When someone makes the irresponsible decision to get behind the wheel after drinking alcohol, they put the lives of others at risk. Sadly, in Monmouth, New Jersey, and across the country, this reckless behavior continues to occur and sometimes results in lost lives and serious injuries. Even with awareness campaigns and news coverage, people continue to drive while intoxicated. Although drunk driving accidents cannot always be prevented, the innocent victims of these accidents can be assisted in their attempt to recover. At Escandon, Fernicola, Anderson & Covelli, we work hard to help victims receive the compensation they deserve.
When a drunk driving accident victim tries to move forward, it is important for them to be wary of what the insurance company tells them. For many victims who want to receive the compensation they depend on, filing a lawsuit is necessary. If an insurance company is not willing to offer a settlement or provide full compensation, victims of these accidents should do everything they can to stand up for their rights and hold drunk drivers accountable. If someone decides to move forward with legal action, it is important for them to understand all of their options and approach their case properly. Also, people who are in this position should make sure they work with experts who understand the ins and outs of the law and know how to identify the best course of action.
