St. Paul Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys
A drunk driving accident is not merely an accident caused by negligence. It is an accident caused by an illegal act. This detail not only impacts the way the auto accident case will be handled, it impacts the amount of compensation you may be entitled to.
Compensation for Drunk Driving Injuries in Minnesota
Personal injury compensation typically includes compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other costs related to the accident. These are obtained through an insurance claim in most cases. In drunk driving accident cases, victims may also be entitled to a form of compensation referred to as punitive damages.
Punitive damages are issued as part of the criminal case against the drunk driver. As a form of punishment, in addition to fines and possibly incarceration, the drunk driver may also be required to pay the victim a certain amount of money. At the law firm of Swor & Gatto, P.A., we will take great care to get you all of the compensation you are entitled to. If you are eligible for punitive damages because you were hit by a driver who was charged with driving under the influence (DUI)/driving while intoxicated (DWI), we will make certain you get them.
This is one of the benefits of working with lawyers who have dedicated their careers to personal injury claims, including auto accident claims. We know all the opportunities to maximize your compensation, so you can be certain you are getting every penny you deserve.
