For many adults, Halloween is a time to let loose and have a little fun. Often this fun includes drinking alcohol. Statistically, over 40 percent of all automobile accidents that occur on Halloween are alcohol related. If you or someone you love was injured by a reckless, drunk driver on Halloween, the skilled, compassionate team at Fitzpatrick Mariano Santos Sousa P.C is ready to help you.
The party responsible for causing your accident will be charged with criminal offenses and tried in criminal court for his or her crimes, but you as a personal injury victim have the right to file a claim in civil court regarding your injuries.
Often insurance companies offer settlements as quickly as possible after your accident, so they do not have to factor in the total cost of your loss. If you were severely injured, you could face high medical bills, loss of wages from time taken off work, and expenses incurred due to traveling between your doctor’s office and home. For many people in your position, it becomes difficult to make ends meet. Remember, insurance companies are generally more concerned with making a profit than they are with ensuring you and your family receive a comparable settlement.
Benefits of filing a lawsuit after you were injured by a drunk driver:
- We gather evidence and speak to the insurance company so you can focus on healing
- We can fight for you to recover the maximum compensation offered
- You will have to worry less about the livelihood of your family
- We can work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you don’t pay us unless we win
