  • An aggressive injury attorney can work with the assistant district attorney who is prosecuting the criminal case and help you push for longer jail terms and stiffer sentences for the drunken driver.
  • An aggressive attorney may be able to obtain compensation for you even if the drunk driver who caused your injury is uninsured.
  • An aggressive attorney may be able to obtain punitive damages for you in addition to compensation for your pain and suffering, medical expenses and lost earnings.
  • Some attorneys who claim to be experts in representing personal injury victims also defend drunken drivers in court!
  • Some attorneys who claim to be experts in representing personal injury victims do not have access to advanced background and criminal database searches to find out if the drunken driver in your case has previous convictions.  A previous conviction for drunk driving can lead to increased compensation for you!
