With the winter holiday season in full swing, many people will be focused on celebrating through New Year’s. While there are drunk drivers on the road at all times of the year, the number tends to dramatically increase over the holidays. Unfortunately, this can result in other motorists having their season – and their lives – completely disrupted by a drunk driving crash,

Drunk drivers have their driving abilities and judgment impaired in many ways. They commonly cause serious collisions, including head-on crashes, side-swipes, read-end crashes, and more. All of these can lead to life-altering injuries to others, including:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury and paralysis
  • Shattered or crushed limbs
  • Internal organ damage
  • Severe burn injuries

When someone suffers a catastrophic injury, they will almost certainly incur extensive losses. These serious injuries require emergency treatment – often, including ambulance or medical helicopter transportation. Then, they might need long-term hospitalization, time in the intensive care unit, surgery and postoperative care, and a lengthy course of rehabilitative treatment and therapy.

Holding Drunk Drivers Liable for Your Losses

The losses stemming from a drunk driving crash can also be devastating. Often, losses can include:

  • Medical bills
  • Estimated costs of future medical treatment
  • Current and future lost earnings if an injury keeps you from working
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental trauma
  • Permanent disabilities and disfigurement

Drunk drivers should be held fully responsible for all of the harm and losses they cause. It is critical to have an experienced car accident lawyer in Los Angeles protecting your rights to compensation.
