Punitive Damages

Drunk driving is a serious crime, and juries typically do not look favorably on the offender. As a result, victims of drunk drivers may be awarded punitive damages for their injuries. Punitive damages are awarded in addition to medical expenses, lost wages, and compensation for pain and suffering. As the name implies, they are meant to punish the driver for their terrible behavior and to deter them from driving drunk in the future.

Dedicated Representation and Thorough Investigation

When you hire Craig Wilkerson, he will immediately begin an investigation into the circumstances of your accident. This may include obtaining police reports, taking photos of the accident scene, and interviewing witnesses. It is important to investigate the drunk driver’s condition at the time of the accident and determine if he or she has had previous DUI convictions. This evidence builds your case for a trial by jury.

Wrongful Death Claims

If a drunk driver took the life of your loved one, we can help you bring a wrongful death claim against the driver. At our firm, we understand no amount of money can make up for your loss. However, we can help you secure compensation to try to hold the wrongdoer accountable for the illegal actions.
