Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers
Experienced Kansas City Car Accident Attorneys
When you are the victim of a drunk driving accident, you are capable of charging the driver with a civil lawsuit in addition to the criminal charges. Understanding the difference is important— while the criminal charges take care of the perpetrator’s punishment, the civil charges are intended to deter others from driving drunk and to help the victims obtain a full measure of justice, to help them recover.
There are far too many drunk drivers on the road, and the Kansas City car accident lawyers of Sanders.Law are doing their part to put an end to it. Inebriated drivers should not only face penalties from the state, they need to be held accountable to their victims and understand exactly how their reckless behavior has affected another’s life.
If you have been involved in a car crash with a drunk driver, call (816) 844-6938.
How to Stop Drunk Driving
Every year nearly a million people are involved in drunk driving related accidents.
