    Have you or a family member been injured by a person under the influence of drugs or alcohol? Unfortunately, drunk driving accidents are all too common. Alcohol is present at many restaurants, special events or other functions, which means there’s always a risk of someone getting behind the wheel after drinking. Intoxication may cause drivers to swerve, react slowly or even fall asleep at the wheel. If you’ve been injured by a drunk driver, it’s important to work with an experienced law firm that can fight for the compensation that you’re entitled to receive under the law.

  • Legal Compensation for Drunk Driving Victims

    There’s a reason that drunk driving is illegal – it makes the roads incredibly dangerous whenever anyone gets in the car after consuming alcohol. If you’ve been hit by a drunk driver, you likely experienced severe physical injuries and emotional scars that could result in PTSD, night terrors, and other serious mental problems. Bucklin Law Office fights for you and may be able to collect compensation for the following:

    • Pain & Suffering
    • Lost Wages
    • Medical Bills
    • Loss of Future Earning Power
    • More…
  • Hit & Run Accidents

    Many times, drunk drivers are under the false impression that nobody will know if they leave the scene of the accident. This is called a hit and run, and it’s another serious crime that causes physical and emotional stress for people and families all over Central IL.
