Drunk driving is illegal; however, it is prevalent. When someone gets behind the wheel while they are buzzed, they pose a danger to everyone on the road. Drunk driving accidents often result in serious injuries or even fatalities.
If you or a loved one was the victim of a drunk driving accident, contact a Detroit DUI accident lawyer right away. You need someone on your side willing to fight back against the insurance companies who might try to deny financial liability.
Why You Need a Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer
Drunk driving accidents are somewhat different than standard motor vehicle crashes. You will have to deal with the criminal court process and file an insurance claim and personal injury lawsuit, which is a civil court process.
You should work with an attorney familiar with the law, the court process, and local courts to make your life easier.

What Are My Rights if a Drunk Driver Hits Me?
When a drunk driver causes a wreck, you have several rights. First, you have a right to see them held criminally accountable. They will likely be arrested at the scene, and you will have an opportunity to testify against them in court. They may end up pleading guilty, and your testimony will not be necessary.
Second, you have a right to collect compensation for any of your losses. You can file an insurance claim against their automobile policy to recover compensation to cover any economic or noneconomic losses you have experienced.
How Much Is My Case Worth?
The value of your claim depends on many factors. The severity of your injuries, property damage, and insurance policy limits are some of the primary determinants of how much your case is worth. Davis Injury Lawyers, PLLC can help you get compensation to cover the following:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning potential
- Loss of consortium (spousal relationship)
- Property damage
- Mental distress
- Pain and suffering
Dealing with Insurance Companies Post Accident
There is a chance that the at-fault driver’s insurance company may try to deny liability after your wreck. They may say the driver acted intentionally and should be held accountable on their own.
However, it is much harder to obtain compensation from an individual than it is from an insurance company. That’s why it’s crucial to work with a DUI accident attorney who will fight for you.
We Negotiate with Insurance Companies for You
Attorney Maurice Davis will begin by issuing a letter of representation to the insurance company. This lets them know that if they want to talk to you, they must go through him to do it. This will relieve some of the stress off your shoulders. Then, he will make a demand for a reasonable amount of money.
If they refuse your claim or try to delay Davis Injury Lawyers, PLLC isn’t afraid to go to court.
