Common Injuries in Drunk Driving Accidents

Some of the most common injuries include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI): These can vary from mild concussions to severe brain damage, leading to long-term cognitive and physical impairments.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: These injuries can result in partial or complete paralysis, significantly affecting the victim's quality of life and capacity to conduct daily activities.
  • Broken Bones and Fractures: High-impact collisions often cause multiple fractures, demanding extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation.
  • Internal Injuries: Harm to internal organs can be life-threatening and could require emergency surgery and prolonged hospital stays.
  • Whiplash and Neck Injuries: Even at lower speeds, the sudden impact can cause significant neck and back injuries, resulting in chronic pain and mobility problems.
  • Lacerations and Bruising: While seemingly minor, these injuries can lead to substantial pain, scarring, and the risk of infection.

What Damages Could Be Recovered in a Drunk Driving Accident Claim?

Victims of drunk driving accidents are qualified to seek compensation for various damages. A successful claim can help relieve the financial strain and support recovery. The types of damages that may be recovered include:

  • Medical Expenses: Compensation for past, current, and future medical bills related to the accident. This includes hospital stays, surgeries, medications, physical therapy, and other necessary treatments.
  • Lost Wages: If the injury has impacted your ability to work, you can claim compensation for the wages lost during your recovery period. This also includes loss of earning capability if the injuries have a long-term effect on your ability to earn an income.
  • Pain and Suffering: This non-economic damage compensates for the physical pain and emotional despair caused by the accident and subsequent injuries.
  • Property Damage: Reimbursement for restoring or replacing your vehicle and any other personal property damaged in the accident.
  • Loss of Consortium: If the injuries have adversely impacted your relationship with your spouse, you may be permitted to compensation for loss of companionship and support.
  • Punitive Damages: In cases where the drunk driver's behavior was particularly egregious, the court may award punitive damages to penalize the wrongdoer and prevent similar conduct.

Each case is unique, and the specific damages recovered will depend on the details and circumstances of the accident. Our Chicago drunk driving accident lawyer will thoroughly investigate your case to pinpoint all possible avenues for compensation.
