I’m Leslie Rhode and this is an AskTheLawyers.com legal brief. Drunk driving remains a serious epidemic on American roads. Every day 29 people in the U.S. die in vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol impaired driver. That’s according to the CDC. When you are seriously injured or lose a loved one due to someone else’s reckless actions, you have the right to seek justice. The drunk driver may face criminal charges, but those do nothing to help the victims with their medical bills, their lost wages, and other expenses.
Jack Hickey is an injury attorney based in Miami. He says that preserving evidence is crucial in a drunk driving case. He recommends taking as many photos and videos of the accident scene as possible, including the cars, the road, and the drunk driver. He says:
“When you’re dealing with drunk driving, the driver of the other car is very much a piece of evidence. If you are someone you’re with is capable, go back and videotape that driver if that driver remains in the car and is slumped over the wheel, or if that driver gets out of the car when he or she is staggering, slurring their words, or glassy eyed. You want to get that on video.”
Hickey says that victims of a drunk driving accident should seek out an attorney who handles personal injury cases to help them seek recovery.
