Do I Need a Drunk Driving Accident Attorney?
Regardless of what happens with the criminal case, you have the right to bring a civil drunk driving case. You can have a drunk driving civil case no matter what happens in the criminal case. Even if the state attorney declines criminal charges, or if they reduce the charges in a plea agreement, you can demand fair compensation through a civil claim. Under Colorado law, drunk driving victims are not limited to pursuing claims arising from the negligence of drunk drivers. They also have a right to sue for punitive damages designed to punish the drunk driver for willful, wanton, and reckless conduct.
Why Should You Bring a Drunk Driving Civil Claim?
However, in a civil case, you can claim every category of damages, such as physical and emotional suffering, lost income and future medical bills. As the victim, you’re in control of a civil claim. You decide what evidence to present, and you choose when to accept a settlement. Finally, the burden of proof in a civil case is better for the victim than it is in a criminal claim. You need to prove your case by only a preponderance of the evidence.
Our Colorado injury attorneys thoroughly understand how civil cases work. We know how to bring your case to maximize your compensation. With our team, you’ll know you’re claiming all of the categories of losses that you may have sustained because of the accident. We hold drunk drivers accountable as we work to get justice for our clients.
Who Can I Sue For a Drunk Driving Accident?
If the driver is a commercial driver, their employer may also be responsible for allowing them to be on the roads. A bar or restaurant may be responsible for overserving the driver. Even your own insurance company may be a party if they don’t pay you fairly under the terms of your policy. Our attorneys make sure that you claim compensation from all the appropriate parties.

"Corey and Ashley were very professional, communicative, and knowledgeable about every step of the case. We were hit by a drunk driver and didn't know what the next step was to seek medical attention in a way that wasn't a major expense to us. The attorneys here are super caring and got us a decent amount of money after paying off our treatment. I hope to never have to call a personal injury attorney but if I do it will be them." - Eric M
