A drunk driving accident is one of the easiest ways to receive compensation if someone else was negligent. Think about it, judges and juries do not sympathize for anyone who was drunk driving. They fear for their families, themselves and anyone else who simply drives on the road and is victimized by drunk drivers. Unfortunately drunk driving accidents occur quite often and although you can try to avoid then you might end up getting stuck in a situation where a drunk driver hits your vehicle.

Let’s take a look at some drunk driving accident tips that you might never have heard of before they can help you receive the compensation that you deserve and protect yourself after the accident occurs.

Speak With the Drunk Driver as Much as You Can

An interesting way to extract as much information as possible from a drunk driver is to speak with them as much as you can. Some people think that the person is drunk then you should avoid them at all costs. If the person is not violent then you should speak with them and try to get them to admit is much as possible. Since they are drunk they will admit as much information that you can extract so that you can give this information to your San Antonio personal injury lawyer to help your case in the future.

Avoid the Driver and Snap Photos If Dangerous

If the drunk driver seems dangerous after they step out of their vehicle then you should avoid the driver at all costs. Take as many pictures as you can and even snap some videos if you think it will help your case. Get pictures of the crash scene, license plate and the person who was negligent during the accident.

Talk to and Exchange Info With Witnesses

If there are witnesses in the area then you should speak with them and exposed the drunk driver to these people so that they are more willing to help you in the case. Get contact information from these witnesses so you can give this information to your personal injury lawyers.
