The other person was drunk …now what?
I’m Dan Friedman. Suppose you are injured by a drunk driver? Clients often think that is the end of the case and they should be paid at once. If they are forced to file suit clients feel like THEY are on trial, as opposed to the person that caused the accident in the first place. The reason this happens is that the at-fault drivers almost always simply admit that they caused the accident. In Nebraska, this kind of admission ends any and all inquiries into the nature of the defendant’s negligence.
After the question of fault is resolved, the only remaining question becomes how much is a fair figure to compensate the injured person. Because the injured person has the burden of proving her case, the lawyers then turn their focus almost exclusively on the injured person, her medical records and what the doctor has to say about the injury.
This fact understandably troubles many people that have the misfortune of being involved in an accident through no fault of their own. Dealing with it requires a great deal of patience.
