OUI Accident Attorneys
We are saddened to hear of this fatal OUI crash in Shirley. OUI cases are troubling on a number of levels, but even worse when a death is caused. OUI driving is extremely dangerous to both the driver and all other motorists on the road who are put at unnecessary risk because someone chose to drive while impaired. OUI slows the driver’s reaction time and turns their vehicle into a weapon with which everyone else has to contend.
If you have been injured in a Massachusetts OUI case you are entitled to recover for your injuries including: pain and suffering caused by the accident, medical bills, lost wages from time missed at work and potentially punitive damages. Punitive damages are a special type of monetary compensation which are awarded in cases of extremely negligent or reckless behavior. Driving under the influence can be an example of this type of behavior and may support a punitive damage award if you have to take your case to trial. You need an experienced lawyer to assist with these issues.
