Common Questions About

Driving Drunk Accident Cases

A DWI auto accident is valued by the insurance company differently than other car accidents. The potential for a big jury verdict is real when the driver of the other vehicle gets arrested for drunken driving. Punitive type of damages may also be a factor. An experienced attorney can only achieve the leverage of a potential jury verdict. Many people who try to handle their cases end up with much less without a top-rated attorney.

There is no question that the better your attorney, the better your odds are for recovering maximum compensation. To find the best attorney for your case requires research. The most important qualities to look for include, experience, reputation, and track record of winning big cases.

Look at your attorney’s peer-reviewed ratings, past clients with a drunk driving injury, and many years of experience they have with these types of cases. Be wary of “high-volume” practices as you may not receive the attorney input your case deserves. Often hectic law practices end up putting “case managers” and other nonlawyers in charge of the file. You’ll want to make sure they specialize in these practice areas and that it’s not some type of free case.

Finally, make sure you have confidence in the attorney you choose when you meet with them. First impressions are usually accurate as well as the case evaluation.

There are many factors involved in the valuation of the personal injury caused by a drunk driver. There is no magic formula for valuing each case. Essential elements include objective findings from your doctors.  The total amount of the medical bills, lost wages, available insurance, and the reputation of the attorney handling the case. Because of the potential for punitive damages, drunk driving cases are valued higher than a typical car accident.
