What should you do when you are injured by a DUI driver in Louisville? DUI injury cases are legally quite complex but the experienced personal injury attorneys at Hargadon, Lenihan and Herrington, PLLC each have decades of experience in these types of injury accidents. We can answer your questions and work to achieve the best possible outcome in your personal injury case.
DUI car accidents can be quite severe, resulting in injuries which will have a permanent impact on your life going forward. DUI drivers are often slipping in and out of consciousness and their vehicles may cross the center line into oncoming traffic resulting in a head-on and often fatal collision. The DUI driver may simply run a red light, unaware of their surroundings and plow into the side of your vehicle.
Side impact crashes often provide the least amount of protection for the occupants of a car. These motor vehicle crashes can result in serious injuries including head trauma, back and neck injuries and bone fractures. When you are injured by a DUI driver in Louisville you need the seasoned counsel of HLH attorneys.
These cases can involve several layers of insurance. The primary source of financial recovery is the insurance of the DUI driver. If that person was driving a commercial vehicle or while at work there are additional layers of insurance covering the commercial vehicle as well as the company the driver was working for.
What happens when you are injured by a DUI driver in Louisville who only has the state minimum insurance coverage or no car insurance whatsoever? In these cases it will be important to pursue a claim against the UM/UIM portion of your own car insurance policy.
This is why it is important to work with the experienced injury attorneys at HLH. Since 1924, we have represented those who are injured and helped them to achieve the best possible outcome in their cases.
