DUI Accidents may lead to civil and criminal penalties

Despite widespread awareness and efforts to combat drunk driving, drunk driving (DUI/DWI) in Hawaii continues to occur at far too high a rate. In fact, statistics show that drunk driving accidents are up from last year at this time. According to the Hawaii police department, as of today’s date, there were 28 fatal crashes, resulting in 30 fatalities, compared with 24 fatal crashes, resulting in 28 fatalities for the same time last year.

The consequences of drunk driving are severe. Drivers convicted of DUIs with injuries may face penalties and jail time. Further, they may be held liable in a civil court for damages. This may include medical bills, lost wages, and emotional distress. If you or a loved one has been injured in a drunk driving accident it is imperative that you contact an attorney immediately. A Hawaii car accident lawyer can work with you to ensure you receive all the compensation you are entitled to as a result of your injuries.

For more information, or if you or a loved one sustained injuries as a result of drunk driving accident, please contact the experienced Hawaii personal injury lawyers at Bostwick & Peterson, LLP for an immediate consultation.
