I Was Hit by a Drunk Driver, What Should I Do?

If you’re hit by a drunk driver, there are crucial steps you should take to protect your rights and strengthen your case. First, if it’s safe, exit your vehicle and take pictures of everything at the scene. This evidence is invaluable. If the other driver appears intoxicated, document their behavior with photos or videos. Don’t hesitate to ask if they’ve been drinking; their responses can be used in court.

Exchange information with the driver, but the most important step is to wait for the police. Provide them with a detailed statement about what happened. This official report is critical for your case.

After addressing the immediate situation, your next step is to contact a personal injury attorney. At The Foster Firm, we specialize in handling cases involving drunk driving accidents.
