Who Can Pay for Your Injuries?
The first place to look for compensation for your injuries and lost wages is the insurance company of the driver, but it’s not at all unusual to find that drunk drivers are uninsured because they lost their insurance due to a previous drunk driving accident.
- If the drunk driver was uninsured, you may be able to bring a claim under your own auto insurance policy or umbrella insurance policy.
- If the drunk driver was served alcohol at a bar or a private home, you may be able to bring a claim against the person or establishment that served him or her.
- You may also be able to bring a civil suit against the driver him or herself to obtain money-and punitive damages for your injuries.
