It is terrifying to think that at any moment a drunk driver could seriously alter the lives of other people on the road. That terrifying thought is unfortunately a harsh reality. If you have been hit by a drunk driver in Utah, you deserve justice. No matter the seriousness of the accident, victims of drunk drivers need to be compensated for their injuries, damaged property, or loss of loved one.
At Swenson & Shelley, our Utah drunk driving accident lawyers are dedicated to protecting Utah residents and the Salt Lake City community. We also can pursue punitive damages on your behalf in order to deter similar behavior in the future.
Hit By a Drunk Driver in Utah | Property Damage
Approximately 65% of single-car accidents are committed by someone who is driving drunk. When a drunk driver collides with a fence, home, or any piece of property owned by another person, the owner of the property can seek compensation for the damaged caused. While it is not likely to receive extra damages for emotional suffering, property owners should at least have the property damage covered by the drunk driver.
Contact a Utah Injury Attorney if You Are Hit by a Drunk Driver
The only way to obtain justice if you are hit by a drunk driver is by going to court. Though the task of taking someone to court may seem daunting, it is important for victims to remember that they are entitled to seek justice and receive compensation for any harm that has come from a drunk driver. Furthermore, the legal process doesn’t have to be a difficult or upsetting experience. By hiring the right attorney from the start, victims will have someone fighting for them, so they do not have to deal with legal issues on their own. The compensation awarded to victims can help them to start rebuilding their lives and heal after a tragic situation, and nothing should stand in the way of that.
