The Legal Process For Multi Car DUI Accident Victims
Davis Law Group has been representing victims of drunk driving collisions for more than 20-years and understands that no two cases are the same and every detail of a crash matters.
This crash in particular involving three different vehicles and six individuals including the accused DUI driver means recovery for all of the victims may be limited as even with good insurance, the at fault driver may not be intended to cover more than two or three parties.
Furthermore with one person sustaining life threatening injuries, two more hospitalized and another 2 who may have their own injuries however serious they may be.
Accidents with multiple victims like this one will often rely on the insurance carried by the victim more than that of the at fault driver due to the nature of the at fault drivers limits being split in multiple ways.
Coverage options like personal injury protection, known as PIP, and underinsured/ uninsured motorist protection or UIM offer accident victims additional options after a crash when the at fault drivers insurance may not cover all of the damage their negligence has caused.
Serious injures resulting from drunk driving collisions require serious care and treatment, and if you or a loved one feels like they are not getting that serious treatment or like an insurance company is not taking your case seriously Davis Law Group is here to help.
