A Strong Ally For Drunk Driving Accident Victims
Every time a drunk driver gets behind the wheel, they put the lives of every driver, passenger and pedestrian on the road at risk. If you or someone close to you has suffered a personal injury due to the actions of a drunk driver in Louisville or anywhere in Kentucky, the attorneys at Satterley & Kelley PLLC are here to stand up for your rights.
Seeking Maximum Damages
Kentucky legislators have taken steps to strengthen drunk driving laws in recent years, but intoxicated drivers still abound on streets and highways in Louisville and throughout the state.
In handling drunk driving accident cases, we work to maximize our clients’ compensation, helping them obtain the financial resources they will need to pay for medical bills, wage loss and other damages.
Under Kentucky law, a plaintiff may be awarded punitive damages (in addition to compensatory damages) if there is clear evidence the at-fault driver was intoxicated at the time of the accident. In some cases, it may even be possible to pursue damages from the bar owner who served the at-fault driver. These additional damages can make a profound difference in the lives of the victims. This is why it is so important to enlist the services of a law firm with the experience to handle difficult cases.
Even when a driver is clearly at fault and there is no question that he or she was intoxicated, insurance companies will try to settle the case for as little as they can get by with. We are well versed in these tactics and use our advanced legal knowledge to fight for full and fair compensation.
