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.
