Drunk Driving Accidents: Compensation and Justice
Sanford Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer
Statistically, drunk drivers are the cause of a significant percentage
of the serious or fatal
car accidents in the state, including the area of Sanford. In a recent year, over 50,000
individuals were arrested in the state for operating a vehicle while under
the influence of alcohol, and were the cause of almost 400 fatalities.
These drunk drivers are likely to be speeding, swerving, driving the wrong
way on streets or highways, and are terrible danger to other innocent
drivers and their passengers. If you or your loved one has been injured
or killed in an accident with a drunk driver, it is imperative that justice
is served. This includes the matter of seeking compensation for all damages.
At Doster, Post, Foushee, Post & Patton, P.A. - Trial Attorneys,
our legal team has extensive experience in
personal injury law, and is prepared to evaluate your case. We are highly professional,
committed and prepared to fight for justice for the injured in cases in
which a drunk driver has been the cause of an injury accident.
The Costs of Treatment in a Drunk Driving Accident
Those who have been fortunate enough to survive a serious auto accident
may need months or even years of treatment. The costs of medical, rehabilitative
and nursing care soon start piling in. The negligent driver must be held
accountable, and be forced to pay for all damages. This is when our legal
team moves into action. There are a great number of cases that have serious
problems, including issues such as an uninsured or underinsured driver,
a multi-vehicle accident with several parties holding liability, including
any bar or restaurant that served the alcohol to the driver. Each drunk
driving injury case requires a careful analysis to determine how to file,
who to file against, and how to best protect the rights of the injured.
Our professional personal injury law firm is recognized as accomplished,
successful and dedicated. We are interested in helping our clients to
get justice, in financial terms.
These cases can become complex, and if the claim is not paid fairly, and
in a timely manner, it may be necessary to bring the case to trial for
a verdict, whether from your own insurance company (in cases of an uninsured
driver) or the responsible parties. Many lawyers may prefer not to take
a case to trial. We are not concerned about moving forward to trial when
this will best serve the interests of our client or the family of person
who was killed by a drunk driver. We believe that our clients deserve
to be compensated at a level that reflects the damages they have suffered.
Our firm is steadfast in demanding a settlement that is measured against
all of the economic and non-economic damages. We are not interested in
wrapping up a case with an unfair settlement; we are willing to proceed
into court to get justice when this will best protect the rights and interests
of our clients.
