Drunk Driving Accidents & Wrongful Death

Many accidents that involve drunk drivers end up being fatal. When someone makes the decision to drink and drive, they are acting recklessly with their life and the life of every other person on the road. All too often, innocent people are killed because of these choices. When a loved one has been killed due to the recklessness or negligence of another, the family can file a wrongful death claim. Wrongful death can help the family recover funeral expenses, medical bills, lost wages, and more.
