Question:

Do I need an attorney to prove drunk driver accident liability?

Answer:

In talking with a client who was hit by a drunk driver the other day, one of the questions they had was, “Is the drunk driver responsible for the accident?” There’s not an easy answer to this, although most of the time the answer is yes. Drunk Driver Accident Liability Just because a person is drunk, doesn’t automatically mean that they’re going to be responsible for the accident. It’s still necessary that the victim of the drunk driver prove their case. It’s very important that you hire the right attorney to help you with your drunk driving accident and injury.
Thinking that you don’t need an attorney because the person was drunk leaves you at the mercy of insurance companies that are going to have attorneys and professionals who are trained in the business of minimizing claims. They may even suggest that, despite the fact that this driver was drunk, you had something to do with the accident and it was somehow your fault. Make sure that you hire an appropriate attorney for your drunk driving case so you don’t end up in that situation.
