If you or a loved one has suffered injuries in an accident involving a driver under the influence of narcotics or alcohol, our unwavering team of experienced lawyers can help you seek justice and ensure accountability for the responsible party’s actions.
Driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol is both illegal and dangerous. Impaired driving refers to the operation of a vehicle when your ability to do so is compromised to any degree by the consumption of alcohol or various narcotics including illegal substances and prescription medications. Should you or your loved ones find yourselves injured due to the negligence or reckless conduct of a driver under the influence, AAPC Lawyers will utilize their expertise to successfully advocate your claim and secure the compensation you rightly deserve.
DUI injury litigation is centered on holding impaired drivers responsible for their actions and providing compensation to the victims. An individual may be eligible to receive:
- Compensatory damages including lost wages, medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more.
- Dram Shop Laws: some jurisdictions in Ontario have “dram shop” laws that hold establishments, such as bars or restaurants liable for overserving alcohol to visibly intoxicated individuals who subsequently cause harm or injury. These laws can provide additional avenues for compensation in DUI Injury litigation.
Seeking counsel from experienced DUI lawyers is paramount as they can help you navigate the legal process and advocate for your rights. At AAPC Lawyers, our team possess the knowledge and experience to fight for your rights.
