You can recover damages against a drunk driver even if you were partially at fault. If the accident was completely your fault, then I’m sorry, it was just completely your fault and you’re not going to be able to get somebody else to pay for something that was completely your fault. Let’s say it was half your fault and half the drunk driver’s fault, can you recover then? Yes, you absolutely can recover then.
You can recover at least half of whatever the amount of money is that the wreck caused you. Sometimes, if you’re dealing with a drunk driver, it can be 100%, but that’s kind of a tricky legal question. If you get into that kind of situation, you’re going to want to do some more research.
