“Immediately after my son’s injury at work, he was
treated poorly. Over the course of the next few days
it became even worse, so I called Mike and he and
Crystal have been absolute lifesavers during the
process. Mike is not your typical stuffed suit lawyer
who only cares about the bottom line he genuinely
cares about his clients and his assistant Crystal is
beyond amazing! My thanks to you both!” LUKE PARMENTER

“I could never ask for a better attorney, to fight for
me, to believe in me, and have faith in me, than what
I found in Mike Sabbeth, He doesn’t treat you like a
client, he treats you as if you are one of his own family
members, He will fight for you, with all he has, and
is ALWAYS up front and honest with you about
everything!” SANDRA DRUGE

Here are the steps you should take if you find yourself in this situation:
Ensure Safety: Prioritize your safety and the safety of others. If possible, move your vehicle to a safe location away from traffic. Activate hazard lights to alert other drivers.
Check for Injuries: Assess yourself and others for injuries. Call 911 immediately if anyone is hurt or requires medical attention.
Contact Law Enforcement: Report the accident to the police and make it clear that you suspect the other driver is under the influence. This will trigger a DUI (driving under the influence) investigation.
Gather Information: Exchange information with the drunk driver, including their name, contact details, and insurance information. Take photos of the accident scene, vehicle damage, and license plates.
Witnesses: If there are witnesses, obtain their contact information. Their statements may be valuable later.
Do Not Confront the Drunk Driver: Avoid engaging in confrontations or arguments with the drunk driver, as this can escalate the situation.
Avoid Making Assumptions: While you may suspect the driver is intoxicated, let law enforcement professionals determine their condition.
Document the Scene: Take notes on the accident, including the date, time, location, and weather conditions.
Stay Calm: It’s natural to feel anger and frustration but remain calm and avoid any aggressive behavior.
Report to Your Insurance: Inform your insurance company about the accident as soon as possible. Provide them with all relevant information.
Seek Medical Attention: Even if you don’t immediately feel injured, it’s a good idea to seek a medical evaluation. Some injuries may not manifest right away. A medical record that establishes the injuries in connection to the accident also may be valuable if you decide to file a personal injury claim.
Consult an Attorney: Reach out to a personal injury attorney with experience in handling drunk driving accident cases, especially if you or a passenger were injured. An attorney can explain your legal options and guide you through the process of seeking compensation.
Keep Records: Maintain records of all medical treatment, expenses, and communication related to the accident. You will need this for your legal case.
You may recover compensation for medical bills, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering from a liable drunk driver. An attorney can pursue this compensation for you.
Seek the assistance of an experienced attorney to protect your rights and recover fair compensation for your losses.”
