What happens after a drunk driving accident?
Drunk driving accident cases are complex. This is because, in most situations, law enforcement is involved as well. At the scene of the accident, law enforcement will likely arrest the drunk driver because of the blood alcohol content laws they were breaking. The drunk driver will have two cases against them, your injury case and the criminal case for driving under the influence. While both cases are ongoing, complex issues may arise. Therefore, it is essential to retain the services of an experienced legal team that knows how to effectively navigate through any roadblocks that may arise. Some of the ways our firm can help with a complex case such as this include the following:
- Obtain field sobriety tests, an admission of guilt, and other evidence collected by law enforcement that will help fulfill the burden of proof so you can recover damages
- In addition to damages, you may be entitled to seek a restitution award once they are found to be guilty in criminal court of driving while intoxicated
- Taking legal action against the drunk driver’s insurance policy in accordance with Maryland’s laws that prohibit insurance carriers from denying claims because of their clients’ decision to drive while intoxicated
Injuries From a Drunk Driving Accident
When an individual makes the choice to drive drunk, they are often speeding or driving aggressively and erratically.

- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord damage, resulting in paralysis
- Permanent scarring
We are committed to recovering damages for the burdens you have faced as a result of the accident, including medical bills, lost wages, loss of independence, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more.
