Drunk Driving Accidents
Have you or a loved one been injured in a car accident that was caused by a drunk driver?
The Kansas drunk driving accident lawyers at DeVaughn James are dedicated to holding drunk drivers accountable for causing accidents and injuring innocent victims. With years of experience on our side, we know the steps to take to pursue compensation for your lost wages, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and more.
Car Accident Cases Involving DUI/DWI
Typically, claims made in normal car accident cases are civil actions. This means that our accident lawyers will make a claim against the other driver’s insurance company to provide compensation for your injuries.
However, car accidents that involve driving under the influence (DUI) and driving while intoxicated (DWI) are not typical cases. Because DUI/DWI is a criminal offense, you may have the right to seek punitive damages. Punitive damages are payments that the negligent driver may have to provide to you as a form of punishment for driving while drunk.
Investigating Drunk Driving Cases
In most drunk driving accident cases, we can prove that the at-fault driver was drunk based on failed sobriety tests conducted by the police.
In addition to proving the at-fault driver was drunk, we'll also conduct a thorough investigation that involves searching the accident scene for evidence, collecting witness statements, analyzing the accident report, examining medical evidence, and more.
