Accidents Caused by Drunk Drivers
Hawaii’s Trusted Car Accident Attorney
A person’s decision to get behind the wheel of a vehicle while drunk often leads to devastating consequences. If you are the victim of a car accident caused by an intoxicated driver, the Law Office of Jon S. Jacobs, LLLC is here to help you fight for the compensation you deserve.
Our Honolulu drunk driving accident lawyer has over 15 years of experience representing clients who experienced the same challenges you now face. Just like we did for them, our legal team can handle every aspect of your case from start to finish so that you can focus on healing.
Dealing with Insurance Companies
If you were injured by a drunk driver, that driver’s insurance company is likely to contact you. They will begin asking you several questions pertaining to the accident and your injuries. We strongly encourage you not to engage in a conversation with them on your own. Often, insurers use these conversations to limit their liability.
Another tactic that insurance companies love to use is to offer victims a settlement that is significantly less than the claim is actually worth. By speaking to our legal team first, we can help ensure you understand the full extent of your damages and what you are actually entitled to. We can also negotiate with these insurers on your behalf, so you do not have to risk saying something that could jeopardize your settlement.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a drunk driving accident, contact the Law Office of Jon S. Jacobs, LLLC (808) 468-6484 now.
