Vigorous Representation for Drunk Driving Accident Victims
Despite increasingly strict laws and enforcement, as well as a public awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence, Texas continues to lead the nation in drunk driving accidents and injuries and deaths caused by drunk driving. Driving while intoxicated is a crime, yet people choose to roll the dice every day and risk injuring or killing innocent people because of their decision to drink and drive or to drive while under the influence of medication or illegal drugs. We empathize with the pain and anger you feel if you have been injured or have lost a family member because of this senseless, selfish, grossly negligent, and malicious behavior.
We want you to have dedicated, highly effective representation in your quest for justice and financial compensation. To consult a trial-tested personal injury lawyer, please contact our law firm based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
Exhaustive Investigation of All Factors in Your Case
Our experience representing many victims of drunk driving accidents is an important asset; we fight to win maximum compensation for you. From day one, we will prepare your case for trial and position it for the most leverage and the best result.
In some drunk driving accident cases, it is not just the drunk driver who is to blame for the wreck. Oftentimes, an employer will put an employee behind the wheel without checking the driver's background for prior drunk driving convictions. In addition, far too many bars and restaurants will continue to serve alcohol to customers that are clearly intoxicated, then watching the customer get into his or her car and drive away intoxicated.
Our "dram shop" laws prohibit providers of alcohol from serving minors and persons who are clearly intoxicated. If you or a loved one have been injured by a drunk driver or a person who is driving under the influence of any drug or alcohol in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, be sure to call us to investigate your case to make sure that all of the responsible persons are held accountable.
Complete, Conscientious Client Service and Follow-through
We develop a strong relationship with our clients. In many situations, we continue to assist our clients in obtaining justice long after we have settled or gone to trial on the case. Particularly in cases where drunk drivers are involved or where the conduct affects our society, we try to obtain not only a financial recovery for our client, but also a change in our community by forcing those responsible to take action to change their procedures or to educate their employees and members on the dangers of these activities and to prevent other people from suffering a similar loss.
We provide our services on a contingency basis, collecting no fees unless we prevail in your case.
We also take our role as advocates for all Texans' safety very seriously. We collaborate with MADD in advocacy for harsh sentences reflecting the tragic consequences of drunk driving.
