When an accident involves a drunk or intoxicated driver, the consequences can be serious. Lasting injury or even death is not out of the question. If you or a loved one was a victim in such an accident, you should consider speaking with an attorney.
Why Speak With An Attorney?
You may think that you will get justice through criminal proceedings but remember that criminal proceedings will not necessarily involve appropriate compensation for the victim. A personal injury lawsuit can allow you to seek compensation based on:
- Scope of your injuries
- The medical care you have been forced to seek
- Whether or not you are still able to work
And other factors.
Oftentimes, the insurance company of the at-fault driver will offer compensation to close out the process as quickly as possible. However, know that their proposals are often subpar at best. A lawyer who is experienced in personal injury law can guide you through the process and work toward getting you the maximum compensation available under the law for your circumstances.
