Car accidents involving sober drivers can be devastating enough, let alone those involving drunk drivers. Alcohol makes drivers fatigued, distracted, and have a slower reaction time. These impairments result in many accidents each year that are often fatal, leading victims to seek financial compensation for their losses.

The thought of pursuing civil litigation while recovering from your injuries may be intimidating. But with the right legal advocate on your side, you could recover the justice and restitution that you deserve. Contact our Albuquerque DUI lawyers at Begum & Cowen Injury & Accident Lawyers for a no-cost, risk-free case review.

Liable Parties in DUI Accidents in Albuquerque

Although you may assume the drunk driver who hit you is directly responsible for your accident, you’d be surprised to learn that other parties could have indirectly contributed to your crash.
