A couple of months ago I was hit by a drunk driver at a red light. The driver was at twice the legal limit and has a prior drunk driving conviction, so I think it might be worth trying to get punitive damages against them at trial or at least to bring it up when the insurance company offers me a compensation package. I feel like I'm leaving money on the table if I don't bring it up, but I doubt they have enough assets to pay that on their own, and I don't know if the insurance company has to cover all their insured's liability or just the compensation part. Thank you for any help clearing this up.

I performed all tests and did the portable bac test.

He handcuffed me, put in the cruiser, informed my husband and left him in our car on the side of the road after taking my keys from him.

We then drove home. Will they be able to charge me later even though I was let go and not arreste
