Adding Insult To Injury
It’s bad enough to be seriously injured in a traffic accident. It’s worse when you learn that the other driver was drunk or high, and was driving aware of the degree of impairment, without giving one thought to your safety or the safety of others on the road.
You may think a drunk car collision is no different than a sober one. But there is a big difference. When drivers show extreme negligence behind the wheel — by driving under the influence (DUI), speeding, texting or otherwise displaying indifference to other drivers and pedestrians — juries can award punitive damages, to discourage such behavior in the future.
Conventional personal injury damages can pay for your medical bills, prescriptions, therapy, rehab, extended treatments and medical devices. They can also pay for time lost from work, vocational rehabilitation, and the pain and suffering your injuries have caused you.
Punitive damages, however, can double or even triple the conventional compensation you are awarded.
In addition to drunk driving accidents, attorney Kevin Martin represents victims of drivers who exhibit other kinds of misconduct, such as speeding and reckless driving. Take a moment now to call Martin Law Office, S.C., in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, for a free case evaluation.
