Drunk driving is against the law in every state, but it remains a problem on our roads. When people drive under the influence of alcohol, the result is often a car accident that leaves people injured. But recovering financial compensation can be more difficult than you think. The car accident attorneys at Mike Slocumb Law Firm hold these negligent drivers accountable.
A claim against a drunk driver might seem simple, especially if the driver was arrested. Don’t be so sure. These drivers often deny responsibility and fight the charges. And insurance companies look for any reason to pay you as little as possible. They also have high-priced lawyers looking out for their best interests.
That’s why you need an aggressive and experienced attorney to fight for your rights. Our law firm knows how insurance companies operate. They may question how injured you really are. They may offer you a lowball settlement that does not even come close to covering the damages you have suffered. They may even try to put some of the blame for the accident on you.
We don’t put up with any of those tactics. Our legal team starts by investigating your accident to get the facts. We review all relevant documentation, interview witnesses and if needed, consult with experts who can help us understand what happened. We know where to look for evidence that proves the other driver was under the influence of alcohol and responsible for causing the crash that left you injured.
When insurance companies see that we have built a strong case and are prepared to fight them in court, they usually agree to enter settlement negotiations. Out attorneys are skilled litigators and are not interested in helping the insurance companies save money with a quick settlement. We are only interested in a resolution of your case that meets your needs.
If you were hurt in a drunk driving accident, you deserve financial compensation for all current and future medical expenses related to your injuries. You also deserve compensation for any lost wages you suffered because your injuries left you unable to work. We may seek compensation for other damages as well, such as pain and suffering.
We know that drunk driving accidents can have a significant impact on victims and their families. Our lawyers are focused on maximizing your compensation to help you through this difficult time and get your life back on track as much as possible. Our firm has recovered millions for clients over the years, and are dedicated to getting the best results we can for you.
It’s important to seek legal advice as soon as possible after being injured in a drunk driving accident. Each state sets a deadline for taking legal action (called the statute of limitations). So while it may seem like you have time, a stronger case can be built the sooner we can get started. The more time that goes by, the more likely it is that evidence will be lost or destroyed. And the memories of witnesses often fade with time.
