Drunk Driving Accidents

When you pull out onto a Florida road in your car, you have every right to expect that the people that you share the roads with are taking the appropriate precautions to keep you and everyone else safe from harm. This includes obeying traffic laws just as you do and making sure that they are in complete physical and mental control of the situation. Unfortunately, this is not always the case – an alarming number of people choose to operate their motor vehicles after consuming alcohol, putting you and your passengers at great risk because of this selfish and reckless behavior. Getting into an accident with a drunk driver can be extremely frustrating, knowing that if they had made better decisions that the accident may have never occurred, and you may have never suffered these injuries.

Seeking Financial Damages After a Drunk Driving Accident in Florida

It is not fair for a victim of a drunk driving accident to need to cover any of the financial impacts of the crash, but unfortunately, fairness is not the priority when it comes to an insurance company’s settlement strategy. Instead, an insurance company focuses on paying as little as possible to a claimant while managing to avoid any further legal action, which is why you will need to waive your rights to legal action upon accepting a settlement offer. Insurance companies rely on the fact that you will be stressed and overwhelmed, and will simply accept their initial offer without considering the long-term implications of this decision.

An Attorney Can Get You What You Deserve

What the insurance company does not want you to know is that this initial offer is simply a starting point for ongoing negotiations, not a final chance at getting compensated. At the same time, though, you should be focusing on recovering from your injuries, not taking on the stress of an intense legal negotiation, which is why hiring a personal injury attorney is such an important step to take early in the process.

Negotiate With Leverage

From the moment you begin working with a drunk driving accident lawyer in Florida, they will be able to go through each and every minute detail of your case in order to ensure that every financial impact, no matter how minor or major, is included in your calculations. Once they have gathered all of this information and are prepared to initiate negotiations with the insurance company, they will use these calculations to fight for a settlement while hopefully avoiding trial. 

Reach a Settlement That Works For You

Most personal injury claims, drunk driving claims included, are settled without needing to go to trial. This does not guarantee that you will be able to avoid a trial, but the odds are in your favor. Trials are costly, time-consuming, and typically we should be able to reach an agreement with the insurance company in order to avoid this extra process; however, if we are unable to reach an agreement, we are not afraid to take your case to the Florida courts. The important thing is that you are fairly compensated, no matter how much work it takes.
