Rights and options for accident victims of a DUI crash

Despite the efforts to keep negligent and unsafe drivers off of the roads in Iowa, these drivers do get behind the wheel of a vehicle and put numerous lives at risk. Drunk drivers are a major threat on the roadways and could be the cause of a serious or even fatal car accident. Our law firm understands that Iowa residents neither expect to be involved in an automobile collision nor are they prepared to deal with the aftermath of the accident. Furthermore, accident victims of a DUI crash may have the right to pursue a cause of action, and the alleged drunk driver could face both criminal and civil charges following the incident.

Our attorneys realize that a drunk driving accident could be particularly difficult for accident victims and their loved ones. When the reckless behavior of a driver causes serious injuries or fatalities, accident victims or the loved ones of the deceased are left seeking answers.

A drunk driver is considered a negligent driver, and when they get behind the wheel of a vehicle while impaired, that is considered a crime. In addition, victims could file a personal injury claim and loved ones of the deceased could file a wrongful death suit to seek damages associated with the accident.

Dealing with the aftermath of any type of automobile accident can be challenging for anyone, but a DUI crash could make it more difficult and emotional. Victims and their loved ones should understand their rights and options, and our law firm's drunk driving accident overview could be a great starting point for accident victims in a DUI crash who wish to pursue a civil lawsuit.
