If you or a loved one has been the victim of an automobile accident or personal injury caused by a drunk driver, there are some steps you should follow to make sure you get the maximum amount of compensation you deserve, as quickly as possible. First and foremost, you should obtain a copy of the police report. This will provide relevant information about who was deemed at fault for the accident, the drunk driver’s blood alcohol content, and other contributing factors that prove the drunk driver’s negligence. Second, you should see a doctor as soon as possible, regardless how minor any injuries may appear; this will provide the necessary documentation to prove that your injuries resulted from the accident, and are real. And third, immediately report the accident to your insurance company.
