WHETHER YOU WERE INJURED IN CANADA OR THE US, OUR FIRM CAN REPRESENT YOU.

Accidents Caused By Drunk Drivers

Not only do drunk drivers face serious criminal consequences for their actions, but they can also cause devastating accidents. By missing traffic signals, failing to recognize slowed traffic or crossing the center dividing line on the road, drunk drivers can cause accidents that lead to serious, life-changing injuries. Responsibility for such accidents lies principally with the drunk driver; however, bars and taverns may also be liable for negligent overservice of alcohol. Likewise, the driver may have consumed medicine or other substances that may cause an adverse and surprising reaction.

At Cross Border Law, we understand that a serious accident can impact an entire family. While our goal is to work with the insurer to arrive at a beneficial settlement, our lawyers are prepared to represent you in court if the need arises. Our ability to represent both Canadian and United States clients is a direct benefit to individuals injured in Vancouver, British Columbia, or Seattle, Washington.

HOLDING DRUNK DRIVERS ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR NEGLIGENCE

Whether it is blurred perceptions, dulled reaction time or loss of motor control, drunk drivers can cause some of the more serious motor vehicle accidents on the road. These accidents can be caused by numerous situations, including:

  • Passing out behind the wheel
  • Drifting into oncoming traffic
  • Changing lanes without looking
  • Failure to leave appropriate stopping distance between cars
  • Driving through an intersection

Accidents caused by drunk drivers can result in catastrophic injuries or even fatalities. Drunk drivers will typically fail to slow down and collide with other vehicles at full speed. Additionally, it is common for drunk drivers to cause head-on collisions. The combined force of both vehicles leads to some of the most severe injuries possible. Don’t wait to explore your legal options for monetary compensation.

If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, it is important to discuss your matter with a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer. Our firm can be reached by calling either of our offices or by completing our convenient online contact form.
