Drunk Driver Accidents in Utah Las Vegas, Henderson, Pahrump, or Reno

Drunk drivers face two types of liability for causing accidents that seriously injure or kill others. The first type of liability is criminal liability. Drunk drivers can face serious felony DUI charges, including DUI causing injury or death, and several years behind bars if convicted.

The second type of liability is civil liability. Individuals hurt in accidents caused by drunk drivers can bring personal injury lawsuits to recover compensation for their injuries. The loved ones of persons killed in accidents caused by drunk drivers can do the same with wrongful death lawsuits.
