Homestead Hit by a Drunk Driver
Even though the message about drunk driving has been widely circulated through media, driver’s courses, and enforcement campaigns, some people still make the decision to drink and drive. Flaxman Law Group legal staff believe that when someone makes the decision to recklessly drive after drinking, they should be held legally accountable to the fullest extent of the law for any injuries and damages that they cause. If you have been injured by a drunk driver, you do have rights and options. Contact Flaxman Law Group to arrange for a free consultation to review your options with a personal injury attorney.Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney in DUI Accident Cases
Many people who have been hit by a drunk driver in a car accident in Homestead or another community assume that they have an open and shut case. After all, drunk driving is against the law, so they assume that their insurance company or the other driver's insurance company will be more than happy to pay out a generous sum for their injuries, car repairs, and other costs. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
Even in a seemingly open and shut drunk driving case, at-fault drivers will sometimes challenge sobriety tests, blood-alcohol test, and field tests. They may work with defense attorneys in order to fight the charges against them and in order to limit liability. Worse, in many cases insurance companies offer lower amounts to victims because the injuries in these types of cases tend to be severe and insurance companies can often save money by resolving claims quickly and inexpensively.Will You Get Fair Compensation for Your Injuries?
Unfortunately, this leaves victims of DUI accidents in a difficult situation – they may be severely injured, unable to work, and compensation may only pay for a small fraction of these injuries. Drunk driving crashes and hit and run accidents in Homestead often result in insurance disputes, simply because getting fair compensation in these cases can be challenging. In many cases, injuries are undervalued and victims are left to make up the difference with their own savings. This is hardly fair – and it does not have to happen to you. Fighting for justice and compensation in your case is your right.
