Maybe more then one night...
Yeah Im pissed he did not have the courtesy to help her..a complete stranger had to get the door open but would not allow her out since she was in shock and pain. Those airbags pack a wallop and the seatbelt injury can create hematomas. The more I think about it the more pissed I get....
Here they have a DRAM law where they can go after the bars who serve these drunks. Thankfully she is not injured enough to go to that length but I am glad to hear IF she were injured and remained hospitalized they could go after anyone who provided the drinks. She has been in bed all day on painkillers and xanax. This is a woman who NEVER stops moving. she can't sit for a minute. Always doing something. Its painful to see her like this even though I am greatful she was not seriously hurt.
The adjuster will be calling me....I think I will refrain from all talk that is not Property damage related and tell her I am seeking legal help with this. Usually insurance companys have 2 adjusters, one for property and the other for injury and they are settled separately.
Thanks for your advice guys....I am not one to sue at the drop of a hat and i won't this time. I will let the expert do what they do becasue its a DUI case.. They may settle this. I don't see how they have a leg to stand on with their guy in jail.
