Drunk Driving - Greenville Drunk Driving Accident Attorney

Drunk driving is an extremely serious subject. When someone gets behind the wheel while they're intoxicated, the likelihood of them causing an accident that can seriously injure or even kill someone increases exponentially. Alcohol significantly impairs a person's ability to make safe choices and to react quickly and effectively if something goes wrong. This makes it extremely dangerous to drive while inebriated. Unfortunately, far too many people still do, and this endangers those around them. Drunk driving is a very large issue and hits close to home for an unfortunate number of people. This is why it's important to make sure that you have a lawyer who can help you figure things out in this difficult time.

Too many people know someone who was hurt or even killed in a drunk driving accident. These crashes always seem like even more of a tragedy than others because they just didn't need to happen. Especially with today's technology, there are so many alternatives to driving drunk. Calling a friend on your cell phone or even using an app to get a rideshare home can happen faster than you can walk into the parking lot, so there isn't ever an excuse to getting behind the wheel. This knowledge just makes accidents that do happen all the worse.

Injuries sustained in drunk driving accidents can range anywhere from minor bruising to severe injuries and even death. While we obviously never want to hear about any of these outcomes, we know that they do and we want to help. Any time someone is injured due to another person's negligence, there is a chance of compensation. Drunk driving accidents are no exception. We know that money won't solve everything, but it can certainly help the sudden medical bills and work toward replacing any lost wages that you may be suffering from while you are out of work as you recover. It may also mean the difference between you being able to actually rest and recover or going back to work too soon and possibly hurting yourself even more.

The key to getting the compensation that you deserve after being involved in a drunk driving accident is having a good lawyer. Wayne Hardee has decades of experience with these types of cases in  North Carolina and won't rest until you are compensated appropriately. If you were hurt because someone was driving drunk, give him a call. You need to be able to relax instead of worrying about your case!

Getting into an accident is never a pleasant experience. Even under the best of circumstances, an accident can at least mess up your plans for the rest of the day. Whether it's due to being on edge from the crash, calling your insurance company, or pain from the impact, crashes can really change the rest of your day. If you're lucky, you get to wake up the next day and go back to your normal routine. Unfortunately, this isn't what normally ends up happening. Most accidents that occur will cause people to lose at least a few days to pain and tasks that need to be dealt with. Sometimes, it's much worse than that.

Depending upon how severe the accident was, it's fully possible that your life is thrown out of whack for a few days at least. If you were seriously injured, you may even have to miss things such as work or other activities. When your accident impacts your ability to work, there is a domino effect of problems that get set into motion. If you're hurt, you can't work. If you can't work, you probably won't get paid. If you aren't getting paid, you probably aren't going to be able to afford the medical bills that were caused by the injury. It is a vicious cycle that is nearly impossible to get out of without some assistance.

While you may be able to get temporary disability due to your injuries, this also isn't a foolproof solution. The loss of income will definitely impact how someone reacts to their injury, and how hard they push themselves to get back to work. This can directly influence a person's recovery and can easily cause issues with it if they push themselves too hard to do anything quicker than their doctors say they should. This is when you definitely need to find a good lawyer.

If you were in a car accident that impacted your ability to work, give Wayne Hardee a call. With 40 years of experience as a lawyer, you can rest assured that he has the foundation and history to help you. Although it may seem impossible at times, Wayne can help get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries and the loss of income that was caused by your car accident.

Car accidents are never easy to move on from. Even the smallest fender bender can seem like it takes years to deal with insurance companies. Once you get into the possibility of injuries both from you and the other people involved, it can quickly become overwhelming. If a minor crash can be this complicated and confusing, it's no wonder why so many people are worried about getting into a serious accident. Not only do you often have to deal with expensive medical bills and the cost of replacing your car, but you will likely have to go to the hospital and stay at least one night. With the cost of medical care coupled with the lack of income after a crash, a hospital stay can easily be your worst nightmare.

When you are in a car accident, there are a few things that need to happen. The most important is a call to the appropriate first responders so that you and anyone else involved or even just in the area is given the proper care and protection. This will change depending on the specific situation, but may involve paramedics, police, and/or fire fighters. It can be difficult to stay focused during this, and it often means you miss something you're experiencing due to adrenaline. This means that you should get checked out and brought to the hospital so you can be cleared by a doctor once they can make sure that you are safe and well enough to go home.

If you are not able to go home due to your injuries, you will suddenly have other questions that need to be answered. Most of these will have to do with either arrangements at home, what will happen to your job, and how you're going to afford the medical bills. These last two are heavily tied together, as you can't afford anything if you lose your job because you suddenly can't come in and work. All of these questions can overwhelm you quickly, so you need someone on your side who can help.
