What To Do if the District Attorney Calls After You Were Injured by a Drunk DriverMay 31, 2022
If you have been injured by a drunk driver, you may be surprised to receive a call not from your own attorney, but from the district attorney or the defense attorney of the person who caused your injury.
It is common for both a civil case and a criminal case for a DUI to progress simultaneously, and the DUI criminal case often goes to trial faster than the DUI civil case. This will often result in the district attorney contacting you to get testimony or to learn about the harms and losses you have suffered. Occasionally, the defense attorney for the drunk driver will call, but that is far less common.
If you receive such calls and you already have an attorney, politely let the caller know the name and phone number of your attorney. They will then call your attorney, who will clear the items to be discussed and arrange to help with the prosecution of the case.
If you do not yet have an attorney, contact us to discuss your case. Watch the video to learn more.
