Written by attorney John Andrew Houghton


Most Plaintiff’s practitioners who have handled cases involving an at-fault driver cited for DUI have a basic understanding of the enhanced damages that can be recovered at trial for this conduct. In many scenarios, the at-fault’s insurer is more than eager to tender their minimum coverage limits, and all the details of the defendant’s conduct never come to light. However, in cases with significant liability insurance coverage and a good likelihood of trial, the diligent Plaintiff’s practitioner should have a full understanding of the potential legal hurdles to overcome in obtaining full civil justice for their client.
