Drinking and driving can result in car accidents that cause serious or even fatal injuries on roads in Texas. Despite being entirely preventable, these accidents are all too common, since some drivers will disregard common sense and drive after consuming alcohol or drugs. Drinking and driving impacts decision making and the ability to focus on others who are sharing the road.
As an El Paso drunk driving accidents attorney at the Law Office of Douglas C. Smith, I have the experience to handle personal injury claims for clients throughout west Texas. I will investigate the accident, help you recover the compensation you deserve and will work to hold the drunk driver accountable.
As a Texas personal injury attorney, I know that it is important to pursue claims against drunk drivers. However, sometimes insurance proceeds following an accident are not enough to cover your medical bills, especially when a catastrophic neck, spinal cord or head injury is the result.
It may be possible to hold a bar or a restaurant owner legally responsible for the damage caused by a drunk driver if the establishment served too many drinks or continued to serve a person who was clearly intoxicated. I will thoroughly investigate your accident claim to ensure that all responsible parties are held accountable, and to help you get the full and fair compensation you need to move forward with your life.
Tragically, many accidents involving drunk drivers result in fatalities for innocent victims. I can help grieving family members file a wrongful death claim. I understand that no amount of compensation can make up for the loss of a loved one. However, we can send a message that irresponsible and reckless behavior will not be tolerated.
