Massachusetts OUI Accident Attorney
This accident is an unfortunate reminder of the dangers associated with impaired driving. Whether it is drugs or alcohol, OUI accidents often lead to tragedy. The worst thing about an OUI accident is that it is entirely preventable. The person who drives while impaired has made a conscious choice to get behind the wheel of a vehicle after consuming a substance which alters their mental and physical abilities. The result is increased danger and exposure to injury for all motorists on our streets and highways. OUI accidents occur with enough frequency that they have become a very serious problem over the years.
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. You need an experienced lawyer to assist with these issues.
