Drunk Driver Accidents
Seeking Compensation for Injuries Caused by OUI Drivers
Driving under the influence of alcohol is one of the most dangerous things a driver can do. A huge percentage of the motor vehicle accidents that happen in Massachusetts every year — especially those causing serious injuries and fatalities — are caused by drunk driving.
If you have been injured or have lost a loved one in an accident caused by a drunk driver, experienced Bedford-Concord drunk driver accident lawyer Peter G. DeGelleke can help you hold the responsible party accountable and pursue fair compensation for the harm done to you.
Helping Accident Victims Hold Drunk Drivers Accountable
Usually, after an accident, if there is evidence that one driver was drinking, he or she will be charged with operating under the influence (OUI) or another criminal offense. The outcome of the criminal case could have an impact on any personal injury claims against that driver.
As an attorney with extensive experience in both personal injury and criminal law, Mr. DeGelleke understands how best to protect the interests of drunk driving accident victims.
If you hire Mr. DeGelleke to help you seek compensation for your injuries, he will communicate with the police and prosecutors to obtain any available information that will support your claim.
He will also investigate where the drunk driver was served alcohol before getting behind the wheel. Under dram shop and social host laws, bars, restaurants, liquor stores, and private homeowners can be held accountable for serving alcohol to visibly intoxicated people.
