Protecting The Rights Of Accident Victims Since 1925
Accidents involving DUIs often leave the victims facing a mountain of medical bills and an uncertain future. You may wonder how you will make ends meet, particularly if you are temporarily or permanently unable to return to work. Dealing with the auto insurance companies on your own can be frustrating and overwhelming.
That’s where we can step in. At Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington, PLLC, a personal injury firm in Louisville, our attorneys handle drunk driving accident cases for innocent victims and their families. We understand the legal intricacies involved in drunk driving cases. We will stand up for your rights and help you get the financial recovery you deserve.
Our firm enjoys a proven track record of success in personal injury cases. For example, we obtained a $1.1 million verdict on behalf of an honors high school student who was struck by a drunk driver in a head-on collision.
What Can You Recover?
Drunk driving cases often involve reckless – or, in legal terms, “grossly negligent” – conduct on the part of the drunk driver. The very act of getting behind the wheel while intoxicated often indicates a disregard for the lives of others on the road.
In Kentucky, punitive damages may be available in these types of cases. The goal of punitive damages is to punish the wrongdoer and deter others from engaging in such dangerous behaviors. As a result, the amount of punitive damages is often significant.
Other types of damages you may be able to recover include compensation for:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical and rehabilitation expenses
- Lost wages
- Other out-of-pocket expenses relating to the accident
Our attorneys will work diligently to help you obtain a fair and just outcome.
