Dealing with the drunk driver is just the beginning
Drunk drivers often cause serious crashes, including devastating head-on collisions. Because the injuries sustained are often so severe, insurance companies fight hard to reduce the amount of compensation they pay to victims. Even if their client was charged with driving under the influence, they'll try to downplay the extent of your injuries. They may try to get you to go away quickly with a "lowball" settlement offer.
The police take drunk driving accidents seriously. But it's important to remember they don't work for you. Their job is to bring the drunk driver to justice, not to make sure you are fairly compensated. That's why it's so important to get your own advocate during this difficult time. That's why you should contact us right away.
We pursue all possible sources of compensation
Our attorneys will thoroughly investigate and pursue every possible source of compensation for your injuries. That includes the drunk driver's insurance company, of course, but there may be other sources as well. For instance, we may be able to pursue a "dram shop" claim against a bar or restaurant that served alcohol to the drunk driver.
We'll listen to your story and find out how your injuries have affected your work and your quality of life. And we'll fight for the full amount of compensation you deserve, including medical expenses, lost wages and other accident-related expenses. In drunk driving cases, we're often able to pursue punitive damages from the drunk driver. We know how to build a strong case and justify every penny we demand for you.
Insurance companies know how hard we fight for victims. Usually, they're willing to offer a fair settlement to avoid facing us in court. When they won't cooperate, we're prepared to go to trial.
