FIGHTING FOR NEW MEXICO DRUNK DRIVING VICTIMS
If you were injured in an accident with a drunk driver, then it is likely that that driver is going to face criminal penalties, which can be harsh. However, these criminal penalties are focused on punishing the offending driver, and not compensating the victim. Fortunately, drunk driving victims may be able to seek compensation through a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. These measures may be taken even if the driver isn’t convicted of a DUI criminally.
Driving while under the influence of alcohol lessens a driver’s decision-making ability and reaction time. This means that accidents involving a drunk driver can often have more severe consequences than a typical auto accident. Injuries from drunk driving accidents can be devastating, resulting in traumatic brain injuries, severe burns, and broken bones and lacerations. Aside from painful and difficult to recover from, these injuries can also be expensive. At Zinda Law Group, our attorneys will assist you in seeking maximum compensation from the responsible party or parties while making the process as painless as it can possibly for you.

HOW TO FILE A CLAIM AFTER AN ACCIDENT WITH A DRUNK DRIVER
After your accident with a drunk driver, there are a few steps that need to be completed in order to begin to seek compensation for your injuries.Speak with an Attorney
Car accidents, especially those involving a drunk driver, can turn your life upside down in a moment. Consulting with an experienced drunk driving injury attorney can help put your mind at ease as they may be able to advise you of your options and give clarity on what your next move should be.
2. Research and Investigate
After you have picked an attorney to work with, they may be able to begin researching and investigating the facts of your case. In a drunk driving claim, this can include the driving record of the other party, any photo or video evidence that may be available, and statements given to the police.
3. Negotiate a Settlement
Personal injury claims very rarely go to trial—most settle far before they reach that point. If the other driver has been convicted of a DUI, then they may be even more likely to settle. Your attorney can work with you at this stage of the proceedings in order to advise on whether a settlement offer gives you fair value for your injuries.
