New Jersey Drunk Driving Accidents Attorney

Drunk driving is sadly a very common occurrence in the United States. When people carelessly get behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking, the results can be incredibly serious and damaging. These accidents can have devastating effects, including broken bones, contusions, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and lacerations. What’s more, drunk driving incidents account for about one fatality every hour in the US.

If you have been involved in a drunk driving accident, you may be eligible for compensation. The lawyers at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm have years of experience fighting for victims of drunk driving accidents and can help guide you through the process of dealing with this difficult situation.

Accidents in general can be very stressful, but when they involve a drunk driver, the legal matters become even more complicated. Luckily, you do not need to take on the legal process alone. The Todd J. Leonard Law Firm has professional lawyers who will protect your legal rights while you focus on recovery.

What to Do If You Have Been Involved in a Drunk Driving Accident

Car accidents can leave you shocked and scared. If you are involved in an accident, the most important thing to do is try to remain as calm as possible. While staying composed may be difficult, it is essential and can help you remember important details later on. Here are a few key steps to adhere to following an accident with a drunk driver:

  • Call the police as soon as you can
  • Take pictures of the damage, license plates, street signs, etc.
  • Seek medical care whether or not you think you are injured
  • Find an experienced personal injury lawyer
