Answer to Drunk driver hit me!

Hello there. Well, you need to get both insurance companies on board. Will they pay, who knows:

1. He may not have coverage – he may be driving uninsured.
2. If he has coverage, the alcohol situation may exclude coverage.

Some policies do bar coverage for alcohol and some states allow for that. Contact a local attorney

Good Luck,
