Chicago Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers
Our car accident attorneys fight for the rights of the injured
Everyone knows that drunk driving is extremely dangerous, but every year, drivers still get behind the wheel after having too much to drink. The result is usually a car accident that leaves people seriously hurt. The car accident attorneys at Keating Law Offices, P.C. help the injured recover financial compensation.
Being involved in a car accident caused by a drunk driver can change your life in an instant. Suddenly, you are left with serious injuries and need medical treatment. You may need surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy and medication. Recovery may take months or even years. You may even be left with a permanent disability.
There is also a financial impact. The medical expense for treating your injury can add up very quickly. If you are left unable to work for some time because of your injury, there is less income coming in. Things can get very tight financially for victims and their families. Many find it hard to pay the bills.
Attorneys committed to getting results
If you were injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver, you deserve financial compensation for the damages you have suffered. It seems like it should be simple. The driver was negligent by operating a vehicle while drunk and caused an accident. This accident left you injured. So, the insurance company should pay for the damages.
It is usually more complicated than that. Drivers may still deny they were legally intoxicated. They may hire a lawyer to fight any charges they are facing. They may deny any responsibility for causing the accident that left you hurt.
Insurance companies aren’t on your side, either. They have their best interests in mind, not yours. Their best interests are keeping profits high. They are mostly interested in resolving your claim in a way that helps them save money, and they have lawyers working on their behalf to help them do that.
That is why you need an experienced car accident lawyer who will fight for your rights. We can help you navigate the claims process every step of the way. Our attorneys know how to build cases that hold drunk drivers accountable and help you recover the financial compensation you deserve.
