The first step is always to get the medical treatment you need after calling 911. After that, call an experienced attorney. You will very likely need help in going up against the insurance company who want to settle your case for as little as possible. If you’ve been hit by a drunk driver, you may be entitled to the following:

  • Current and future medical expenses;
  • Lost wages;
  • Loss of future earnings capacity;
  • Pain and suffering; and
  • Punitive damages to punish the drunk driver and to deter others from drinking and driving.

In summary, you will not only be entitled to compensation for your injuries, medical bills and pain and suffering, you can also pursue punitive damages against the at-fault driver for choosing to drink and drive before causing the accident. Having a lawyer can make all the difference for your case.
