Drinking and driving is widely recognized as being an enormously irresponsible and dangerous behavior. Despite this fact, however, you cannot count on the insurance company to pay you the amount that you deserve. What you must remember is that their goal is directly opposed to yours; they want to pay you as little as possible, or even nothing at all, in order to protect their bottom line. Regardless of the fact that the other driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, the insurance company may try to minimize or deny your claim by asserting that you are to blame for causing the accident, or even disputing the extent and scope of your injuries. In fact, in Virginia you can collect punitive damages which are intended to punish the drunken driver, in certain circumstances; however, you need a skilled Virginia personal injury lawyer to ensure the evidence is collected properly and proven in court to maximize your compensation.
