Hit by a Drunk Driver?

Hit by a Drunk Driver?

The Dallas Forth Worth area is filled with a variety of restaurants, bars, and night clubs for our entertainment.  Despite the legal implications of driving while intoxicated, there are still many who still choose to drink excessively and operate a motor vehicle.  These people don’t know their limit, which results in serious accidents.  

A drunk driver puts everyone else on the road at risk.  Research shows that drivers are more likely to be involved in a collision after consuming alcoholic beverages even though the driver feels fine.  In Texas, you are considered legally intoxicated if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is .08 or greater.  Unfortunately, too many people still choose to get behind the wheel after drinking too much.

A drunk driving accident poses a much higher risk of causing a fatality or serious bodily injuries.  Furthermore, the drunk driver may be subject to a higher damages award and maybe even an award of punitive damages.  Likewise, their insurance company may handle the claim differently.  You need an experienced car accident attorney on your side to make sure you get the full value of your drunk driving accident case.   

If you have been injured in an accident with a drunk driver, don’t be victimized again by the insurance company.  Get the proper legal representation by an attorney who is experienced in representing clients that have been injured by a drunk driver.

Represents in court

Litigation is complex and requires close adherence to proper procedures and rules of evidence. This is not a task best handled by a novice.
