Drunk driving: A choice that affected your rights in Iowa

Drinking and driving is a choice people make in Iowa. No one is forced to drive drunk, and most people are aware that doing so could lead to injuries and accidents on the road. When you're the one hurt by a drunk driver's poor decisions, that's when there's a problem and you need to look into your legal options.

You may be facing the death of a loved one or injuries that take weeks, months or years to recover from. You may be missing work, school or activities due to those injuries. Your situation is not unlike many other people's post-accident situations and like them, you deserve to receive the money you need to cover your illness, recovery and future well-being.

When you choose to look into suing or placing a lawsuit against a driver who was driving drunk, you have several options for how to proceed. With the right help, you can make the correct decisions about how much money you need, whether a settlement is good enough and if you feel you're being represented fairly throughout the case.

Compensation can be sought from the driver who hit you. It can also be sought from the insurance company he or she used. In cases where insurance wasn't being used, you may have an even stronger case for seeking compensation for a negligent driver's poor choices. Besides this, you may also be able to seek compensation and file a case against any bar or restaurant that served the driver to the point of being drunk while not preventing him or her from leaving the premises. Their negligence resulted in a serious accident, and that's not acceptable. You can visit our webpage on drunk driving accidents to learn more about the steps you can take to file your case.
