Minneapolis Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys

Bringing Claims Against Inexcusably Negligent Drivers

A drunk driver who causes a car accident should be arrested, charged, prosecuted, and convicted. At what point do the needs of those they injure come into question, though? During the criminal processes, your rights as a crash victim do not take center stage. If you want compensation for what a drunk driver did to you, then you have to file a civil claim against them.

Lowe Law Group and our Minneapolis drunk driving accident lawyers can help you every step of the way when preparing an injury claim against an intoxicated motorist. We can use our extensive legal backgrounds to move your case along while you focus on taking care of yourself and your family. Even though an injury claim is not part of criminal court procedures, we will pursue your claim with the intensity and tenacity as if it was.

Drunk Driving is an Inexcusable Risk

There is simply no excuse for a motorist to drink and drive. Everyone instinctively knows the behavior is dangerous. Furthermore, there are always campaigns run by statewide and nationwide safety groups to warn people about the dangers of drunk driving. Even companies that sell and market alcohol are now telling people to never drink and drive.

The Minnesota Office of Traffic Safety has data that also clearly shows the dangers of drunk driving:

  • At least 84 traffic fatalities in 2018 were caused by drunk drivers
  • 72 drunk driving fatalities were reported in 2017, so the behavior is on the rise
  • More than 2,000 people are seriously injured in drunk driving crashes each year in Minnesota
  • Only about 5% of all DWIs involve underage drinkers
  • Approximately half of all drunk driving arrests happen on weekends
  • Average BAC level of drunk drivers is 0.15, nearly twice the legal limit

If we can find convincing evidence that the driver who hit you was intoxicated, then we can leverage that to put as much liability on them as possible. Since drunk driving is so obviously dangerous and continues to cause havoc across the state’s streets and highways each year, we can build your argument around the egregious negligence or recklessness of the other driver.

Using Criminal Evidence in Your Injury Claim

The evidence used against the defendant in a driving while intoxicated case can end up favoring you as the claimant in a drunk driving accident claim. Police investigators will be trying to prove that the defendant was legally intoxicated while driving. What they find could be used by our attorneys when we represent you.

Useful pieces of evidence to consider include:

  • Police reports from the crash site
  • Driver’s recorded BAC level
  • In-court testimonies
  • Conviction

What happens if the court does not find the other driver guilty of drunk driving? While you would not be able to point to a conviction as evidence of liability, it does not defeat your claim. Drunk drivers can be acquitted in criminal court but still be found liable in civil court. It is just a matter of making a convincing argument with a team of talented legal professionals.
