Holding Drunk Drivers Accountable For Accidents

Drivers who have been involved in car accidents caused by their own intoxication have problems even beyond the criminal charges and consequences they face. Additionally, they may be sued for damages by injured drivers or passengers who were involved in the crash.

This generally begins with the insurance claim. Two of the most common circumstances include:

  • Insufficient insurance coverage by the drunk driver: The other individual involved in the crash may sue the drunk driver to recover the additional resources to cover incurred medical and repair bills.
  • Denial by the insurance company: Often, either insurance company will attempt to deny coverage because the driver was intoxicated at the time of the accident. This generally depends on the level of intoxication of the driver. The legal blood alcohol content limit in West Virginia is .08. Greater intoxication can result in diminished insurance coverage.
