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. If you have been injured by a drunk driver and you are looking for an experienced and reliable personal injury lawyer who provides excellent personal service from the beginning of a case through trial and beyond, call Harris & Harris Injury Lawyers and ask us to get started on your case today.
