Last year alone fatal car crashes in Nevada hit a 10-year high, with many of the factors in those accidents still pointing to drivers operating vehicles under the influence. Despite the emergence of ride-share apps, and increased awareness of the dangers of impaired driving, many residents continue to engage in reckless driving.
If you have been the victim of DUI accident you may understand first hand that these types of accidents often involve increased amounts of damage to your vehicle, and even worse extensive medical needs. Drunk driving accidents alone can cost thousands in hospital bills. That is before you factor in any continuing medical care that may be needed, such as ongoing physical therapy. Cars are often left in un-driveable conditions or labelled a complete loss by insurance companies. The issues at stake with a common automobile accident become compounded by the inebriated driver at the scene of a DUI accident.
Many victims question the need for an attorney following a DUI. They think, “The other person broke the law. Why would I need legal representation?”. They can be unaware that the driver may be contesting their DUI charge. That the other driver has hired a legal team who is strategizing their defense. The insurance companies also have legal teams working to minimize their liability. If they are being represented by a legal team, wouldn’t you also like the best representation by your side?
