drunk driving

If you have been hit by a drunk driver, that person may be responsible for paying your noneconomic damages (i.e., pain and suffering) and some excess economic damages (i.e., medical bills and attendant care). However, various factors like the severity of your injuries, disfigurement (i.e., scarring), whether or not you have insurance, and whether or not you are a resident of Michigan can all impact what and how much you can recover against a drunk driver. Additionally, in many cases you can also sue the bar or other party that sold or provided the alcohol to the drunk driver in what is called a dram shop action. Because drunk driving cases can be very complex, it is always best to talk to an attorney as soon as possible after your accident.

What is Drunk Driving?

Under Michigan law, there are several different types of DUIs. Anyone driving either a motor vehicle or watercraft with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of over 0.08 may be charged with OWI (Operating While Intoxicated). Those under 21 can be charged if there is even a trace of alcohol in their system while operating a vehicle. There is similarly no minimum BAC level for OWVI (Operating While Visibly Impaired) charges. These charges may be brought against any driver who is obviously unable to safely operate their vehicle and are typically dependent on law enforcement’s observations. Those driving a vehicle while under the influence of narcotics may be charged with OWPD (Operating With the Presence of Drugs).

The presence of one or multiple of these charges can make an accident case even more complicated, but our expert attorneys can make sure that you are aware of all of your options and rights and that you receive the compensation you are entitled to.

While it may be obvious to you who is to blame for the car crash, legally establishing a driver’s negligence and your severe personal injury can be a complicated process. Our Michigan drunk driving accident lawyers have the experience to help you understand how your claim and benefits are affected. 

Our team of drunk driving accident lawyers can protect your rights and establish who is at fault. This is an important step for victims of Michigan car accidents, especially when a drunk driver is involved. Michigan is a comparative fault state. If even some of the fault for the accident is assigned to you, the drunk driver’s insurance company will only have to pay you part of the verdict. Insurance companies will fight as hard as they can to pin as much blame as they can on you to try to minimize their losses. An experienced drunk driving lawyer like those at the Mike Morse Law Firm will know how to protect you from their tricks.

Car accidents can be overwhelming. Dealing with the effects of drunk driving accidents is often even more frustrating. Michigan law is designed to protect victims of drunk drivers, but you need an advocate who knows the law to help you fight big insurance companies. The expert attorneys at the Mike Morse Law Firm are ready to help. Call us today at 855-MIKE-WINS (855-645-3946) or contact us through our website to set up a free consultation.
