Injured In A Drunk Driving Accident?
Of all the accidents that happen on our Louisiana roads, there may be none more senseless than those caused by drunk drivers. If these people would simply make the right decision and not get behind the wheel, the risk to innocent people would be completely removed. When they do get behind the wheel, however, not only must they answer to the law for the drunk driving violation, they must also answer to the victims they injure.
While an accident involving a drunk driver might seem like a clear-cut case, a number of important issues must be addressed. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in an accident that was caused by a drunk driver, it is critical that you have a Houma drunk driving accident lawyer with the ability to secure the full measure of damages available in your case.
Strong Representation To Get The Justice You Deserve
At the Law Offices of Brent J. Rhodes, I represent injury victims who face a lifetime of hardship because of a drunk driver’s careless decision. I fight aggressively to see that you receive the justice you deserve. I take the time to fully understand your injuries and how they have impacted your life. I seek full compensation for all your losses, including pain and suffering, loss of income, medical care, and any other considerations appropriate to your case.
Punitive Damages In Louisiana Drunk Driving Accident Cases
The Louisiana Civil Code allows injury victims to seek punitive damages in drunk driving cases. Punitive damages are separate from compensation for medical care and property damage. They are intended to serve as an additional form of punishment for the drunk driver. To collect punitive damages, it must be proven that the drunk driver acted with “wanton or reckless disregard for the rights or safety of others.” I will review your case and present the strongest possible argument to support your claim to receive punitive damages.
