Illinois Drunk Driving Accident Injuries Lawyer

In the words of the Illinois DUI Fact Book 2012, issued by Secretary of State Jesse White, "Illinois recognizes DUI as a violent crime." A driver who was under the influence of alcohol in an accident that caused injury or death has a serious legal problem. Also in the words of the Illinois DUI Fact Book 2012: "85 percent of all drivers arrested for DUI are first offenders." Unfortunately, property damage, injuries and death sometimes occur, and may be a direct result of drunk driving, even in the case of a first-time offender. "436 people were killed in alcohol-related crashes, which was 47 percent of the 927 total crash fatalities," according to the Illinois Department of Transportation.

If you were the one injured or if your loved one was killed, you, meanwhile, face extraordinary expenses and losses:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

Injuries in drunk driving accidents are often more severe than those in accidents that do not include drunk drivers. Severe and catastrophic injuries such as the following can cause extraordinary hardships to entire families:

It doesn't matter whether the person driving intended to drink, drive and hurt someone or not. The damage is done after someone has suffered a spinal cord injury, a head injury or broken bones. Perhaps more than one person in your vehicle was injured and your family faces multiple losses and challenges. It is certainly understandable if you believe you should be compensated as DUI accident victims with injuries from a drunk driver.

Brady & Jensen, LLP Attorneys At Law, can advise you on the best strategies for pursuing maximum available compensation from all liable parties. If the drunk driver of the other vehicle was served alcohol in a commercial establishment shortly before the accident, you may have the opportunity to file a dram shop claim against that bar, restaurant or other liquor-serving business.

Were you or was your loved one harmed in an Illinois drunk driving accident? Injuries? Attorneys at Brady & Jensen, LLP Attorneys At Law, can help you pursue economic justice whether or not the state pursues criminal justice.
