Fatal Alcohol Car Accident Attorney-Dallas/Fort Worth Texas
Despite decades of public education efforts, alcohol related car accidents (DWI) are distressingly common. Federal statistics show that in 2008, about a third of all Americans killed in car accidents were taken by fatal alcohol car accidents. That’s one fatal drunk driving accident every 45 minutes — all of which could be prevented by more responsible behavior. Drivers who choose to get behind the wheel while intoxicated put every innocent motorist around them in grave danger.
After the loss of a loved one or a catastrophic injury in an alcohol driving accident, nobody is thinking about money. But as time goes on, victims of alcohol related car accidents often realize that money is a serious issue. For severely injured people, the road to recovery is long and filled with medical needs, some of which are long-term or ongoing. Victims of a fatal alcohol car accident may face medical costs as well, along with funeral bills. This can put serious strain on an ordinary family, heaping money worries on top of the shock and pain of the injury itself.

An alcohol driving accident lawsuit offers victims and families an opportunity to send these bills back where they belong — to the irresponsible driver who caused them. It can also help them win financial compensation for their injuries, physical and emotional pain, a permanent disability or the loss of a loved one. Auto insurance for the at-fault driver should cover these costs, but frequently, the insurance company won’t offer a fair settlement until forced to by litigation.
Additionally, there are usually prosecutions associated with the people who cause accidents and are charged with being intoxicated or under the influence. I have experience with prosecutors and the state’s attorney and we will help negotiate and represent the injured party to make sure that their injuries and the damages are made aware to the prosecution. That they are taken into consideration as to any punishment for a crime and help in any way to ensure that our clients feelings are addressed.
