Drunk Driving Lawyer in Sugar Land
Who represents the victims of drunk drivers?
For many years now, law enforcement officials and other interested groups have been on a campaign to reduce incidents of driving while intoxicated or DWI. Although the penalties for DWI can be harsh, too many individuals and those responsible for serving alcohol to them, ignore the laws resulting in personal injury and wrongful deaths. If you or a loved one have been the victim of a drunk driver, it is vital that you be represented by a competent and experienced Sugar Land personal injury attorney. It can make all the difference in recovery of damages for those involved in the incident.
Insurance companies can be made to pay for immediate medical costs or vehicle replacement when pressed to do so. Who, however, looks after the victims when they have long-term medical conditions or rehabilitation and are unable to work? At our firm, Attorney Carlos A. León has 22 years' worth of hard-won experience in personal injury cases, resulting in over 50 million dollars in settlements for his clients. If you have been injured in a DWI accident, we want you to have confidence that we can aggressively fight for just compensation on your behalf.
Dram Shop Laws in Texas
In our state, we have what is called the "dram shop" law. This law concerns itself with those who sell or serve alcohol to a person who is noticeably intoxicated and represents an obvious danger to himself or others. Under the dram shop law, bartenders, private parties, vendors at sporting events, restaurant owners and others can be held legally liable for their actions that lead to injuries and fatalities.
An important beginning to your case is to swiftly gather evidence and potential witnesses while the incident is still fresh in their minds. Credit card bills, bar tabs, video footage and skillful interviews can all paint an accurate picture of what occurred and who is responsible. Knowledge of what information to look for and how to correctly obtain it are invaluable in DWI related accidents. Armed with the evidence, we work to pursue full and just compensation for the damage that has been done.
