Why Hire an Attorney?

Insurance companies work hard to limit how much they pay out, often offering a victim far less than the case is worth. That’s where an experienced attorney can help. When a knowledgeable accident lawyer represents victims, they stand a much better chance of obtaining full compensation.

Insurance Claim or Civil Lawsuit? Get Advice From Proner & Proner

The firm will aggressively pursue the insurance company or file a civil lawsuit to obtain the maximum compensation possible. Attorney Proner will work to prove that the other driver had a blood alcohol content (BAC) above .08 percent. Depending on the case, proof that the defendant’s BAC exceeded .08 percent may allow the victim to seek punitive damages as well as economic and noneconomic damages. When talking with Attorney Proner, he will discuss the different approaches to a drunk driving accident claim.

Proving the Other Driver Was Drunk

To prove that the driver was intoxicated, Mr. Proner will seek out witnesses who can testify to the driver’s behavior in a bar or club. He will also interview any witnesses of the accident itself, as well as police and emergency medical personnel. This will allow him to paint a full picture of the accident and build a strong case for compensation.
