case, this could include filing a lawsuit against third parties who provide drinks to someone who appears to be intoxicated. Referred to as dram shop laws, these regulations attempt to hold providers of alcoholic beverages responsible for an accident and injuries caused by a drunk driver. State law holds bars, restaurants and other businesses or individuals liable who sell alcoholic beverages to a person under 21 years of age or to someone who is 21 years of age and older who is obviously intoxicated and causes an accident.
Our tenacious North Dakota drunk driving attorneys have an outstanding record of proven success standing up for the rights of accident victims. Whether you were hit by a drunk driver while going through the oil patch, while traveling on local highways, or even in your own neighborhood, we can help.
