Charleston Lawyers for Drunk Driving Accident Claims
Charleston Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers
Motor vehicle accidents can occur for numerous reasons, including speeding, distracted driving, reckless driving or even driving while intoxicated. Different factors — such as the speed and type of vehicles involved — can directly influence the severity of the injuries. No matter the cause of your accident, it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced West Virginia personal injury lawyer. At Freeman & Chiartas, our accident attorneys understand the devastating injuries that can result from a car accident. Distracted drivers allow their attention to be pulled from the road and will often drift into other lanes or drive through an intersection without stopping.
Distractions can include:
- Personal grooming
- Talking on a cellphone
- Checking email
- Manipulating a navigation system
- Talking to passengers in the car
- Reading a map
- Adjusting mirrors while driving
Any activity that pulls a driver’s focus from the road, even for a fraction of a second, can have disastrous results. If you or a loved one was injured in an accident caused by a distracted driver, schedule a free consultation at our firm as soon as possible.
Drunk Driving Accidents
Any driver who has his or her perceptions altered by drugs or alcohol can cause serious, even fatal accidents. A drunk driver will have his or her reaction time slowed and perception of the surroundings blurred. Drunk drivers will often drift into oncoming traffic, fail to stop or yield at an intersection, fail to leave a safe stopping distance, or change lanes without looking. If you have been injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver, we will fight to recover the full and fair monetary compensation you are owed for lost wages, medical bills, property damage, and pain and suffering.
