A drunk driver injured four children in Mesquite, Nevada over the weekend. According to Fox 5 News, police arrived at the scene of the accident where bystanders were forced to physically restrain the driver as he attempted to flee (the full article is available here). Fox 5 reports that the man struck two vehicles that were parked along a curb. The children who range in ages between 1 and 5 years old were transported from the scene for treatment. One child had to be airlifted to Las Vegas due to the severity of her injuries. A 33 year old Mesquite resident has been detained on suspicion of drunk driving, child endangerment, child restraint and other various traffic violations.
Accidents caused by drunk drivers are inexcusable. Fortunately the law recognizes that Drunk drivers are per se liable for the injuries that they cause. Unfortunately, many people who suffer injuries in alcohol related crashes never receive full compensation. Often times the at fault party has little to no insurance or the victim's Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage (UM/UIM) is insufficient to fully compensate for their injuries. This is especially true when a wrongful death or serious bodily injuries are involved.
People who have been injured by drunk drivers need competent legal representation. Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney can be a victim's best chance to receive compensation for their injuries. Victims of drunk drivers could be entitled to compensation for their pain and suffering, permanent disability, property damage, lost wages, medical bills and even punitive damages.
