Our Morgantown office has secured numerous settlements and judgements in excess of one million dollars for our clients – and our goal is always to obtain maximum compensation for your losses.
We Pursue Punitive Damages for Victims of Drunk Drivers
Aside from being a criminal act in the state of West Virginia, driving while intoxicated/under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol may be considered an act of gross negligence, criminal indifference, or a willful, wanton, or reckless disregard for human life and safety, thereby opening the door to recovery of significant punitive damages. Although most insurance carriers do not include coverage for punitive damages in customer policies, these damage awards are payable from the at-fault party’s personal assets and are collectable as a means of deterring future reckless behavior. The experienced attorneys at Cranston & Edwards PLLC can assist with recovery of all compensation that you may be eligible to receive.
