Drunk Driving Accidents

 

Ocean Springs Drunk Driving Accident Attorney

 

OCEAN SPRINGS PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY SERVING GULFPORT, LONG BEACH, BILOXI AND PASCAGOULA

 

Every year over 300 people are killed in Mississippi by drunk drivers. Tragically, all of these accidents could have been avoided had the driver just handed the keys to someone else or taken a cab home. All car accidents can have serious consequences, but a drunk driver is particularly dangerous due to his or her decreased reaction time and impaired depth perception. This causes difficulty in stopping in time to avoid crashes, with the result that drunk driver impacts often occur at perilously high speeds.

Mississippi law provides that drunk drivers causing accidents can be held liable criminally, as well as civilly. This means that the driver is not only charged with a crime by the state, but is also accountable for the victims’ damages, including medical bills, lost wages, and other financial damages, as well as punitive damages. Drunk driving accidents leave evidence, and that evidence can be gathered, properly analyzed, and submitted on behalf of victims by an attorney experienced with this kind of case. If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident with a drunk driver, we strongly urge you to contact an Ocean Springs personal injury attorney to get the immediate assistance you will need.
