Have You Become the Victim of Drunk Driving in Dallas?
The Ramifications of a DWI Accident
It is illegal to drive with a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) level of .08 % or higher in the state of Texas. Anyone found to be operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol will be charged with a criminal offense. If you or a loved one has been injured by a drunk or impaired driver, you have the right to demand compensation for your injuries with the help of a personal injury attorney. Every year, drunken driving accidents are responsible for a shocking number of deaths and severe injuries.
Although it is commonly known that drunk driving is against the law and is dangerous, many individuals continue to do it and thereby put the lives of everyone on the road in danger. Thousands of people lose their lives every year in accident caused by intoxicated drivers. In addition to criminal penalties, those who have injured another individual while driving under the influence could be sued in civil court by the injured individual in order to obtain compensation. When the accident victim does not survive, his or her family can bring a wrongful death claim against the responsible party.
The obvious negligence involved in drinking and driving may lead many to believe that an attorney is not necessary. If you are seriously injured due to the reckless driving of an impaired driver, it is even more important that you have someone at your side that can fight for your full and fair compensation. Insurance companies will attempt to lessen the amount of compensation that you receive. Our seasoned attorney can protect your right to be reimbursed for damages and thus prevent future financial problems.
