Drunk Driving Accidents are Deadly. They Deserve a Strong Legal Response.
On average, every two out of three people in the U.S. will be involved in a drunk driving accident or be injured by a drunk driver during their lifetime.* These accidents are sometimes just minor fender benders. But more often than not, they are devastating crashes that leave those involved with serious, sometimes even lifelong, injuries.
At Hay & Knight, PLLC, we recognize how serious these accidents are, and we fight so that those injured are compensated appropriately. From our Somerset office, we’ve helped clients throughout Kentucky get the legal help they need to cover their medical bills, lost wages, vehicle repair costs, and even punitive damages.
Pursuing All Aspects of a Drunk Driving Accident
In many ways, helping the victims of a drunk driving wreck can be similar to what we do for all of our clients that are involved in a motor vehicle accident. We work from start to finish to make sure you’re fairly and justly compensated, and that you’re not paying out-of-pocket for the expenses you accrue as a result of your accident.
However, in drunk driving cases, we know that not only have you been injured, but the other driver has broken the law and put you in serious danger in the process. In these instances, we conduct a thorough investigation into what occurred. We obtain lab tests and medical tests where necessary.
Where appropriate, we work to pursue punitive damages. In collaboration with the county or commonwealth attorney, we try to get justice for what occurred—not just civilly, but criminally.
These accidents often leave unsuspecting drivers and passengers with a range of serious injuries. We want to make sure that people are treated fairly and justly after.
No Recovery, No Fee
We do not charge our clients any attorney’s fees or associated legal expenses unless we win your case. Contact our lawyers today by calling 606-679-2214 or through the contact form. We have an office in Somerset, Kentucky, but are free to meet at your convenience.
