If my daughter was hit by a drunk driver, should we obtain an attorney?
Question Details: She was pulled over on the shoulder of the road, vehicle was in park. The drunk driver slammed into her from behind at an estimated 60-70 miles an hour. A neck injury incurred; the vehicle totaled.
The property damage and personal injury claims are separate.
The property damage claim can be resolved without an attorney.
It would be advisable for your daughter to be represented by a personal injury attorney regarding her neck injury; otherwise, the at-fault party's insurance company will try to pay as little as possible.
