Brampton Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer

Accidents caused by drunk drivers can be fatal. They can also result in serious injuries, which may have life-changing consequences. Even if you’ve survived a traumatic accident involving a drunk driver, your injuries may prevent you from working or performing routine activities.

If you live or work in Brampton and have been injured in an accident involving a drunk driver, a drunk driving accident lawyer may be able to help you obtain compensation for the following:

  • Car repairs costs
  • Recovery of medical expenses
  • Physical and financial damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Wrongful death
  • And more if you qualify

Accidents caused by a drunk driver can have life-changing consequences. If you’ve sustained injuries as the result of a collision with a drunk driver, you may need to adjust your personal finances to cater to extra costs that emerge after the accident. Financial strains can add stress to your course of recovery, and place unfair burdens on you and your loved ones. However, you may be eligible to receive compensation and damages for your injuries and losses.

In Ontario, many impaired driving cases face dismissal for various reasons, and some never even reach trial. If you have been in a car accident and sustained injuries due to the carelessness of a motorist driving under the influence, the legal team at Preszler Injury Lawyers may be able to handle your case. Call 1-800-JUSTICE for an initial, free consultation today.

Establishing Responsibility in Drunk Driving Accident Cases

As explained by the Canadian Department of Justice, impaired driving is a crime under the Canada Criminal Code C-46. Drugs and alcohol limit a driver’s ability to responsibly operate and control a motor vehicle, which can have devastating consequences.

Equipped with the proper evidence, a drunk driving accident lawyer may be able to prove that the recklessness of the impaired driver caused you to suffer the injuries sustained in your accident.

In addition to a conviction, the at-fault party may receive other punishments, including:

  • License suspension
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device in your car
  • Vehicle impoundment
  • Payment of an administrative penalty
  • Jail time
  • Attendance a treatment program
  • Fine payment for conviction
  • Criminal record

Hiring a Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer

After an accident, it is important to seek medical treatment for injuries you sustain as a result of the collision.

Waiting too long to gather evidence may make your case vulnerable. A drunk driving accident lawyer serving Brampton may be able to help you collect critical evidence that supports your case. In certain instances, a blood alcohol sample from the drunk driver taken immediately following the accident can prevent insurance companies from shifting the burden of proof to the plaintiff.

Too often in cases of impaired driving, the at-fault party’s insurance company can conclude that there is not enough evidence to prove foul play. A drunk driving accident lawyer familiar with the process of seeking accident benefits may be able to help your negotiation with the responsible driver’s insurance company. If these negotiations fail, your lawyer may be able to take your case to trial to try procuring a fair settlement.

Steps to Getting Compensation

If you are eligible for compensation, a drunk driving accident lawyer may take some of the following steps to try proving your claim:

  • Investigate your car accident case
  • Speak with witnesses
  • Collect medical records
  • Protect your legal rights
  • Take care of the insurance claim procedures
  • File paperwork before any deadlines
  • Make use of the discovery process to your advantage
  • Negotiate on your behalf
  • And possibly more

Reach Out to a Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer

After sustaining injuries in a car accident, you may decide to handle the process of seeking accountability and financial restitution independently. But if your life has been seriously affected by the negligence of a drunk driver, a personal injury lawyer could help you shoulder the burden of this process, so you can focus on healing.

If you are eligible, Preszler Injury Lawyers may be able to help. For a free initial consultation, call us at 1-800-JUSTICE today.
