Drunk Driving Accidents

DWI and DUI convictions typically result in fines and even jail time for the individual, but what happens if this negligence also causes an accident? If you have been involved in a traffic incident caused by a drunk driver and are able to prove it, you may be able to claim damages to compensate for your or your family members’ injuries, emotional distress and /or death.

DWI / DUI cases are particularly complex because they often require both scientific, as well as legal, expertise.

We will fight to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve so you can focus on recovery.


Injured parties may be able to receive compensation for past, present, and future medical bills, lost wages from time off work, diminished capacity to earn, and past and future pain and suffering.

Punitive Damges

In some instances, Kentucky law ALSO allows juries to award punitive damages.

Punitive damages are meant to punish behavior that is intentional and/or grossly negligent to dissuade others from the same behavior.
