You may think that you have an open and shut case. After all, the other driver was intoxicated. Maybe they even admitted their intoxication to the police and it is in the police report.
Unfortunately, it is not that simple. Proving liability in any auto accident case can be complicated. If the accident involved multiple cars, the drunk driver may argue that another vehicle caused the accident. Moreover, police reports generally are not admissible evidence at trial. If the defendant does not admit liability, your attorney may need to subpoena the police officer who responded to the accident to testify at trial. In certain cases, your attorney may need to retain an accident reconstruction expert to help establish liability.
Even in cases where the defendant admits liability, your attorney must properly demonstrate the extent of your damages. You want an attorney who will aggressively pursue maximum compensation for all of your damages, including pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills and future care costs — and, in some cases, punitive damages.
