When you’ve been injured in a car accident where the other driver was under the influence, you have a great chance at receiving compensation for your injuries. To obtain this compensation; however, you must file a personal injury lawsuit against that individual in Seattle. With the help of a Washington personal injury attorney from Gosanko & O’Halloran, you can recover compensation that you deserve as a result of your injuries. One of our lawyers can help to decide whether or not a settlement with the driver’s insurance company will suffice or if a lawsuit is the right course of legal action.
DUI Convictions & Personal Injury Lawsuits
If there was a DUI conviction associated with your personal injury case, then you’re in luck. This is because insurance companies know that if a lawsuit against their insured party goes to trial, then they will pay more. An injury settlement is in their best interest and makes the process more streamlined. As a state that uses comparative negligence to determine fault, even if you’ve been injured, you may be given a percentage of the blame, in which that percentage is deducted from the total after the end of the process.
