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 New York personal injury attorney can help. When a knowledgeable accident lawyer represents car accident victims in NYC, the victims stand a much better chance of obtaining full compensation.
Proner & Proner is a New York City personal injury law firm that will aggressively pursue the insurance company or file a civil lawsuit to obtain the maximum compensation possible in your DUI accident case. 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 you about your case, Attorney Proner will discuss the different approaches to a drunk driving accident claim.
To prove that the other motorist in your NYC drunk driving accident was intoxicated, Mr. Proner will seek out witnesses who can testify to the driver’s behavior in a bar or club before getting behind the wheel. Attorney Proner will also interview any witnesses of the accident itself, as well as police officers and emergency medical personnel. This will allow him to paint a full picture of the auto accident and build a strong case for compensation on your behalf.
