Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers
Helping Colorado Drunk Driving Accident Victims
All car accidents have the potential to cause serious injury or death, but drunk driving accidents can be especially deadly. This is because drunk drivers have a tendency to speed, disregard traffic signals and cross center lines. Head-on collisions are common — and extremely dangerous.
If you are hit by a drunk driver, you need a lawyer who understands the special legal considerations of drunk driving accidents. At Mike Hulen, PC, our attorneys have the experience you need to hold the driver responsible for your injuries. Please call our Denver office at 303-932-8666. Your consultation is free.
What Makes a Drunk Driving Accident Different?
If you are the victim of a drunk driving accident, you will be contacted by many people: insurance companies, a criminal defense lawyer, police and the district attorney’s office. It is very important to have an attorney help you deal with these people. You do not want to make a statement that could undermine your case. We understand your rights and will work to protect them.
Because drunk driving is a criminal offense, we may be able to sue for punitive damages in addition to the compensation for your injuries.
People hit by drunk drivers may suffer severe injuries such as:
- Brain and spinal injuries
- Broken bones and amputations
- Wrongful death
What To Do After the Accident
If you suspect that the other driver is intoxicated, tell police at the scene. Seek medical care for your injuries and, as soon as possible, contact us so we can begin investigating the accident and handling inquiries for you.
