If you were hit by a drunk driver, chances are that person was arrested. They’ll be charged with a crime, but you may be left to pick up the pieces of your life.
While a criminal conviction can help you get the justice you deserve, it likely doesn’t help you pay for medical expenses, recover lost wages, and get compensated for the pain and suffering the other driver caused you.
You do have options. You could go through the other driver’s insurance company and hope they pay you everything you deserve.
You can also hire an experienced personal injury attorney to represent you. They’ll fight to get you compensation for your medical bills and more–ensuring that you don’t have to suffer any more than you already have.

If you were injured by a drunk driver–even if they weren’t above the legal limit–you already have a good case. You need experienced drunk driving injury lawyers to help ensure you get compensated fairly.
Contact our offices today to learn how our attorneys can help you get the compensation you need to recover from a drunk driving accident.
If you were injured by a driver that was under the influence, chances are that they’ll be in some legal trouble. If they broke the law, their insurance company will often admit they were at fault and pay you compensation.
In instances like these, it can be difficult to get the insurance company to cough up the compensation you deserve–and need to recover.
If the driver was under the influence but under the legal limit, things get murkier. Their insurance may defend them or blame you for the accident.
In either of these scenarios, a DUI accident lawyer can help ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.
It all begins with a free consultation. At your case evaluation, our attorneys will listen to the details of your accident and go over any evidence you bring with you.
After accepting your case, our team of legal assistants, investigators, and attorneys will start gathering evidence to present alongside your claim.
Once we’re confident, we’ll file a claim. We file it first with the insurance company. If they fail to respond appropriately, we will then file the claim in court.
Our attorneys will work with the insurance company attorneys to find a settlement that will cover your injuries, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Most cases end here, but some go to trial.
Not every personal injury claim goes to trial. It’s pretty rare, and if your attorney is taking your case to trial you can guarantee that they think they can win you a better settlement there.
Whether your case ends with a settlement or a verdict, you’ll be awarded a settlement that will help you cover medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
Medical expenses are the leading cause of bankruptcy in the United States, and most of that can be attributed to accidents. We’ll fight to ensure you aren’t part of that statistic.
If you were injured and unable to work or are unable to work in the future, you should receive compensation for those lost wages to ensure you’re able to survive.
If the other driver was under the influence, there’s a good chance a judge or jury awards the plaintiff damages intended to punish the defendant for their negligence.
If you have to live with an injury for the rest of your life, you should be compensated for how it will affect your ability to earn a living or live a full life.
