When you’ve been in a car accident where the other driver was under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, you have a good shot at getting compensated for any injuries that resulted from the crash. You will need to file a personal injury lawsuit against that individual. With the help of a professional personal injury attorney in Kentucky, you can recover the compensation that you deserve. This lawyer can determine whether or not a settlement with the other driver’s insurance company will suffice or if a lawsuit whether uninsured, underinsured motorist, or another lawsuit is the right course of action.
If there was a DUI conviction associated with the case, then you’ve got a great case. This is because insurance companies are well aware that if a lawsuit against their insured goes to trail and allows a jury to decide on an award for a plaintiff who was hit by a drunk driver, they’re going to pay up. An injury settlement is in their best interest and makes the entire legal process shorter and less stressful for you while recovering from your injuries.
