Holding Drunk Drivers Responsible

When someone decides to drive drunk, that person is endangering the lives of everyone else on the road. If you have been injured in a car accident involving a drunk driver, our Richmond drunk driving accident attorneys will help you make the other driver pay for the damages you have had to endure.

Experienced Attorneys

At the law firm of Cravens & Noll, our lawyers have litigated many car accident and motorcycle accident cases involving impaired drivers. We have attorneys on our team who have handled drunk driving personal injury claims as for both the victims and as defense counsel for insurance companies. Because of this experience, we bring a thorough understanding of:

  • Police investigative methods
  • Technical devices used to determine blood-alcohol content (BAC), like blood tests and Breathalyzer machines
  • Litigation strategies used by insurance companies to defend against these personal injury lawsuits

In many drunk driving accident cases, we are able to use the criminal DUI conviction to benefit our personal injury case. We regularly send court reporters to the criminal trial to capture testimony. We talk with the police officers who investigated a case. We use all of our breadth of knowledge and our practical experience to our clients’ benefit.

There’s an obvious advantage to having an attorney fighting for you who has spent time on the other side. We know how the insurance companies defend against personal injury claims of this kind, so we know how and what it takes to win your case.

Punitive Damages in Virginia – Better Compensation

Every state is different in terms of the damage compensation awards available to accident victims. Because of the heinous nature of drunk driving accident, injury victims in Virginia are permitted to seek compensatory as well as punitive damages against drunk drivers. This generally means a much greater financial recovery for you and your family. Further, these damages are not protected by bankruptcy, so the defendant cannot avoid paying.

Reasonable Fees

If you’ve been hit by a drunk driver, of course you want to be compensated for your injuries. We also know that the last thing you want to do is spend most of your compensation money paying the attorneys who helped you obtain it. We understand this, so we do everything we can to keep case overhead down and provide our services in the most cost-effective manner possible for our clients.

We handle our cases on contingency, so if we don’t win, you don’t pay.
