Drunk Driving Accident Attorney in Fayetteville, NC
Trying to negotiate with insurance companies on your own rarely leads to the outcome you deserve. Insurance companies are looking out for their bottom lines and they put forth a great deal of effort and resources to protect their clients. You need someone on your side putting forth that same effort to protect and advocate for you. Damages Awarded After a Car AccidentIf your case goes before a jury, your settlement may be decided based on economic and non-economic factors.
- Economic: Damages based on medical expenses, future medical costs, lost wages, and property damage;
- Non-economic: Damages are based on the pain and suffering a plaintiff sustained due to the accident and in particularly grievous circumstances, punitive damages may be awarded to specifically punish the defendant.
In 2021, we resolved a case involving a drunk driving accident victim in which the drunk driver was driving the wrong way and caused a head-on collision. Our client nearly died in the accident, spending weeks in intensive care. He was left with permanent injuries and disabled. Our investigation led to finding out that the drunk driver’s employer found him passed out in his car the day before the accident but took no action to report or discipline him.
We filed a case against both the driver and his employer who dragged the process out for two years while we prepared to go to trial. When they realized our law firm was ready to present a case to the jury, they offered a settlement amount that was 1300 percent higher than the initial settlement offer! This is just one example of how our experience, investigation, and dedication to our clients leads to favorable outcomes.
