Re: hit by drunk driver

Absolutely. The 2 key issues in a case such as this is 1. Liability and 2. Damages. You appear to have both on your side. I highly recommend you call or email an experienced personal injury attorney in Northern Virginia, such as myself, for a free and confidential consultation.

Re: hit by drunk driver

Yes, absolutely. But you will probably not get it without a lawsuit filed by an attorney. The insurance company will resist.

You can also get punitive damages if it is proven that the driver was drunk.
