DWI / Drunk Driving Victims
Raleigh DUI Accident and Personal Injury Attorney
According to the law, all drivers must exercise “reasonable care under the circumstances.” A failure to use reasonable care is considered negligence. When that negligence is caused by a drunk driver, you need legal representation.
Pressure from the Insurance Companies
Following the accident, the drunk driver’s insurance company will push for a fast and inexpensive settlement. Before you provide them any information or sign any documents, contact a North Carolina personal injury attorney at Wilson Williams Law, If you are a drunk driving victim involved in a DWI accident, you are entitled to recover for the injuries that you suffered because of the impaired and negligent driver’s actions. Those include:
• Tax, title, and licensing fees;
• Rental car expense or reimbursement of the same;
• Medical expenses for the past and future;
• Lost wages in the past and future;
• Pain and suffering for the past and future; and
• Your rights to medical care and maybe punitive damages.
Our main priority in representing people who have been injured in DWI accidents is to make the victim whole again, which means getting the victim back to the condition they were in before the accident occurred. Someone driving under the influence is not only operating a vehicle negligently, but illegally. As the drunk driving victim, you may be entitled to punitive damages above and beyond the other damages you suffered from the DWI accident.
We regularly assist our clients in getting them the proper legal documentation to assist in the financial recovery for their injuries as soon as possible. In many cases, we are able to use our local contacts to expedite treatment and expedite for the provision of medical care.
