What if I am hit by a drunk driver?
If you are hit by a drunk driver, there are a few speculations that are looked at when reviewing the case. People wonder if their insurance will cover for their pain, which is a valid concern. However, more goes into this process. Police have to look at every angle of the case to see if the drunk driver was the only one in the wrong, or if both drivers contributed to the accident. However, if you are involved in a DUI accident, actions will be taken regardless.
At the scene of the accident, make sure you still gain as much information from the driver as possible. When it comes to court, do not back down from what you believe is a fair compensation for any injuries you received from the accident. Whether they were driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving under the influence (DUI), the right charges will be pressed against them.
