Q: Victim of a drunk driver that damaged property exceeding $30,000 in repairs. Need a lawyer who can file civil suits.
The drunk driver was dismissed of all chargers. I am looking for a lawyer who can pursue a civil law suit and look into if there was any leniency towards the defendant. Victim feels as if there was not enough action taken for restitution and wants to sue the city of Yuma. Are there lawyers here in Maricopa county willing to take on this case?
A: First you need to search for other possible insurance policies on which to make claims, but if there are no other policies available, besides the one you have exhausted, then you need to do an asset search on the liable party to see if it will be worth the return on your investment to file a lawsuit against them. Check your own insurance coverage.
