What Damages Can I Recover in a DUI Accident Claim?

Personal injury claims which stem from DUI-related car crashes follow the same processes and procedures as any other car accident injury claim. Depending on the circumstances of your case, however, you may also have the ability to pursue punitive damages. Essentially, these are damages which are assessed to punish the drunk driver for his/her illegal and negligent behavior.

Punitive damages are typically secondary to other types of damages, such as

  • Medical expenses
  • Cost of rehabilitation treatment
  • Damage to property
  • Lost wages/future wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of Household Services provided
  • Ambulance costs
