How much is an average drunk driving settlement?

There is no average drunk driving settlement because there is no average case. I can say that DUI cases do have tendency to command a premium over non DUI cases. In my experience this is somewhere between double and triple a non DUI case. The settlement depends on the actions of the drunk driver, medical expenses, lost wages, loss of future earnings, past/present/future emotional and physical pain and suffering, and punitive damages. A personal injury lawyer can evaluate the value of a case once medical treatment is concluded or maximum medical improvement is reached. The consultation with the lawyer should be free.
