It seems that almost every day, there is a story in the news about a drunk driver who has caused a serious crash, often killing or seriously injuring innocent victims. Without a doubt, drunk drivers are negligent and need to be held responsible for their crime.
However, you may be surprised at how often this doesn’t happen. In fact, a teenager who killed four people in Texas due to drunk driving has recently been sentenced to probation, rather than jail time. Relatives of the victims had to hear that justice would not be served, and that the teenager was only required to go to rehab.
Cases like this may be more common than you think. This is why when you are involved in a DWI accident, it is important to hire an attorney from Dashner Law to help ensure that justice is served.
