I have a civil injury case against a drunk driver. Are my own past DUI's admissible?

What if you have been hurt by a drunk driver- but you yourself had a DUI at some time in your past? Can the at-fault DUI driver use that against you in the trial of your case? There is not an easy answer to this question, but, probably not.
