Injuries Caused By Reckless Driving, Hit-And-Runs, And Drunk Driving Accidents

When drivers focus on other activities — instead of driving — they pose a danger to everyone on the road. If you were hit and injured by a reckless driver, you may feel as if your entire life is coming apart at the seams. Physical pain, emotional suffering and the financial strain caused by medical bills and lost wages can feel overwhelming. Let us take the weight off your shoulders.

At Hunt Law Firm, LLC, we have been advocating for accident victims for many decades. We will handle every aspect of your personal injury claim so you can focus on what matters most: your health.

Distracted Driving

Texting while driving, making phone calls, eating, applying makeup, driving while drunk — these are just a few of the many behaviors drivers engage in on a daily basis. If it takes your eyes off the road, it is a distraction, and it is dangerous.

If a distracted driver caused an accident and you were injured, you are entitled to compensation. However, the only way to maximize the compensation you receive is to work with an experienced injury lawyer.

Attorney Eric Kimble Hunt has a strong history of legal expertise in the courtroom. He builds strong injury claims that get results. He holds the record for securing the largest jury verdict in Macon County. He will do everything in his power to get you the compensation you need to pay for medical expenses, make up for lost wages, and reimburse you for your pain and suffering.

Hit-And-Runs

Those who hit other drivers, pedestrians or bikers and leave the scene put the physical well-being of those they injure in jeopardy. To discourage people from fleeing the scene, the courts often award "punitive damages" in hit-and-run cases.

Punitive damages differ from other forms of compensation in that they are meant to punish. In a typical injury case, victims are entitled to damages that compensate them for their loss. Punitive damages go beyond this.

Punitive Damages

As a society, there are actions we want to prevent. In some cases, such as accidents involving DUI and hit-and-run, the jury can send the defendant a message to not act in that manner anymore. The law allows the jury to do this in the form of punitive damages. Punitive damages are designed to deter the defendant from acting in a reckless manner again.
