We see it every day, don’t we? In fact, it is a relative rarity for even a brief period of time to pass that is absent news of a drunk driving-linked crash somewhere in Maryland.
Such outcomes yield predictable and often tragic consequences. Paradoxically, too, they often result in intoxicated motorists walking away from an accident unscathed while drivers and occupants of passenger vehicles (as well as motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians) are badly injured or killed.
We note that sad reality on our website at the established KMA Law Office in Severna Park. We stress therein that it is frequently the case for a drunk driver to not require any post-crash medical care at all, while third-party victims “are catastrophically injured.”
Proven and compassionate personal injury attorneys stand ready to assist accident victims and their loved ones in the wake of drunk driving crashes. Negligent parties and their insurance companies routinely – and unsurprisingly – make strong efforts to downplay liability and mitigate their damages. It is important that injured parties take timely and proactive action to safeguard their legal rights and secure a meaningful legal remedy for the harms they have suffered.
That remedy ideally comprises maximum compensation that is applicable to a broad spectrum of post-accident concerns. Among other things, a recovery can address matters such as these:
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses and future rehabilitation outlays
- Pain and suffering
- Long-term assistance in cases involving disability
Seeking a legal remedy is often an empowering experience for an accident victim, addressing accountability, deterrence and, of course, justice. An experienced and compassionate legal team can provide further information.
