Drunk Driving – Not Just a Criminal Matter
Drunk driving is not just a criminal matter for those who drive drunk. If you have been injured by a drunk driver, you have legal rights that entitle you to compensation under North Carolina personal injury laws. Likewise, if your loved one was killed in an accident caused by a drunk driver, you have the right to pursue a lawsuit against the driver for wrongful death benefits.
North Carolina personal injury laws state that if you have been injured in an accident due to the negligent, reckless, wanton, or careless actions of another person, you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries, medical bills, lost wages, property damage, mental anguish, and pain and suffering. Driving under the influence is a blatant form of negligence. Not only did the driver break the law, but he or she also disregarded the safety of other drivers and passengers on the road and put innocent people's lives at risk.
