Yes. Although drunk drivers face criminal charges for violating the law in Nevada, they can also be sued personally by anyone they harm while driving drunk. Drunk driving is a choice. If a driver gets behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol or drugs and causes an accident, that driver can be held civilly liable for his/her negligence. At Harris & Harris Injury Lawyers in Las Vegas, Nevada, we sue drunk drivers who have harmed our clients all the time.
