According to the law, all drivers must exercise “reasonable care under the circumstances.” A failure to do so is considered negligence. When that negligence is caused by a drunk driver, you need legal representation.
Pressure from the Insurance Companies
Following an accident, the drunk driver’s insurance company will push for a fast and inexpensive settlement. Before you provide an insurance company with your information or sign any documents, be sure to contact us for help.
If you are a drunk driving victim involved in a DWI accident, you are entitled to reimbursement for injuries you may have suffered as a result of an impaired and negligent driver’s actions.
These reimbursements may include:
- Tax, title, and licensing fees.
- Rental car expense or reimbursement of the same.
- Past and/or future medical expenses.
- Past and/or future lost wages.
- Past and/or future pain and suffering.
- The right to medical care and punitive damages.
Someone driving under the influence is not only operating a vehicle negligently, but illegally. As the drunk driving victim, you may be entitled to punitive damages above and beyond the other damages you suffered from the DWI accident.
