Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer
We demand justice for injury victims
The dangers of drinking and driving have been well-documented for decades. Even so, some drivers still get behind the wheel after they have had too much to drink. The result – serious car accidents caused by drunk drivers.
Accidents caused by drunk drivers can result in serious injuries. That’s because drunk drivers often don’t slow down before crashing into another car. In some cases, drivers under the influence (DUI) of alcohol might even fall asleep at the wheel and crash at high speed into another vehicle, resulting in serious injuries or even fatalities.

How we can help you
If a drunk driver crashes into your car, why would you need to hire a lawyer?
First, it’s important to remember that the police officer investigating your accident only cares about finding the facts associated with your drunk driving accident, not whether you’re fairly compensated for your crash. Law enforcement’s job is to prosecute drunk drivers, not to advocate for victims. Additionally, you and your family need to play your role at the criminal proceeding involving the driver if called upon by the police or court.
Second, the insurance company for the drunk driver who caused your crash has probably already started investigating your accident. That’s because they’re searching for any excuse to reduce or deny your accident claim.
Third, you only have a limited amount of time to take legal action after a car accident. This deadline – known as the statute of limitations – varies from state to state. And once the statute of limitations expires, you forfeit your right to take legal action and receive the money you rightfully deserve.
As your car accident attorney, we can aggressively investigate your accident, deal directly with the other driver’s insurance company on your behalf and make sure we meet all the necessary deadlines.
