Hodges sues drunk driver, settles for policy limits

Our firm filed suit against a drunk driver that rear-ended our client while severely intoxicated.  In fact, the defendant driver was so drunk that she registered a 0.19 blood-alcohol level.  This is more than double the legal limit of 0.08 and is considered a “Super DUI.”  Our client suffered personal injuries, missed time from work, and had property damage.

We were able to recover full compensatory damages and punitive damages for our client.  Our client was pleased that her personal injury lawsuit was resolved via out of court settlement, as opposed to lengthy litigation and trial.  As always, we are thrilled if our client is thrilled.
