Columbus Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers
Drunk drivers still create havoc on our roads decades after the public conscience began to recognize the dangers presented by driving while intoxicated. Our state legislature has enacted laws lowering the amount of alcohol people can have in their blood systems and it has increased penalties. Society as a whole looks down much more harshly on drunk driving, yet, people still get behind the wheel when they have had too much to drink.
Drunk drivers need to be held accountable for the damage they cause. Physical injuries and the impact they have can change a person's life permanently. A person may be unable to return to their job because of limitations caused by an injury. A parent may not be able to provide for a child. Drunk drivers need to compensate people for the harm they cause.
Additional Types Of Damages May Be Available For The Victims Of Drunk Drivers
In Ohio, punitive damages, which are not available in most car accident cases, are available when pursuing a claim against a drunk driver. Under Ohio's dram shop law, the victim of a drunk driver may also be able to pursue additional compensation from a bar or restaurant that served a noticeably drunken driver.
