Hit by a drunk driver? Here's what you should do.

Now that the stay-at-home order has eased up, we are likely to see an increase of drivers on the road. As there are more drivers, there is a higher chance there will be impaired drivers on the road as well. So, what should you do if you are involved in an accident caused by an impaired driver?

The first thing you should do is call the appropriate medical assistance, no matter how small the injuries are. You should then proceed by calling the authorities and let them handle the situation. You do not want to be the one confronting the impaired driver. After calling medical care and the police, make sure that everything is documented. The trauma and adrenaline rush can cause you to forget details later on, so documenting is a way to make sure you have all the details from the accident.

After documenting everything, the next step you should take is contacting your attorney. It is best to contact them sooner rather than later because there is a good chance the insurance company for the impaired driver will soon start an investigation, and you should have someone trained at investigations in your corner as soon as possible. The last step you should take is leaning on those around you. Don't be shy to talk to your friends and family and let them help you if you are in need. Being hit by an impaired driver is scary, but if you follow these steps, the process can be made lot easier for you.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a drunk driving accident, contact an attorney at Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner by calling 713-396-3964 or toll free at 1-800-594-4884.
