Yes, drunk driving is a civil case. It is a personal injury tort. If a person drives under the influence of alcohol or over the legal limit, and an accident results, the offender is legally liable for the harm that results.

There may also be a criminal case. However, the victim has the right to bring their own civil case for complete financial compensation. The damages available for the victim in a civil case are different and higher than what might be available as part of the criminal matter. In any case where drunk driving results in an accident, it is a civil case.

In a drunk driving accident case, you can win any of the following in compensation:

  • The cost of ambulance transportation to the hospital
  • Hospital expenses, including emergency and urgent care
  • Surgery costs, MRIs, scans, blood tests
  • Prescription costs
  • Follow-up medical care that continues until full recovery
  • Payment for the nature of permanent injuries, including scars
  • Compensation for the physical pain that accompanies injuries
  • Lost income immediately after the crash
  • Payments for long-term career changes because of injuries
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish

The purpose of drunk driving accident compensation is to pay the victim for all of their damages. When a crash occurs, the victims have losses that are financial and emotional. A successful outcome of a civil legal claim will pay the victim for those losses in full.
