Being hit by an intoxicated driver is scary, so speaking with an experienced Lawyer can make the biggest difference.
Evidence is important in order to prove negligence and establish your physical, emotional, and financial injuries. Once negligence is proven you may be entitled to compensation when you file a lawsuit against them.
Before you file a lawsuit know that…
Your personal injury coverage will pay for some medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses. The first step is to pursue an insurance claim and after that the other driver’s policy should be covering you too.
Sometimes the minimum policy limits might not cover all of your injuries.
It is important that you speak with a lawyer before you accept a settlement offer.
Many settlement offers by insurers are lower than what the case is really worth and you might be eligible for more.
EXAMPLES OF EVIDENCE.
If you are injured by an intoxicated driver, evidence is essential.
1.Your testimony might include smelling alcohol or another substance as well as seeing the person open a container with the substance. You might have heard the person slurring their words or speaking incoherently. The person might have had problems staying upright.
2. A copy of the police report. The police usually ask the suspect to perform a field sobriety test and note their observations.
In some cases the police will arrest the driver and this will be included in the report as well as any charges.
