Common Questions AboutDriving Drunk Accident Cases
THE INSURANCE COMPANY VALUES a DWI auto accident differently than other car accidents. The potential for a big jury verdict is real when the other vehicle driver gets arrested for drunken driving. Punitive types 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. That is a mistake.
There is no question that the better your attorney, the better your odds are for recovering maximum compensation. Finding 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. If your case is serious, you will want an experienced attorney working your case and not staff.
Finally, make sure you have confidence in the attorney you choose when you meet with them. Your first impressions are of the attorney you are considering are usually accurate. Don’t hire a high-volume lawyer for a serious case.
There is no magic formula for valuing each case. There are many factors involved in evaluating the personal injury caused by a drunk driver. Essential elements include objective findings from your doctors. The total amount of the medical bills, lost wages, available insurance, and the attorney’s reputation handling the case.
Because of the potential for punitive damages, drunk driving cases are valued higher than a typical car accident.
