How are drunk driving accidents different from other car accidents?
Drunk driving accidents are similar to other types of auto crashes. Both can result in serious injuries and long recovery periods. However, DUI crashes are different in 2 important ways. First, once it is proven that the responsible party was driving under the influence, this act constitutes negligence per se. This means that duty and breach of that duty have been established, leaving only causation and harm to be decided. Second, once gross negligence has been proven, the jury can return a verdict for “punitive damages,” which are damages levied to punish the responsible party(s) and discourage others from behaving similarly. Punitive damages only apply if the defendant acted intentionally or with gross negligence. A victim injured in a drunk driving accident is far more likely to receive punitive damages than a person injured in a car accident where alcohol or drugs is not involved, especially if a qualified Plano DUI accident attorney is representing the victim’s interests.
