It is difficult to imagine getting behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol, but some drivers simply refuse to give up this highly dangerous practice. Drunk drivers are among the most dangerous drivers on our roads, and they are involved in some of the deadliest accidents out there.
If you or someone you love has been injured by a drunk driver, don’t hesitate to reach out to 388CEDA today. We offer the comprehensive medical care you are looking for, and we can also recommend a dedicated car accident attorney upon your request that we do so for you.
Drunk drivers suffer physical impairments, sensory impairments (such as altered vision), and cognitive impairments, which make them a perfect trifecta when it comes to dangerous driving. Add diminished impulse control to this set of dangers, and the matter becomes that much more serious. Unfortunately, drunk drivers are out there, and they make our roadways less safe for all of us. Drunk drivers feature far too prominently in far too many fatal car accidents.
The damages you suffer as a result of a drunk driver can be overwhelming, and the basic categories of damage include:
Ensuring that your complete range of damages is well represented in your car accident claim can be critical to your ability to fully recover on your losses.
If you’ve been injured by a drunk driver, the most important first step that you can take is obtaining the medical care and attention that you need. At 388CEDA, we offer comprehensive medical care that includes highly effective pain management, board-certified neurosurgeons and orthopedic physicians, chiropractic care, and much more.
Another critical component of your recovery is obtaining the compensation to which you may be entitled, and an experienced car accident attorney may be able to help you with this, which is why we, at 388CEDA, can also recommend an experienced car accident attorney to you upon your request.
The injuries that are common to accidents caused by drunk drivers tend to be quite serious.
A broken bone is not only an exceptionally painful injury that can be very slow to heal but is also an injury that can lead to considerable secondary health concerns. When a broken bone fails to heal properly, it can lead to a lifetime of pain and even to physical disability.
The impact of serious car accidents, such as those commonly caused by drunk drivers, can lead to life-altering traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), which are typically caused by a blow to the head. TBIs, because they affect the brain, are as serious as they are unpredictable. Victims often suffer baffling emotional consequences that are exceptionally difficult to surmount.
Spinal cord injuries can happen anywhere on the spinal cord, and they are often the result of a jolt to the neck, shoulders, and/or back. These injuries tend to be as painful as they are physically debilitating. Victims often have to cope with considerable loss in their range of motion. Finally, if the injury severs the spinal cord, the victim must live with permanent paralysis (below the site of the injury).
The heat generated by the kinds of serious car accidents that are often caused by drunk drivers can lead to life-threatening burns, which are highly susceptible to dangerous infections and more. Burns often require long-term healthcare services. Further, if the burn is on or near the accident victim’s face, it can be permanently disfiguring.
The danger inherent to getting behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol is well known, and there is absolutely no excuse for drivers who engage in this often-deadly practice. If you or someone you love has been injured by a drunk driver, turn to 388CEDA for the comprehensive medical care and modern pain management that we offer.
