The Emotional Impact of a DUI Accident

Many people assume that an accident caused by a drunk driver is similar to any other type of motor vehicle accident. However, victims of DUI accidents will probably disagree. In addition to any property damage or physical injuries suffered, victims of DUI accidents often suffer a significant emotional impact. This emotional reaction usually stems from the fact that the driver chose to drive after drinking. While other car accidents may simply be that—an accident—a drunk driver intentionally decided to put other drivers in danger by getting behind the wheel while intoxicated. An experienced DUI accident attorney in Coweta County will understand the unique emotional aspects of a DUI accident case, and can help you financially recover.

DUI accident victims often suffer serious physical injury. During their recovery time, they are constantly reminded of the wrong they have suffered by the DUI offender. Some victims even suffer permanent disabilities, therefore they will spend every day thinking about the drunk driver who injured them. Even if a victim suffers less serious injuries, they usually still feel deeply wronged by the drunk driver’s actions.

Reimbursement for medical bills and property damage will help an accident victim, and that is the type of compensation many attorneys seek. However, Shane Smith understands that you deserve to be compensated for your emotional injury, as well. Demonstrating the value of your emotional pain and suffering may be complicated, so you should always contact a knowledgeable DUI accident lawyer for assistance.
