If you were injured by a drunk driver, it is quite possible you are dealing with serious injuries. It is also possible that if your loved one was hit by a drunk driver that you are now dealing with the tragedy of a wrongful death claim. Drunk driving accidents — and even drunk boating accidents — bring up very difficult emotions. It is not uncommon for drunk driving victims to experience sadness, grief and anger.

Talk To Us As Soon As Possible
It is imperative to speak with an attorney as soon as possible after the DUI accident, DWI accident or BWI accident.
In addition to the personal injury claim, there may be a criminal component. Your attorney will need to talk to the district attorney and the state trooper. Your attorney will need to examine evidence pertaining to the DUI/DWI/BWI case. Once the criminal case is disposed of, evidence can be released or "shuffled away." When you involve an attorney soon after the accident, this important evidence — such as BAC samples — can be preserved.
As an injured person, you may be entitled to punitive damages because the negligent person caused the event, while impaired by alcohol or drugs.
In addition to drunk driving accidents, we handle drunk boating accidents that occurred in waters such as the Core Sound, Bogue Sound, the Neuse River and surrounding areas. As with DUI/DWI accidents, it is imperative to involve an attorney as soon as possible to ensure that evidence is preserved.
We represent drunk driving accident victims on a contingency basis. That means that you will not have to pay anything for our time unless we get compensation for you.
