- Ask the emergency dispatcher to send an ambulance.

How we can help
As your attorney, we can contact the police and ask for a copy of the official accident report. This report should document what tests were given to determine if the other driver was legally intoxicated. The official accident report should also state whether the other driver was drunk.
But that’s only the beginning of what we can do for you. The hardest part of our job often involves convincing the other driver’s insurance company to fully compensate you for your accident. In many cases, many insurance companies do everything they can to reduce or deny accident claims altogether.
Insurance companies don’t intimidate us. We know how to negotiate with them. And if they refuse to cooperate, we’re prepared to take them to court and file a lawsuit against them on your behalf. That’s why it’s critical that you contact us as soon as possible. The sooner we can get to work on your case, the sooner we can help you get your life back on track.
