Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer in Fort Worth
Get the compensation you deserve
The dangers of drinking and driving have been well documented for decades. But despite regular crackdowns on drivers who get behind the wheel after drinking too much alcohol, drunk driving accidents cause more injuries and fatalities in Texas than in any other state. Fort Worth, Dallas, and surrounding communities are no exception. When a driver’s intoxicated, he or she is at much higher risk of causing a serious, potentially fatal car crash. These drivers need to be held accountable for their reckless behavior.
Fort Worth drunk driving accident attorney Coby L. Wooten has worked diligently to bring drunk drivers to justice for two decades. He has fought for the rights of accident victims who’ve had their lives turned upside down after being hit by an intoxicated driver. These drivers cause approximately one-third of all car accident fatalities in Texas, not to mention a long list of car accident injuries that range from broken bones and fractures, to debilitating neck and spinal cord injuries, to traumatic brain injuries. Drunk drivers kill innocent people every day in Texas. That’s why we will fight so hard for you and your family.
Does car insurance cover drunk driving accidents?
The short answer is “yes,” but it depends on the situation. If the drunk driver is found at fault for the accident, then their liability insurance should cover your injuries. But even a drunk driver is not automatically at fault – you still need evidence to prove that their negligence caused your injuries.
Depending on the situation, you may have other options as well. You may have access to certain benefits through your own insurance company. You may also be able to pursue a “dram shop” claim against the bar or other establishment that served alcohol to the drunk driver. Because there are so many factors that can affect your recovery, there is no single average settlement for a drunk driving accident. The only way to know what your case is worth is to talk to an attorney with experience handling drunk driving claims.
