I was injured by a drunk driver. What can I do?

When you’re injured by a drunk driver, you’ve got multiple different rights. One right that you have is to be involved and to be informed by the prosecutor about what the state is doing, as far as the criminal charges are concerned. You’re going to have to stay on top of them, you’re going to have to make a lot of phone calls, but you do have that right, and you have that right to have your voice heard, and as far as a sentence or any kind of plea agreement or anything else with that drunk driver. You also have a right to a private cause of action, so whatever harm was done to you personally, if you lost your car, you lost your job, you have medical bills, those sorts of things you’ve got a right to get all of those losses covered by the drunk driver.
