Representing Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents
If you have been a victim of a drunk driver or know someone who has, it’s almost certain you’ve suffered more than the drunk driver. As a personal injury attorney headquartered in Irving TX, we have tried many cases against insurance companies defending their client who was so blatantly negligent.
When you look at the statistics for DWI and DUI-related driving accidents and wrongful deaths, the numbers are staggering and quite sobering. In 2007, there were 12,998 fatalities nationwide that involved a driver with a blood alcohol content .08 or higher.
When any driver steps behind the wheel of a motorized vehicle, the driver assumes the responsibility of exercising reasonable care. Failure to do so because of intoxication is not only a violation of the law but a disgraceful act of negligence that makes the driver liable for damages suffered to those injured or the family of those killed.
Our driving laws clearly acknowledge the danger of driving while intoxicated (or under the influence) and it is considered a violent crime and the punishments served for such an infraction are quite severe and are structured to discourage this menace. Even so, day after day an innocent victim of drunk driving is either killed or severely injured by those drivers who choose to ignore the laws and place others and themselves in jeopardy.
