How Much Is My Illinois Drunk Driving Case Worth? 

Personal injury cases can be worth almost any amount. Some personal injury claims with minor injuries might be worth a few thousand dollars. Severe and catastrophic injury cases can be worth six or even seven figures. Every case and injury is unique, so always have an Illinois personal injury attorney review your case promptly.

Drunk driving cases are unique because there is usually conclusive evidence that the driver was negligent and caused your injuries. The police probably cited the driver for drunk driving, and most insurance companies are less likely to argue fault with this type of damning evidence. Your case might be worth more because the at-fault driver was intoxicated.

Also critical to the value of your case is the severity of your injuries. If you have a sprained neck and back and can’t work for a month, the case can be worth less than if you shatter your pelvis and can’t walk for a year. Drunk driving accident injuries that require surgery or extended hospital stays are often worth more. If your injuries negatively affect your life for months or years, the case value also rises.

Your TopDog Law attorney will review the case and look for any insurance policy to compensate you. If the driver has considerable assets, your attorney may also recommend filing a lawsuit to recover additional damages.

How TopDog Law Will Fight The Insurance Company 

One of the most critical jobs of your attorney is to fight the insurance company and stand up for your rights. Auto insurance companies aim to pay you as little as possible or deny your claim.

They don’t care how injured you are; if they can blame you for the accident, they will. They also will try to get you to take a small settlement so they can close the case. They know that juries frown upon drunk drivers, and if the case goes to court, the insurance company might pay much more.

However, the drunk driving lawyers at TopDog Law won’t let the insurance company stick it to you. Our attorneys are skilled, tenacious, and fearless. We will never back down when up against a stingy insurance company trying to short-change you.

We will fight for the most money in your settlement. We are prepared to take your case to trial and win if negotiations fail.
