Pedestrian hit by suspected drunk driver


Most Denver residents know that drunk driving is an action that is totally preventable. When someone chooses to drive after drinking, he or she runs the risk of injuring not only himself or herself, but others, as well. A recent accident highlights what can happen when a person is involved in a drunk driving accident.

A pedestrian was found lying in the street in Wheat Ridge on Sunday night. The victim was found near the intersection of Tabor Court and 38th Ave and was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. The driver who hit him has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and vehicular assault.

When a loved one is hurt or killed in a drunk driving accident, families can be turned upside down. These accidents are entirely preventable, making them even more tragic. Drunk driving accidents often cause serious injuries or even death. A family who has been affected by a drunk driver may want to discuss the accident with a legal professional who is skilled in handling personal injury cases. An attorney can investigate the accident surrounding the serious injury or death, visit the crash scene, interview witnesses and consult with experts. These steps can help determine who should be held accountable for the accident. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, funeral expenses, pain and suffering and other damages. It is important to hold drunk drivers responsible for their negligence so they don't hurt anyone else.

Families who have been affected by a drunk driving accident deserve justice. Holding negligent drivers accountable can help families recover compensation and move on with recovery.
