West Virginia firm fighting to hold drunk drivers accountable

Last week on the blog we discussed how alcohol can affect an individual's ability to safely drive his or her vehicle. Sadly, far too many West Virginians are injured in drunk driving accidents, causing them extensive damage in the form of physical, emotional and financial losses. Drunk driving accident victims may suffer broken bones, head and neck injuries and even spinal cord and brain injuries. Additionally, they may struggle to pay for unexpected medical expenses at a time when they are likely unable to work and earn their wage. These damages, when taken together, can cause significant stress, sadness, anxiety and anger.

Fortunately, these car accident victims may be able to impose liability on a drunk driver and recover the compensation they need to get back on their feet. In order to do so, though, they need to take legal action with confidence, prepared to take the matter to trial if need be. Therefore, before even filing a claim, a victim needs to know what evidence may be at his or her disposal and how strongly that evidence will support his or her claim.

At Stephen P. New Attorney at Law, our team of dedicated legal professionals works with clients every day to ensure they know the reality of their case. We advise our clients with regard to settlement offers, too, engaging in aggressive negotiations to get the best deal possible under the circumstances. Yet, not every settlement offer should be accepted. In those instances, we stand ready to advocate for our clients before a judge and jury.

Regardless of what you want to get out of your case, you need to be sure that you know how to give yourself the best possible chance of reaching a favorable outcome. Having the assistance of a qualified legal professional may prove beneficial, as he or she will know the realistic outcome of such a case and how to competently present evidence on your behalf. Therefore, if you need compensation for your loss, which were caused by the negligence of another, then you may want to consider whether the help of an attorney is right for you.
