Drunk driving is dangerous to everyone on the road. If you were injured in a car crash by a drunk driver, your injuries can have a severe and long-lasting effect on you and your family. It’s important to have an experienced attorney protecting you and fighting for your full compensation. Your attorney will also be able to protect and preserve all evidence to prove to the insurance companies that the at-fault driver was intoxicated.
It’s also important to have sufficient uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM) on your own car insurance policy, just in case you’re involved in a crash with someone who has little to no insurance available. For more information about UM/UIM coverage, please see our blog post on the topic.
