Drunk-Impaired Driver Accidents in Las Vegas
Those that drive under the influence (DUIs) are subject to severe legal consequences, but it doesn’t mean that DUI victims are properly compensated for personal injury or property damage. When the state prosecutes someone who has been charged with a DUI they are often focused on making an example out of those that they prosecute, as well as making sure that they are kept off the roads.
At Muslusky Law we are focused on securing the best settlement for victims of DUI accidents: especially for something which injury and damage could be avoided. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a drunk driving circumstance you are entitled to hold those at hand responsible for their actions.
To learn more about your case and provide you with the best opinion on going forward we provide free consultations. Feel free to give us a call to have your questions answered and to set up an appointment for an in-depth evaluation of your case.
Injury and Damages that Drunk Drivers are Liable For
If you miss work because of the injuries you sustained during an accident, you are entitled to a settlement that will cover lost wages. Not to mention any hospital bills, lost time recovering, and property damage.
In the event that a family member has passed away due to a drunk driving accident, the estate is also entitled to funeral costs and lost companionship for a wrongful death. An experienced lawyer can take notes of the damages incurred and determine how much the offending party is liable for.

Our legal experience spans both drunk driving cases as well as drug-impaired cases, even those caused by being under the influence of prescription drugs. There are certain medications which one has to take responsibly with the knowledge that they shouldn’t drive and take them. Failure to heed such warnings definitely makes one liable for being impaired and driving, especially if it results in an accident that could have completely avoided.
In the United States almost 40% of traffic-related deaths occur due to the impairment caused by alcohol. This amounts to about 36 deaths across the nation, every day, which are incredibly traumatic for friends and family members. In the State of Nevada, 33% of fatal accidents are caused by someone with a blood alcohol higher than the legal limit of .08.
