ATTENTION – You should be very cautious of this option.
The “at-fault” insurer’s goal is to payout as little as possible, not what you’re fully entitled to.
Further, the representative will most likely ask you to sign a “release of liability” form which
releases the drunk-driver from all liability. Thus, if you later find yourself with added expenses
