Fatal Drunk Driving Accidents

Fatal Drunk Driving Accident Attorney in Charleston, WV

We Hold Negligent People Accountable Throughout West Virginia

Because of a drunk driver, a spouse can lose a partner, a child can lose a parent, and our community can lose a valued member when there is an accident. At Warner Law Offices, PLLC, our lawyers take drunk driving very seriously. No one would want to be in the shoes of a drunk driver who has to face us in a wrongful death case.

While drunk drivers face criminal penalties in West Virginia, the criminal justice system usually does very little for the victims of drunk drivers. In our civil justice system, however, the drunk driver can be held financially responsible for the damage they caused.

Family members of the victim can seek compensation for:

  • Sorrow and mental anguish
  • Loss of income of the decedent
  • Loss of services provided by the decedent
  • Hospital expenses
  • Funeral expenses
  • Other damages caused by the death

West Virginia courts may also award punitive damages to address the reckless behavior of someone who chose to drive while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The drunk driver cannot avoid the financial consequences by filing bankruptcy.

Our lawyers will seek the maximum compensation for your family. We charge no attorney fees until we are successful in recovering compensation from the drunk driver and/or their insurance company.

Our attorneys will guide you through the legal steps of filing a wrongful death claim, including the naming of a personal administrator to represent the estate of your deceased family member.

For more information about your rights following the loss of a family member in a fatal drunk driving accident, send us a message or call (304) 449-3505.
