Greenville Drunk Driving Accident Attorney
North Carolina DUI Accident Lawyer
Accidents and car crashes due to drunk driving or DWI (driving while intoxicated) are the unfortunate outcomes of drivers who think they are able to drive effectively when that actually isn’t the case. Innocent drivers and passengers suffer as a result – whether those passengers are in the drunk driver’s car or are in another car involved in an accident. You have every right to bring a civil suit against the drunk driver, which he or she will face in addition to criminal charges brought about by state prosecutors. A senseless act like driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs deserves to be punished.

Wrongful Death and Drunk Driving in North Carolina
When a drunk driver causes the death of another person, he or she will face either a felony or a misdemeanor charge, punishable by up to 24 months in state prison and fines of up to $4,000. DWI is also considered a “grossly aggravated factor” in a wrongful death case. In addition, the family of the deceased may be able to receive monetary compensation for burial costs, medical expenses and more.
