What Makes a Drunk Driving Accident Different?
Despite strict laws and heightened awareness campaigns, drunk driving is still one of the top causes of car accident injuries and deaths.
It’s illegal for people to drive with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent or higher. Illinois law also prohibits people from driving with open alcohol containers in their cars.
An accident involving a drunk driver isn’t like any other car accident:
- The drunk driver might not be the only person at fault. The person or business who served them too much alcohol could also have liability.
- In addition to typical car accident compensation for your injuries and property damage, you may also be eligible for punitive damages—as part of the punishment for the drunk driver.
Work with a personal injury attorney who knows the complexity of drunk driving accident cases, cares about you and puts your well-being first.
In other words, an attorney from Tuggle, Schiro, Lichtenberger & Themer.
You won’t pay anything for an initial evaluation to discuss your specific case and individual needs.

- Photograph the accident scene.
- Collect contact information for witnesses.
- Get an attorney.
