What steps should a victim take if they are in a crash involving a drunk driver?

  1. Call the police and report the crash. Do not leave the scene until police arrive. It is critical the police document the drunk driver’s condition.
  2. Take a video of the drunk driver. If you are physically unable to do so, ask a bystander. There are multiple ways a drunk driver can fight criminal charges and deny they were drunk. Your video will be a strong piece of evidence in both criminal and civil cases.
  3. Get the names and contact information of all witnesses.
  4. Make sure to follow all of your doctor’s treatment orders.
  5. Cooperate with the police and district attorney.
  6. Retain the services of a skilled Virginia car accident attorney.
