The dangers of drunk driving are well known. The impairment caused by alcohol consumption frequently leads to devastating vehicle collisions which often result in incapacitating injuries and even deaths. Because the alleged drunk driver allegedly killed two people during the accident, the right to file two wrongful death claims by family members is substantial. To do so, it’s important to consult legal counsel while you file your claim since insurance companies may trick you into settling with little to no money.
