St. Louis Personal Injury Law Firm Page Law Reminds Drivers to Be on the Lookout for Drunk Drivers this Graduation Season

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SAINT LOUIS, Mo., May 15, 2017 – With spring firmly upon us and the end of the academic year around the corner, the attorneys of St. Louis personal injury law firm Page Law are urging drivers to be aware of the risks posed by drunk drivers.

Every May, thousands of people in the area graduate from various academic institutions and often celebrate by throwing parties or heading out to bars and restaurants. As with most other celebrations in our society, graduation parties often involve the consumption (and often over overconsumption) of alcohol, which tends to result in more drunk drivers on the road.

People Injured by Drunk Drivers Are Often Entitled to Compensation

In the unfortunate event that you are involved in an accident caused by a drunk driver this spring, there is a good chance that you will be able to recover compensation for the losses that you sustain as a result of the accident. Here are some steps to take after an accident to make sure that you protect your legal rights:

Make sure that police respond to the scene of your accident. It will be much easier to prove that the other driver was intoxicated if he or she is evaluated by a law enforcement officer and formally accused of drunk driving.

-Do not offer to provide a statement to any insurance company or accept a settlement offer prior to speaking to an attorney.

-Be sure to undergo a thorough medical evaluation, even if you do not think that you have been seriously injured.

-Call a lawyer as soon as you can after the crash.
