Legal Support For Victims Of Drunk Drivers

Drunk driving accidents take the lives of more than 10,000 individuals in the average year. In New Mexico, the death rate is higher — by a wide margin — than the national average. Most responsible drivers know to be wary, especially after a happy hour and on weekend nights. Nevertheless, as the statistics indicate, drunk drivers get into collisions frequently. If you've been hurt, it's important to work with a lawyer who can help you pursue maximum compensation in order to meet your medical bills and related expenses.

Strengthening Your Case

When working with a lawyer, it is crucial to supply them with as much relevant information as possible. The areas of importance include:

  • Accident details — Where and when were you injured? Did you receive immediate medical attention? (Was the medical attention you received substandard?) Were police on the scene and administering the proper tests? Were any containers of liquor found at the scene? Do you have any eyewitnesses or video evidence to back up your version of events?
  • Injury details — Serious injuries can lead to long-term rehab. You also could end up being out of work for a long period of time. If so, how will you get by financially? How will you meet the costs of medical care? Even with health insurance, victims find themselves in dire financial straits. But the better you understand the financial burden imposed by your injury, the more able your lawyer will be to pursue restitution.
