Drunk Driving Accident: More Than Negligence

Injuries in drunk driving accidents are often far more severe than in most car accidents. Because the drunk driver has poor reflexes, there may have been no attempt to lessen the impact by braking or turning out of harm's way.

The attorneys at Rittgers & Rittgers help drunk driving accident victims obtain fair compensation for their injuries. From offices in Lebanon, West Chester, and downtown Cincinnati, we serve clients in Butler, Warren and Hamilton counties and the surrounding areas of southwest Ohio.

Most car accidents are caused by negligence. A drunk driving accident, however, cannot simply be called an act of negligence. A person intentionally decided to drink and then drive, putting other people in danger.

For victims and their families, there are often, understandably, feelings of anger along with the concerns of how to recover from accident injuries or from the wrongful death of a loved one killed in a drunk driving accident.

Our personal injury lawyers also have extensive experience with criminal court drunk driving (OVI, DUI, DWI) cases. We understand the issues and the evidence. We combine that with our experience investigating car and truck accidents. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, our lawyers know the right experts to call for accident investigation and reconstruction.

Proving fault in a drunk driving accident is only one part of the case. You also need a lawyer who has an understanding of the medical issues involved. At Rittgers & Rittgers, we know that it takes significant financial resources to pay medical bills, lost wages and other expenses, including the need in many cases for future medical care.
