About Car Accidents Caused by Drunk Drivers

Every year many people suffer, are injured, and die from car accidents involving drunk drivers. The consumption of alcohol is illegal while operating a motor vehicle; however there are many people who do not heed this law.

Alcohol clouds the senses, as well as judgment; overall, alcohol inhibits someone's ability to operate a vehicle. When an intoxicated individual is driving, they are less likely to drive in such a way that is safe to others. Often, drunk drivers will swerve, speed, and change lanes quickly and without notice. These are dangerous maneuvers that can put other people's lives at risk.

At James Wood Law, our car accident attorney in Albuquerque can help you prosecute drunk driving claims and seek compensation on your behalf.

Common Types of Damages Suffered

When an accident occurs that involves a drunk driver, generally one or more people involved are seriously injured. These injuries can consist of anything from bruises and broken bones to spinal cord injuries and even traumatic brain injuries. These can be very serious injuries; some injuries can even result in death, in which case the victim would be the victim of wrongful death. These are very serious situations where those who have been hurt due to someone else's negligence deserve to be compensated for their injuries.
