Impaired or Intoxicated Driver
Protect Your Rights After an Impaired or Intoxicated Truck Accident
Huge semi-trucks are potentially dangerous, even when operated properly
and under ideal roadway and weather conditions. Add an impaired or intoxicated
driver into the mix, and a catastrophic brew is created. Every year, impaired
and intoxicated big rig drivers cause accidents that take the lives of,
and seriously injury, innocent victims.
If you have been injured in an impaired driver truck accident, you are
entitled to justice. You have the right to seek full compensation, money
for the losses that were caused by the reckless, negligent conduct of
an intoxicated semi-truck driver.
The sad, stark reality is that your injuries may be profound. Your life
may never be the same. You need a fighter in your corner that is ready
to take on the insurance company, the commercial truck driver, and the
motor carriage company to protect your crucial rights. An impaired driver
truck accident injury lawyer from The Doan Law Firm has the depth of experience,
the tenacity, and the commitment you need to get justice in your case.
Our firm is dedicated to the goal of getting your life back on course
after being harmed because of the inexcusable misconduct of a big rig
operator. We stand ready to begin fighting for your rights today and can
be reached right now at (800) 349-0000.
Intoxicated Truck Drivers Game the System and Threaten Your Safety
A truly horrifying situation that plays out time and again when it comes
to impaired and intoxicated commercial truck drivers causing accidents
is the manner in which big rig operators game the system. A prime example
involves random substance tests drivers are to submit to in order to remain
in compliance with legal requirements.
The reality is that if a driver fails a test and loses his or her position
with a cartage company, that driver will obtain employment elsewhere and
not disclose the drug test failure. Time and again, trucking companies
do not undertake due diligence and never discover a driver's substance
use, or even abuse and addiction, issues.
Justice and Compensation in Your Truck Accident Injury Case
Compensation in your truck accident injury case depends on the facts and
circumstances of the matter, including the nature and extent of your injuries.
With that said, an impaired operator truck accident injury lawyer from
our firm will fight to ensure you get full compensation for losses that include:
- pain and suffering
- medical bills and expenses
- mental anguish and emotional distress
- permanent disability
- permanent disfigurement
- lost income
- property damage
A member of our legal team will also fight to ensure that you obtain appropriate
compensation for losses that you can be expected in incur in the future
as well. For example, in the aftermath of your impaired operator truck
accident, you may require medical care and treatment for an extended period
of time. You are entitled to compensation for these future medical expenses.
The facts of your case may also warrant punitive damages. Punitive damages
are extra compensation when the conduct of the parties causing the accident
is deemed particularly reckless or egregious.
Holding All Truck Accident Injury Parties Responsible
A member of our legal team will work tirelessly to bring all parties responsible
for causing the accident and your injuries to justice. This is likely
to include not only the driver but the owner of the trucking company itself.
