Drunk drivers who injure or kill people can be held liable for financial losses far beyond the initial damages for medical bills and property loss. Since drunk drivers realize they put others in our community at risk by driving drunk, their actions constitute gross negligence and a reckless indifference towards the well-being of others. If the facts of the case indicate gross negligence was involved, an injury victim may be able to recover punitive damages as well as damages for pain and suffering and loss in quality of life along with losses for property damage and medical bills.

At Stambaugh Law P.C., our attorneys work with investigators, police, and medical experts in holding drunk drivers financially accountable for the injuries they cause to others and the risks they pose in our community. If you’ve been injured in an accident or lost a family a member due to a drunk driver, contact us today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case.

Establishing the Impact of a Drunk Driving Collision on Our Client

It’s important for jurors to understand how a person’s irresponsible decision to drink and drive affected our client and his or her family. That’s why we present “before” and “after” pictures of our client. In some cases, we create a “day-in-the-life” video in order to show the court what our client has to go through in getting out of bed, getting ready for the day, performing certain kinds of tasks, and what they can no longer do as a result of their injuries. We connect a face, a life, and a family to the event and the injuries discussed in court.
