Abrego Law Firm Secures Settlement for Injured DUI Victim

The Abrego Law Firm, LLC recently obtained a pre-suit settlement for a client injured by a drunk driver in a DUI automobile collision. We forced the DUI driver's insurance company to pay nearly 43 times the client's medical expenses.

In Georgia, a person who decides to operate a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs is presumed to have acted with a specific intent to cause harm and can be held liable for unlimited punitive damages.

In this case, our investigation revealed that the at-fault driver was under the influence of alcohol and prescription drugs at the time of the collision. We also learned that the at-fault driver had been previously convicted of a DUI and other drug charges. We attended the DUI Arraignment on behalf of our client and argued strenuously against any reduction in the criminal charges.

We sent a pre-suit settlement demand (also known as a "Holt" demand) to the DUI driver's insurance company advising of our intent to seek punitive damages against its driver as well as bad faith penalties against the insurance company for insuring such a dangerous individual. The insurance company paid our demand within twenty (20) days.
