Sealing Your Maximum Recovery In A Drunk Driver Accident Case
Your best interests can only be fully represented by an experienced personal injury lawyer. At Flesch & Beck Law , we know what you’re up against, and we are ready to win at trial from the outset. Drunk drivers often inflict devastating injuries on their victims, and insurance companies are not exactly thrilled with the potential of covering the costs of those injuries. In fact, the drunk driver’s insurance company and your own insurance company will work to limit the amount of coverage they have to pay out for your injuries and losses to the greatest extent they are able to.
It may be more difficult than you think to prove the other driver was drunk. The police report could have holes. Insurance defense lawyers are tough. Ensure that your lawyer is up to the task.
Our team has over 20 years of experience representing car accident victims throughout the Colorado Front Range. We will independently investigate your claim and collaborate with medical, automotive and law enforcement experts to establish its full and fair value.
Please call our law firm today at 720-689-0322 to speak with an attorney. We are available by phone 24/7, and we are happy to meet with you at either our Denver or Englewood office to discuss your legal options.
What Options Do You Have In A Drunk Driver Accident Case?
- If you were the victim of a hit-and-run or an underinsured driver, it may seem that your options are limited initially. However, you will see below and through the links that your options are plentiful with the right legal representation. Your uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage may be minimal, but we may be able to uncover and access other coverage available through your own insurance policies or the drunk driver’s policies.
- Punitive damages may yield compensation well above coverage available through insurance. Proving that the other driver was in fact drunk at the time of the accident may allow application of punitive damages by the court, which are designed to punish the drunk driver and prevent similar accidents in the future.
- Colorado dram shop laws (bar and restaurant liability) may also open up an additional coverage option in your case. If an establishment served the drunk driver at a time when he or she was obviously intoxicated, the business can be liable for the costs of the injuries and losses you have suffered.
It is critically important that you seek legal counsel and representation with an experienced attorney who can be dedicated to achieving maximum compensation in your case. There are still several legal hazards that can limit your recovery, and it will take impressive legal work to not just avoid them, but capitalize on them.
