20x Medical Bill Settlement for Victim of DUI Wreck
This story is a little different than the typical case results we share. A common misconception about The Champion Firm is that we only handle “big” cases or catastrophic accidents. While we certainly DO handle those on a regular basis, our team also handles hundreds of “smaller” car accident claims.
Our client was a 17-year-old driving with his friend in Fayette County, GA. Another vehicle ran a stop sign and hit our client’s vehicle. Later the at-fault driver was charge with a DUI for having marijuana in their car. Our client had $1,250 in medical bills and missed several days of school and holiday events as his accident happened in early December.
Because of the punitive damages due to the DUI, The Champion Firm was able to settle the case for $25,000, 20x his medical bills. This is the perfect example of how much of a difference it can make in your claim if you have a skilled attorney representing you.
