Wisconsin drunk driving accident injures one victim

| Jan 16, 2014 | Drunk Driving Accidents

A man was arrested in Wisconsin after allegedly causing an accident that injured another driver. According to police, the man will face charges of operating while intoxicated causing injury, a felony. While this might result in the man serving significant time in prison and paying fines, it doesn’t help a person the victim of the accident.

Police said the man had a blood alcohol content of 0.276 percent, meaning he was more than three times the legal limit. This level of intoxication can severely impair a person’s ability to drive a vehicle. While this didn’t happen in the Hudson area, people can cause drunk driving accidents across the state and victims should understand their rights.

When a person is injured because of an alleged drunk driver, they might not find comfort in knowing that the person will be charged with a crime. This can do little to help the victim pay for medical expenses.

Medical expenses can sometimes result in a person being unable to pay other bills each month. It is unfair that a Wisconsin drunk driving accident victim should have to pay for their medical bills.

The man in this case said it was just a fender-bender. However, even fender-benders can cause a person severe injuries and result in a long recovery. An experienced personal injury attorney in Wisconsin can help a person understand their rights. They can seek compensation to help the person pay their medical bills and try to return to their normal daily life through recovery.
