DUI Accident Lawyers in Wilmington
Call Us After a Drunk Driving Accident
Every day intoxicated drivers cause serious vehicle accidents across the United States. While the criminal justice system mandates penalties for criminal wrongdoing, there is still the question about what happens to the victims of drunk driving. A DUI conviction does not ensure that the victims will be fairly compensated by available insurance.
To seek fair and equitable compensation after being hit by a drunk driver in Wilmington, come to Bifferato Gentilotti LLC. Our DUI accident attorneys focus on making filing a DUI accident claim as easy and stress-free as possible, beginning with a free consultation that does not obligate you to use our services if you change your mind.
Call (302) 663-7135 to discuss your legal options with our team today.
Intoxication Affects a Driver
Drinking alcohol can cause negative physical and mental effects, such as slowed reaction time, blurred vision and general overall impairment.
What is a Fair Settlement for My Drunk Driving Accident Case?
Before you pursue a claim for the damages you have suffered, you are likely wondering whether it will be worth it to take legal action. Every car accident case is unique, even when the cause was a drunk driver. There are still nuances that will have to be taken into consideration.
On average, drunk driving lawsuits settle for anywhere between $10,000 and millions of dollars. The large discrepancy involves factors such as:
The severity of the injury and whether the damage is permanent
Degree of comparative negligence
Amount of economic loss suffered
Expenses incurred, including the time spent off work
It is best to speak with a DUI accident attorney who can evaluate your case and provide you with a clear perspective on what you can expect to get out of a claim.
Impact of a Conviction
The criminal justice system operates independently of the civil court system. A DUI conviction does not necessarily impact your DUI related injury claim. However, it is something that our attorneys can use to your advantage. If a criminal court concludes that the driver was impaired at the time of the crash, then it is likely that a civil jury should logically reach the same conclusion and may even award punitive damages.
In most cases, personal injury claims in Delaware have a two-year statute of limitations, which means we will have two years from the date of your accident to file a claim as criminal proceedings resolve.
To get your DUI accident claim in order without stressing it, call (302) 663-7135 and connect with our Wilmington DUI accident lawyers now.
