Drunk driving poses a severe threat to the safety of others on the road. In Louisiana, individuals with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or higher are considered legally drunk and unfit to drive. Unfortunately, many people underestimate the effects of alcohol and make the dangerous decision to get behind the wheel. These drunk drivers put innocent lives at risk, resulting in serious injuries or even wrongful death.

We provide aggressive advocacy to help you pursue the compensation you deserve for your injuries and losses.

Under Louisiana state personal injury laws, victims of drunk driving accidents may be entitled to seek punitive damages in addition to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. However, proving that your injuries were caused by the alleged intoxication of the driver can be challenging, especially if there is a lack of breathalyzer or blood test evidence.
