Do Not Take Any Chances After Your Drunk Driving Accident
If you have been have been injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver, you should not settle for anything less than full compensation. While there are strict laws limiting punitive damages in North Carolina car wrecks, there are provisions allowing higher damages for claims against drunk drivers. With the right representation, a suit against a drunk driver could be worth 25 percent more than a regular car wreck.
As one of only four states in the country with strict contributory negligence, it is important to have an attorney familiar with North Carolina laws on your side. What this means is that if you were partly responsible for your accident, you may not be eligible for compensation. However, drunk driving is considered aggravated negligence; it overrides contributory negligence, and you have a greater chance at recovery.
