Drunk Drivers Can Cause Serious Accidents

There are few things more dangerous than getting behind the wheel of a car after having too much to drink. According to statistics provided by Responsibility.org, in a single year in Washington state, there were 166 total alcohol-impaired driving fatalities. Alcohol-impaired driving fatalities also comprised ~30 percent of total fatalities that same year. What’s more, there were a whopping 27,632 driving under the influence arrests in a single year in Washington.

When a drunk driver gets behind the wheel of the car, their reaction time, judgment, and reasoning are all impaired. Swerving, speeding, and other dangerous behavior can lead to deadly accidents.

What Do I Have to Prove to Win My Suit Against a Drunk Driver?

If you are involved in a crash with a drunk driver in Washington, you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries. Washington is an at-fault state, which means whoever causes an accident is responsible for paying for it.

Proof of a blood alcohol concentration of .08 percent or above (the legal limit) can help you to win your case and prove that the other driver was to blame for the crash; however, it’s not the only way to hold a drunk driver liable for your crash. In fact, all you need to prove is that the other driver breached the duty of care owed to you by doing something negligent, such as speeding, swerving, driving while distracted, etc. Even if you don’t have proof of intoxication, you can hold the at-fault driver liable for your damages. 

How Can a Kent Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer Help Me?

Our Kent drunk driving accident attorneys can help you by:

  • Proving the fault of the other driver, including obtaining a breathalyzer/toxicology report that shows the driver’s intoxication, police reports, eyewitness statements, accident reconstruction reports, and more;
  • Calculating your damages, accounting for all economic and noneconomic losses;
  • Negotiating your settlement and representing you in all conversations with the insurance adjuster assigned to your case; and
  • Filing a lawsuit and litigating your case in court if necessary.
