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.

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.
