Fighting For Those Who Have Been Injured by a Drunk Driver in the Las Vegas Area

The greater Las Vegas area is known for its hotels, convention centers, gambling, and entertainment. Millions of people and locals enjoy the party atmosphere of the area which also involves alcohol. Unfortunately, the consumption of alcohol can lead to traffic accidents that leave victims seriously injured. These accidents are not uncommon in the area. Las Vegas ranks among the top cities in the country for DUI charges. While DUI is a criminal charge that can result in heavy fines, potential jail time, and other court penalties imposed against the driver, it is not designed to compensate victims of drunk drivers whose lives may be profoundly changed through the injuries they suffer. That involves a separate civil process through a personal injury claim or lawsuit. 

If you or someone you love has been injured by a drunk driver, you deserve fair compensation for all of your losses and damages. In some circumstances, you may even be awarded punitive damages. 

At Sierra Nevada Injury Lawyers, we can help you in the aftermath of such an accident with all of the details involved in making a claim against the at-fault driver. We can gather all of the critical evidence, such as the police report, witness testimony, photos, video footage, and more to document your case as well as the medical records needed to pursue the justice you deserve through a negotiated settlement on your behalf.

Drunk Driving Accidents In Nevada

Drunk driving is illegal and is never acceptable due to the risk of injury and death it poses for others. Despite this, individuals drink and drive every day in this country, leaving in their wake severely injured people. Driving in an intoxicated state can be considered an aggravating factor that can lead to a larger settlement amount for victims due to its egregious nature. In some cases where the circumstances were grossly negligent, punitive damages may be awarded as well as the standard damages of any personal injury case.

These damages can include:

How To Prove DUI In A Drunk Driving Accident Claim

Drunk driving as the cause of the accident can be proven in several ways. The most obvious is if the driver was convicted in the criminal court. Even if the driver managed to escape conviction, other evidence may support the claim, such as police reports, breathalyzer test results, video footage, including from cameras law enforcement wear, and witness reports. In these cases, the standard of proof is lower than that in criminal cases. Instead of proving matters “beyond a reasonable doubt,” only a “preponderance of the evidence” is needed to prove drunk driving as the cause of an accident in a civil matter.
