If a drunk driver is the cause of your injuries, you are faced with not only your own recovery, but also the anger, frustration and stress of dealing with the legal ramifications surrounding your case. Those may include police who want to interview you for their DUI case, or insurance companies trying to resolve their case. However, your first step should be to consult with a lawyer before giving a statement to anyone.
An experienced personal injury lawyer will quickly move to preserve evidence such as the vehicles involved, get photos of the accident scene, receipts from drinking establishments, and witness statements. The sooner you get a knowledgeable attorney with experience handling drunk driving liability cases to handle your drunk driving accident case, the better.
