I was injured by someone who I think was drunk, but they were not issued a ticket. What can I do?

You get in a wreck. You think that the person is drunk. Law enforcement shows up and for whatever reason, law enforcement does not arrest the person for Driving Under the Influence. Where does that leave us? Well, I’ll tell you where it leaves us. It leaves us in a situation where we’re going to have to prove on our own, without law enforcement, that the person was drunk. The good news is we can absolutely do that. The way you do it is through circumstantial evidence. You hear that term circumstantial evidence. People think it’s weak, it’s not good. Most of the time, that’s the way cases get proven. How do we do it? We find out was the person slurring? Was the person stumbling? Were they repeating themselves? Those sorts of things. The best evidence that somebody was drunk when they were driving comes from what? The way they were driving, that’s where really the best evidence usually comes from. We can get there from here, absolutely. You’re probably going to need a lawyer to do it. Good luck.
