If you live in North Carolina and you have recently been the victim of an accident caused by a drunk driver, you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed – and that is completely understandable. You may feel shocked, anxious, and unsure what steps to take to care for yourself in order to make sure you are able to pay your medical bills and get the care and compensation you need to move forward. You may have found our website because you are searching for a drunk driving accident injury lawyer who can help you fight for the compensation you deserve. If so, you’ve arrived at the right place, because at Clauson Law, that is exactly what we do.
In North Carolina, a driver is considered to be driving while impaired if he or she has a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 or higher – 0.04 in the case of a commercial vehicle. Driving while impaired is not only dangerous – it is considered a crime, and like any crime, it has serious consequences. While there are criminal consequences, victims also have the opportunity to file a civil claim to recover compensation and damages for their injuries – and that’s where we come in.

While these are common grounds for claims, a qualified attorney at our firm will be able to listen to your particular story and advise you as to the causes of action that may be available to you personally.
