The state of Illinois takes drunk driving very seriously and strives to minimize these accidents as much as possible. Accordingly, drivers under the age of 21 with any trace of alcohol in their system will face the Illinois Zero Tolerance Law. Their driving privileges will be suspended for a period of time, depending on circumstances, as well as other serious penalties. The parents of these drivers can also be held liable as well if it was found that the drunk driver was drinking in the parents home if the driver causes a collision as a direct result of the alcoholic drinks they consumed while at their parents home.
While these laws and penalties and fines have scaled back on DUI accidents and collisions, there are still a staggering number of people who are injured every year due to the recklessness of those that insist on driving after drinking. In 2014 alone, 369 people were killed by drunk drivers. If you or a loved one was injured or killed by a drunk driver, you deserve an experienced attorney that will fight for you to make sure that you are fairly compensated. Some of the damages that the personal injury attorneys at the Law Firm of www.needaninjuryattorneyillinois.com can seek are:
- Medical bills incurred due to the accident
- Property damage

While no amount of financial compensation can return your life to what it was before the accident, the personal injury attorneys at the Law Firm of www.needaninjuryattorneyillinois.com want you to be taken care of in the long term. Insurance adjusters will be sent out to you quickly, but you must remember that while the quick cash is tempting, the fact of the matter is that adjusters are NOT looking out for your best interest. They are seeking only to give you the lowest dollar amount as possible and to settle your case quickly. This can be disastrous and not in your favor. It is an important decision to hire legal representation that will fight the big insurance companies to get you the kind of compensation that is fair.
