DUI Car Accident Victims – Learn About Your Legal Rights in Missouri
Auto Accident DUI/DWI Victim
You’ve been involved in a drunk driving accident. Undoubtedly, you are still reeling from the collision, emotionally and physically. The injuries you sustained have left you in considerable and constant pain. To make matters worse, your medical expenses have exceeded your ability to pay for them, even with insurance coverage. While the driver responsible for the accident has been formally charged, this does little to ease your present circumstances. Undoubtedly, you are wondering:
- How will I ever pay for all of these medical bills?
- Will I ever recover from these injuries?
- Do I have any legal options?
- Should I call an injury attorney?
In the state of Missouri, you have the right to pursue a civil action against the at-fault drunk driver for monetary compensation. While this doesn’t undo the grievous injury done to you and your family, it can help with the financial burden. You’ll need to make the first move.
