Nobody ever thinks they will get hit by a drunk driver, but we know that too many people make the choice each day to get behind the wheel impaired. These incidents are unpredictable and there may come a time when you need a Toledo DUI accident attorney.

At Paulozzi LPA Injury Lawyers, we are here to help if you or a loved one have been injured due to the actions of a driver impaired by alcohol or drugs. Let us get to work on securing the compensation you need.

What We Know

In Ohio, we have pretty strict laws against drinking and driving. Along with efforts of law enforcement, we have had strong PR campaigns warning of the dangers of drinking and driving.

But this has not stopped the problems.

Despite our best efforts, we know that far too many people make the choice to get behind the wheel after they have had too much to drink. For the latest reporting year in Ohio, we know that there were more than 1,000 vehicle crash deaths.

  • Did you know that, according to the state highway patrol, 405 of the total traffic fatalities were the result of what is called “operating a vehicle impaired” or OVI?

Those numbers are staggering, but we need to remember that the people who survive crashes caused by alcohol-impaired drivers are often left dealing with serious injuries.

Crashes involving alcohol-impaired drivers are usually worse than regular crashes because these drivers usually travel recklessly at high rates of speed and rarely slow down before an impact. Not only are other drivers and passengers at risk, but so are motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians.

It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries in the aftermath of these crashes:

  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries

Each of these injuries can cause long-term damage to a victim. In many cases, a victim will amass medical bills well over a hundred thousand dollars. In many cases, they will lose their income while they recover, taking away the money they need to support themselves and their families.

Will the insurance companies take all of this into consideration when determining a settlement amount?
