Drunk Driving Accident Frequently Asked Questions
How can I make ends meet after a drunk driving accident?
Insurance will be responsible for covering most if not all of the expenses post-accident. If pursued individually, you will likely be in a situation in which the insurer is seeking a settlement. But in order to be adequately compensated, you’ll want to find an attorney who understands the laws and regulations in Florida in order to obtain the maximum amount of compensation for you.
Should I settle instead of pursuing further legal action?
It’s usually advised by attorneys to never take the first offer an insurance company puts forth. It’s a pleasant thought, to be able to take the first offer and move away from a headache, but many people often don’t know how bad their injuries are until later, or how much money they’ll need to repair their car or take care of their family after being out of work for a few days or weeks. It’s always best to weigh all of your options, and an attorney at Schuler, Weisser, Zoeller, Overbeck & Baxter P.A. can help show you those options.
