We Want to Support You
After involvement in a drunk driving crash, you likely have a lot on your mind. You may be wondering what the first steps to take are, or if you have taken appropriate action so far. Car accidents are stressful enough. If an impaired driver causes an accident, it can be much more tragic. The damage can be worse, and the injuries may be more severe. No matter what the aftermath of this accident looks like for you, you should not feel as though you need to prioritize legal matters and put your health and recovery second.
We may be able to handle every aspect of your case. While you focus on healing, we will do what we do best. Once you discuss your case with one of our representatives, you will be connected with one of our drunk driving accident lawyers. They will want to know the details of the accident and review and valuate your damages. Your lawyer may be able to identify the liable party and communicate with them, their lawyer, and their insurance company so you do not have to.
If the insurance adjuster we speak with refuses to agree to a reasonable settlement, we may take your case to court and continue to fight for you there. Any auto accident is unexpected and can upend your life. You may be unable to return to work for a while due to your injuries, or you may be unable to carry out the same tasks at work that you could prior to the accident. You may be able to recover lost wages or receive compensation for lost job opportunities.
