On each and every day of the year, it can be guaranteed that there are people who will choose to consume alcoholic beverages. Of that group, there are some who will make the reckless decision to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, thereby endangering the safety of not only themselves but also any other persons who are on the roadway. It is especially important to be mindful of this threat as the summer months creep along and bring many more events where these behaviors might be prevalent.
If you have been injured in a car accident that was caused by an intoxicated motorist, then you may be able to pursue a civil legal action in addition to the criminal prosecution that the State may conduct. A successful lawsuit can ensure that you have the resources necessary to address your post-accident needs.
