Accidents Caused by a Drunk Driver

Wreck cases caused by a drunk driver can be more complicated to handle than other cases.  To get an insurance company to pay the full value of a case involving a drunk driver, additional work needs to be done.  In a case involving a drunk driver, you have to obtain the toxicology reports and other documents to prove that the driver was intoxicated.  You also need to look into the drunk driver’s background to see if they have driven drunk prior to hitting you.  Finally, a wreck caused by a drunk driver can trigger additional insurance coverage that may not be available in other cases.  If you are hit by a drunk driver, you need an attorney who knows how to handle these cases.  Insurance companies will often try to settle these cases as quick as they can before an injured person hires an attorney who knows the steps to take and the full value of these cases.
