On the way home from a birthday party, a woman and her child were hit in a head-on collision by a habitual drunk driver.
The driver crossed two lanes of traffic before hitting the woman's car.
Thankfully, the woman and child's injuries were mild considering the circumstances.
The driver was arrested for DUI as well as Driving Under Suspension.
The Derrick Law Firm took this auto accident case and helped a mother and child get their medical care and bills paid after being hit by a reckless driver. We were able to negotiate punitive damages because this driver had a history of drunk driving and continued to drive intoxicated.
The settlement included punitive damages as well as a donation to the Mother's Against Drunk Driving association.
