If The Person That Caused My Car Accident Was Drunk Can That Be Used Against Them?
Hey everybody this is Andy Rosenberg from the Law Offices of Andrew G. Rosenberg.
I’m here to help in regards to your personal injury matters which include auto accidents and slip and falls.Oone of the questions that I’ve had pop up is if my client’s in an accident and it’s not their fault and the person that caused it actually was drunk and they actually got cited for a DUI, can that be used against them to try and settle the case?
The answer is it depends.
If it goes to court usually that will not come in and it can’t be used against them, but there are ways that you could get it into us for character witnesses or character reasons. But i can tell you that when it comes to pre-settlement I use that as leverage, and the insurance companies do know obviously that the person was charged with the DUI and that’s going to hurt them. They really don’t want that to go to trial so the answer is it depends, but yes, it can be used as leverage to try and settle your case.
I hope you found that worthwhile. If so please like or comment to the YouTube channel or subscribe to my YouTube channel that would be fantastic. In addition I have social media sites that you can check out, and finally I have a website called askandylegal.com which will have a lot of vital information that I think would be worthwhile for you to check out.
I look forward to seeing you again. Take care.Adios!
