Drunk Driving Accidents in Salt Lake City

A Trusted Law Firm Serving Clients Throughout Utah

Drunk drivers need to be held accountable for the damage they cause in drunk driving accidents. If you were hit by a drunk driver and seriously injured, please do not hesitate to reach out to Lowe Law Group and our Salt Lake City DUI accident lawyers. Together, by bringing claims against drunk drivers, we can help correct peoples’ behaviors and hopefully bring an end to drunk driving in Salt Lake City.

How Can Police Evidence Help Your Drunk Driving Claim?

Drinking a Beer While Driving

A drunk driving accident is different from most other car accidents in that the liable party was clearly breaking the law at the time of the collision. This circumstance will get the police involved with investigations, which can be a benefit to you, the plaintiff. While criminal courts are separate from civil courts, the driving under the influence (DUI) charges filed against the liable driver can be used to bolster your case. Keep in mind that someone convicted of drunk driving will likely not be sentenced to pay you any sort of compensation, no matter what damage they caused you. To get compensation for DUI accidents, you have to file a personal injury claim and use strong evidence to back it up.

Unique evidence of liability to use in a drunk driving accident claim:

  • Police reports from the scene of the accident
  • Drunk driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test result
  • Conviction or guilty plea from adjacent criminal case
  • Driver’s record of DUI arrests or charges

What Compensation Can You Seek in a Drunk Driving Accident Claim?

Anyone hit by a negligent driver can seek damages through a claim to help pay for:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Vehicle repairs
  • Emotional trauma

In a drunk driving accident claim, though, you may be able to also pursue punitive damages. A court can assign punitive damages when the defendant was conducting an obvious wrongdoing at the time of the accident. Since driving while intoxicated is against the law, it is reasonable to say that the behavior should be met with additional punitive damages. We can also help you seek compensation for wrongful death if the collision tragically resulted in the death of a loved one.

How Do You Recover Damages in Your Drunk Driving Case?

Utah has the nation’s lowest threshold for driving under the influence of alcohol. If a driver is found to have a blood alcohol content level of 0.05% or higher, they can be charged with a DUI. The state understands that alcohol severely impairs a driver’s ability to make logical decision on the road.

If you are filing a drunk driving lawsuit in an attempt to go after the full and fair compensation you are owed, you will need a devoted and capable attorney to help you seek justice and the rightful compensation your family deserves. Our law firm can utilize these laws to help you build a resilient case.
