Compensation Available After Drunk Driving Crashes In San Francisco

You’re probably facing medical expenses after being in a car accident involving a driver with a blood alcohol content over the legal limit. You may also have suffered such serious injuries in your car wreck that you’ll need future medical treatments which will create yet more bills. Nadrich & Cohen can help you recover compensation for past and future medical bills.
Those who are injured by impaired drivers are often unable to work due to their injuries. Sometimes they’re simply hurt too badly to work.

Our law firm can help you recover financial compensation to pay for the repair or replacement of your vehicle if it was damaged or totaled by the reckless driving of a drunk driver. In addition, we can help you recover compensation for anything else in the vehicle which was damaged or destroyed.

Why Do I Need A Lawyer To Handle My Drunk Driving Accident Case?
You might think you can handle your drunk driving accident case by yourself. While you’re not technically required to hire a lawyer to handle your case, you simply won’t be able to recover the financial compensation you deserve without a lawyer unless you’re a lawyer yourself. In addition, the road to handling your case by yourself is full of pitfalls – talking with insurance companies is especially dangerous and something which should be left to experienced lawyers.
You Won’t Receive The Compensation You Deserve Without A Lawyer
If you have been injured in a drunk driving accident, the drunk driver’s insurance company will probably be the ultimate source of any financial compensation you’re able to obtain.
The insurance company representing the drunk driver is legally obligated under California law to pay you for all of your damages up to the policy limits. However, failure to live up to this legal obligation isn’t a criminal offense. If the insurance company refuses to offer you what you’re actually entitled to for your injuries, the only way to enforce the law is to file a lawsuit. Filing a lawsuit is the only way to force the insurance company to pay you what you’re entitled to.
The thing is, if you don’t hire a lawyer, the insurance company knows you can’t file a lawsuit against them and win. The insurance company will have lawyers representing them in court. They know you can’t win a lawsuit without your own attorney. So, if you don’t have a lawyer, the insurance company simply will not respect your ability to sue them and win. This means that if you don’t have a lawyer, the insurance company will never offer you a fair settlement offer. They’ll offer you a tiny fraction of what you’re entitled to and dare you to take them to court over it.
This is where experienced drunk driving accident lawyers like Nadrich & Cohen come into play. We’ve been handling these cases for over 30 years and insurance companies have long files on us. They look up these files when they see we’re handling a case. These files tell them that when we go to court, we win. As a result, almost every single one of our drunk driving accident cases settle out of court. This is because insurance companies know it is a waste of their time and money to try to go to battle with us in court. They’re not going to waste money on lawyers, lose and have to pay you anyways. They’ll likely just pay you what you deserve out of court when they see us representing you.
The best way to recover what you deserve for your injuries is to hire experienced personal injury lawyers like Nadrich & Cohen. Studies show that injury victims recover far more compensation for their injuries when they have a lawyer than when they don’t, even after legal fees are taken into account.
It’s Dangerous To Talk With Insurance Companies
Did you know that insurance companies train adjusters to trick injury victims into saying incriminating things while they’re being recorded? It’s true. Insurance companies will not hesitate to resort to dirty tricks to preserve their own profit margin.
For this reason, it’s very important for you to hire lawyers who can talk with the insurance companies for you. If you accidentally say the wrong thing to an insurance company, they can claim it’s evidence that you’re partially at fault for your accident. They can claim it’s evidence your injuries aren’t as severe as claimed. They can use your statements against you to minimize the money they pay you.
