We represent victims of drunk driving accidents

Last week this Tennessee personal injury legal blog discussed some of the very dangerous effects alcohol can have on a driver's body. Even a small amount of alcohol that does not rise to the legal limit of .08 percent of a person's blood alcohol concentration may impact a driver's ability to safely operate his vehicle. When individuals mix alcohol with driving, the consequences can be devastating.

While victims cannot always avoid collisions with drivers who are intoxicated, they do often have legal rights that arise from the losses they sustain. The negligent and reckless conduct of drunk drivers can make them liable for the damages their victims endure as a result of the accidents they cause. Even when a victim dies as a result of a drunk driving accident, their surviving family members may have rights to pursue compensation for the damages inflicted upon them by the loss of their loved one.

Though litigation may be the last thing on an accident victim's mind in the wake of their crash, victims of drunk driving accidents can benefit from working with personal injury attorneys to protect their rights and avoid the tolling of the statutes of limitation that may apply in their cases. A lawsuit based on negligence and the personal losses of a victim often cannot be delayed more than a few years after the accident, and victims who choose not to pursue their rights within the applicable time frames may miss their legal opportunities to do so.

After a drunk driving accident, victims first should take care of themselves and begin to recover. Then, those who are ready to understand their rights are invited to contact the law firm of Costner & Greene. Conveniently located in Maryville, our attorneys are available to discuss your case with you and help you seek compensation for the damages you have suffered.
