Drunk Driver Accidents
EXPERIENCED AND AGGRESSIVE ATTORNEY REPRESENTS TEXANS WITH SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURIES CAUSED BY DRUNK DRIVERS
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every day at least 29 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve alcohol-impaired or drug-impaired drivers. Those who have been seriously injured by drunk drivers number much more; and in Texas specifically, the number of drunk drivers on the road has vastly outpaces the national average.
CRASHES CAUSED BY DRUNK DRIVERS ARE DIFFERENT THAN OTHER CRASHES, DK LAW CAN HELP
Unlike most other types of motor vehicle crashes, those caused by drunk drivers typically involve gross negligence and a crime committed by the drunk driver. A local district attorney or prosecutor may get involved to file criminal charges against the drunk driver, but you, the victim, will not receive compensation for your injuries unless you hire an experienced law firm to help you with your civil case. That’s where DK Law, PLLC comes in.
I employ a practical, professional approach with a fighting spirit to help obtain compensation for your injuries, including damages for past and future medical bills, lost wages, lost income, emotional distress, and pain and suffering. If you have lost a loved one in a crash caused by a drunk driver, I can file a wrongful death action and fight to obtain the best possible recovery by applying my extensive litigation experience and negotiation skills.
THE DRUNK DRIVER THAT CAUSED YOUR ACCIDENT MAY NOT BE THE ONLY PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURIES
An experienced law firm like DK Law, PLLC knows that the drunk driver responsible for the crash, may not be the only person that can be held liable for causing you harm. In some circumstances, Texas’ “Dram Shop” laws allow an injured person to bring a civil claim against the bar, restaurant, or other business that sole or served the alcohol to the drunk driver before the crash.
DK Law, PLLC is one of the few law firms that investigate this unique aspect of drunk driver cases.
YOU MAY STILL HAVE A PERSONAL INJURY CASE EVEN THOUGH THE DRUNK DRIVER FLED THE SCENE OR FAILED TO CARRY INSURANCE
One unfortunate scenario occurs when the adverse driver that caused the crash either flees the scene or fails to have auto insurance. Do not give up! You may carry an automobile insurance policy that includes coverage that provides compensation for no-fault drivers who have been hurt by uninsured or underinsured drivers. All insurance companies are out to save money and you need an experienced law firm to help navigate these waters to help get you the settlement and justice you deserve.
