Common Injuries in a Drunk Driving Accident
Drunk driving accidents can result in more serious injuries compared to those involved in accidents caused by sober drivers due to the driver’s inability to take any evasive measures in the moments before impact.
Here are some of the most common injuries:
- Broken arms and collarbones
- Back and neck injuries, including damage to the cervical spine
- Traumatic brain injuries and hemorrhages
- Sprains and strains
- Soft tissue damage
- Wrongful death
When injuries are debilitating, resulting in permanent damage from which a victim cannot recover, the damages involved can be exponentially greater.
In a drunk driving accident, there is also the potential for punitive damages. According to Oregon state law, if the at-fault party acted with malice or showed indifference to the health and safety of others, the injured party may seek punitive damages. If you sustained injuries in a drunk driving accident, you can get a substantially bigger settlement from the insurance company if the insured may be liable for punitive damages. Our legal team will work tirelessly to secure the compensation you deserve.
