Stamford, Bridgeport & Danbury Drunk Driving Attorney Helping To Obtain Compensation for Victims’ Injuries

Fighting for your financial recovery after a crash caused by a drunk driver

Often it is easy to lose sight of the fact that other motorists on the road may be intoxicated while driving. If you or a loved one has been seriously hurt by an intoxicated driver, The Reinken Law Firm has the knowledge and experience to protect your best interests while pursuing your right to compensation. We fight for you. An injury attorney knows how to get you the full measure of damages to which you are entitled.

Accident-related injuries

Being involved in a car crash can result in a broad range of injuries. A driver intoxicated by alcohol has a decreased ability to minimize negligence once control of the car is lost. This frequently results in serious injuries to other people on the road. We have experience handling injuries such as:

  • Brain injuries, including traumatic brain injury
  • Bruises, cuts and scrapes
  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Loss of limbs
  • Paralysis
  • Spine injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Wrongful death

When you are injured in an automobile or truck accident, you can pursue your remedies in a civil action. We show how the responsible party had a duty to drive safely but breached that duty to other motorists by driving while intoxicated. Experienced attorneys know how to properly present proof of blood alcohol concentration and other signs of impairment to show that the drunk driver violated duties to other drivers.

Recoverable damages in civil drunk driving cases

Because drunk driving accidents often involve more negligent conduct than other accidents, the consequences tend to be more severe. The more severe the injuries, the greater the damages the victims are entitled to recover. These damages include:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages or lost income from missing work or being unable to perform certain functions
  • Projected future medical or long-term care
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of ability to do certain household or domestic tasks

We can help you pursue compensation against the negligent driver, the applicable insurance company and any other liable parties.
