Beware Of Quick Settlement Offers After Drunk Driving Accidents

Drunk driving accidents often have a high level of stigma attached to them in South Georgia. When individuals are injured in these types of accidents, insurance companies are often quick to offer a settlement — long before the victims have a chance to ascertain their true injuries or even speak with an attorney.

This is a tactic used to mitigate paying out large damages in a future lawsuit. Along with medical and other expenses, victims of drunk driving accidents are entitled to seek punitive damages as well. Punitive damages are meant to punish and deter such reprehensible behavior, and insurance companies are understandably quite fearful of them. This is what insurance adjusters will not tell victims when offering a settlement.
