Waking up in a hospital to discover you are seriously injured is bad enough. Learning that you were the victim of a drunk driver is devastating. At Angotti & Straface, we work tirelessly to hold that person responsible for the senseless and easily preventable accident.
If you suffered a drunk driving injury or a loved one was killed by an intoxicated driver, contact our Morgantown law firm for a free initial consultation. Our trial lawyers have secured jury verdicts and insurance settlements for victims of drunk drivers throughout West Virginia.
Proving Liability in Drunk Driving Accidents
Angotti & Straface gets investigators to the crash scene to preserve important evidence and identify any witnesses. We obtain police reports, including toxicology reports that show the driver's blood alcohol content (BAC) at the time of the accident.
These are not necessarily slam dunk cases. You should have a skilled attorney who knows the questions to ask and prepares for the possibility of a trial. The drunk driver's lawyer may claim that the other auto accident victim was partially at fault. We may hire an accident reconstructionist to prove that the other driver in fact caused the crash.
We also go after the bar or liquor establishment that served the drunk driver prior to the crash. Under West Virginia's dram shop law, the bar can be sued for providing more alcohol to a person who was already visibly intoxicated.
Angotti & Straface pursues every source of insurance, including the uninsured/underinsured motorist protection in your own auto insurance policy. We are prepared to go to trial to get victims of drunk driving the compensation they deserve. Contact us today at 304-564-6029 for a free initial consultation.
