Alcohol and drug-related traffic crashes in Utah claim more than 100 lives and injure nearly 2,000 every year. The threat posed by intoxicated drivers may not be obvious until a crash strikes close to home. If someone has been killed or seriously injured in a crash, family members may consider seeking monetary damages from those responsible, but they will also need proper legal representation. InfiniTeam Legal Solutions offers this type of assistance.
The Risks of DUI
Despite a change in the blood alcohol level required for a conviction, driving under the influence (DUI) continues to be a threat in Utah. Those who cause accidents and harm others while driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs are subject to prosecution under this law, but they can also be held accountable through civil court action. In addition to the drivers themselves, the businesses that serve alcoholic drinks can be subject to civil action if their customers cause traffic accidents. DUI lawyers in Salt Lake City can provide assistance to those needing help in DUI cases.
Seeking Monetary Damages
The families of DUI victims who have died or have suffered major injuries may take legal action on behalf of their loved ones. Damages may be sought to pay medical bills or to compensate for wages lost as a result of an incapacitating injury. Additionally, state law allows for the awarding of punitive damages in DUI cases. In crashes resulting in fatalities, wrongful death cases seeking damages can be filed by surviving family members against the responsible parties. DUI lawyers in Salt Lake City understand the laws of the state and will provide the advice and guidance that is needed throughout the legal process. It is for these and many other reasons why these families should turn to the services available from InfiniTeam Legal Solutions.
