When a case involves a driver that was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, this is a case of criminal negligence. Although the evidence may be clear, it can be a shock to learn that the driver's attorneys are disputing the case, or that the insurance company does not want to pay a fair settlement, or has tried to diminish the injuries or the other damages. This is unfortunately, not uncommon.
At D'Alessandro & Wright, LLC, we are zealous advocates for the injured, and when we take on a case involving a drunk driving accident, we are prepared to fight for justice and full compensation. Innocent people pay the ultimate price for this act of negligence, often suffering life threatening or permanent injuries. The costs of care and treatment will be extremely high, and there is often a long period of rehabilitation, in cases in which the injured victim has survived. Families suffer deep sorrow and emotional upheaval when a drunk driver has caused an accident that resulted in fatal injuries. Any of these situations are tremendously upsetting, distressing and life-changing for all involved. It is extremely important that you have legal representation from a qualified attorney.
The outcome of your case depends heavily on the skills and experience of the legal counsel you have fighting for you. We take these cases very seriously and, when the firm accepts a case, you can expect that everything possible will be done to protect you, your future, your health, and your right to fair compensation for all damages.
The damages in a drunk driving accident will vary, based upon the actual situation. Some victims could be permanently disabled, and suffer traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, or an amputation, or permanent disfigurement. Any serious or catastrophic injury will naturally require extensive treatment and care, often for the lifetime of the injured person.
The costs of treatment often range into the hundreds of thousands of dollars within the first six months. The injured person may be unable to work, support the family, or engage in any of their normal life activities as before. All of these factors are evaluated when the claim or lawsuit is filed to recover damages. Both economic and non-economic damages are sought in every case we take on. In some cases, it may be possible to pursue punitive damages.
It is important that your case is evaluated as early as possible after the accident. You are advised to avoid any interviews by insurance company adjusters or lawyers without first getting legal representation. Your case demands justice, and our firm will be an aggressive advocate for you throughout the entire process. We are personally committed to our clients and to pursuing justice, and will fight for it in court when necessary.
