Wisconsin Drunk Driving Injury Lawyers
Wisconsin is the only state where a first drunk driving offense is not a crime. It is merely a traffic ticket. Although we have the highest rate of drunken driving in the nation and almost 45% of all traffic related deaths are alcohol related, the legislation is unwilling to follow along with the other states.
In 2006, MADD started the campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving and we experienced a 25% drop in drunken driving deaths nationwide through 2011. Unfortunately, in 2012 that percentage has risen about 10%. It is expected to rise as the economy improves.
We believe that the aggressive pursuit of punitive damages from drunk drivers for the harm they cause is an effective deterrent. Punitive damages are intended to punish the driver financially and are most often not covered by insurance.
Our experienced Milwaukee personal injury attorneys have taken these cases to trial and in Racine County recovered a punitive damage verdict of $350,000 against a three-time drunk driver.
If you or a loved one was the victim of a drunk driver, it is important to hire an experienced and skilled personal injury law firm to protect you and help you obtain the financial compensation you deserve.
