Drunk Driver

Motor vehicle accidents caused by drunk or impaired drivers are all too common in Louisiana. If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of the fault of an intoxicated driver, you may be able to recover punitive damages. You need an experienced attorney, and we have a thorough understanding of the law and successfully handled many drunk driver cases.

Although the consumption of alcohol is the most common form of intoxication, the law also imposes punitive damages on those who are impaired as a result of using illegal drugs or the abuse of prescription medications. When handling impaired driver cases, our attorneys often retain an expert (usually a toxicologist) to assess the positive test results of the impaired driver and give their opinion on the effect of the intoxicating substance on the driver’s ability to operate a vehicle safely. This helps us build the strongest case possible in pursuit of recovering damages for you.

Some common injuries suffered in drunk driver cases include:

  • Broken bones
  • Cuts/lacerations
  • Head trauma
  • Concussion/brain injury
  • Spine injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Internal organ injuries
