Injured in a Drunk Driving Accident?

Newport News Drunk Driving Accident Attorney

Hit by a Drunk Driver? Contact our Virginia Car Accident Attorneys

Despite the well-publicized dangers, drunk driving is still a serious problem throughout the country. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for drunk drivers to collide with drivers or pedestrians due to delayed reaction time or blurred vision. If you or a loved one was injured in an auto accident caused by a drunk driver, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with a car accident lawyer at our firm today.

At Heath, Overbey, Verser & Old, P.L.C., our Newport News drunk driving accident lawyers have extensive experience fighting for monetary compensation on our clients’ behalf. Find out what we can do for you!

Depending on the severity of the accident, we will seek compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering. In these situations, not only does the defendant have to pay compensatory damages, but he or she may also be ordered to pay punitive damages to punish the drunk driver for his or her conduct, especially if the accident resulted in the wrongful death of another person. Schedule a consultation to learn more about your legal rights.

Hold the Intoxicated Driver Accountable

Most people equate impaired driving with alcohol, but there are many other intoxicants that can impair an individual's ability to safely drive. Substances such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin or powerful prescription drugs can limit a driver's reaction time or impair his or her perception of the road.

If you were severely injured in an accident caused by the negligence of another driver, it is important that you speak with a drunk driver accident attorney. We can provide an honest assessment of the strength of your case.

We Understand the Science and Technical Aspects of Handling Drunk Driving Accident Cases

Just like our attorneys have gained valuable experience in representing insurance companies, some of our attorneys have also gained experience in defending drunk drivers. What does this mean for your personal injury claim caused by a drunk driver? Stated simply, we understand the science and technical aspects of drunk driving and just like we use those skills to defend someone charged with drunk driving, we will use those very same skills to pursue a personal injury claim arising out of a drunk driver’s wanton disregard for your safety resulting in your injuries.

We understand the science of breathalyzers and field sobriety tests. We will also investigate every avenue regarding the physical and medical impact of intoxicants on the drunk driver at the time of your collision.
