Are You The Victim of a DUI Driving Accident?
Drinking and driving is strictly prohibited in Illinois and DUI laws are on the books to avoid unnecessary injury to drivers, both the DUI drivers and victims of such activity. Failure to adhere to DUI laws is a constant problem for society, and particularly for victims of collisions created by DUI drivers.
At Hall, Rustom & Fritz, advocacy for those injured in DUI accidents is one of our strongest areas of practice. Illinois has strict drunk driving laws and we enforce them vigorously. If you sustained a serious injury in an auto accident caused by a drunk driver, you should be compensated for your injuries and other expenses related to your accident. You should not be forced to pay your own medical bills and suffer financially because you are unable to work for weeks or months. Often in a case like this, a victim may bring forth a willful and wanton cause of action in addition to a negligence action. Willful and wanton behavior is unacceptable, and should be treated that way when handling serious injuries. Drunk drivers must be held responsible.
We fight aggressively to get compensation for our clients who are dealing with serious losses due to drunk drivers. A serious DUI accident in Illinois can lead to catastrophic injuries or even a wrongful death. The following are just a few serious injuries we have seen:
- Neck Injuries
- Multiple broken bones
- Internal injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
We can help you obtain the compensation you need for your losses after a drunk driving accident.
Reckless Behavior of a Drunk Driver Is Not Your Fault
In Illinois, the judicial system is geared to grant compensation for victims or plaintiffs and assess fault against those who cause injuries. The judicial system is not only about money. Money is the manner in which fault assessment is disseminated. But this is also about justice, about sending a message that such behavior will not be tolerated in our society.
