If you’ve been injured in a drunk driving accident, then you’re probably extremely angry at the person who caused you harm. This is an understandable emotion. After all, you’ve probably been left with unexpected and undeserved physical pain, emotional suffering, and financial damages that are far reaching, including medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and lost wages. Oftentimes car accident victims struggle to determine how to move forward with life post-wreck. This can leave you feeling overwhelmed and stressed.
Fortunately, a personal injury attorney may be able to help. When pursuing a personal injury claim, you are essentially seeking two things: accountability and compensation. With regard to accountability, an attorney can help you put forth evidence that shows that the individual in question caused the accident and did so because he or she was acting with negligence. If you can show that negligence occurred, that negligence caused the accident, and that accident left you harmed, then you will be able to impose liability. This can bring relief to an injured individual, especially when criminal charges were beaten or never filed in the first place.
On the economic front, a lawyer can help you show a judge and jury the true extend of your harm. Although it may be relatively easy to calculate your accumulated medical expenses and lost wages, there is often a lot left to argument when you consider future financial losses and noneconomic losses such and pain and suffering and disfigurement. A skilled attorney may be able to help you present evidence that is persuasive as to why you are seeking the amount of damages claimed in your lawsuit.
