Have You Been Injured in a DUI Accident?

When someone who is under the influence of alcohol or other illicit substances causes an accident, establishing liability can be relatively straight forward. However, collecting adequate compensation for your injuries can be incredibly difficult without the help of an attorney.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. These statistics don't even account for the hundreds or even thousands of DUI injuries that occur in the state each year.

A Closer Look at DUI Accidents Criminal Charges vs. Civil Lawsuits
In Washington State, any time a driver is operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content over 0.08%, that driver is legally drunk. If a drunk driver causes a car accident, they not only face DUI criminal charges but liability for any injuries caused in a car accident. If you have been injured in an accident with a driver who is under the influence, our Bellevue, WA, law firm will hold them accountable for the damages they have caused.
A civil suit can be brought in an effort to seek reimbursement in cases where the person responsible for the accident was charged with DUI. Victims of these types of accidents can file a civil lawsuit to recover complete compensation for any losses they have incurred as a result of the accident. When seeking damages in a civil suit, our firm will work to show that the driver under the influence was responsible for the accident.
A criminal DUI matter involves Washington state prosecutors building a criminal case against the drunk driver. The injured party plays little, if any role, in any criminal proceedings. The state has to prove that the accused party was driving while over the legal limit beyond a reasonable doubt. A criminal conviction carries with it fines, the potential loss of driving privileges, and possible jail time.
