Few things are as irresponsible as getting behind the wheel of a car after drinking. Unfortunately, drunk driving occurs on a regular basis in Texas and throughout the United States. While many attorneys make their living by representing the reckless drivers in criminal court, our firm believes that the victims of such a crime should also be protected in civil court. Dan Christensen is a former prosecuting attorney who has previously held drunk drivers responsible through the criminal system and he now holds them accountable on the civil side. If you have been the victim of a drunk driver, then contact our office today to speak with our Austin injury lawyers.
Austin personal injury attorney representing drunk driving victims in lawsuits
Most Austin car accident cases are the result of negligence. Drunk driving, however, is a reckless behavior which creates a more likely risk of serious injuries such as head trauma, spinal injury, paralysis, or even wrongful death. When bringing suit against such a driver, it is often necessary to request punitive damages (which are meant to punish the other side) as well as a request for compensatory damages (which are meant to compensate for the harm done to the victim). Hiring the right attorney can make the difference in the extent to which the Plaintiff recovers damages.
Dan assists the victims of DWI cases in recovering compensation for their injuries. Once retained, we will immediately obtain the police reports. We will also obtain records such as breathalyzer results and blood tests to show that the driver was impaired. We will also closely monitor any criminal proceedings so that liability can be quickly established. We understand that the victim of such a crime has been wronged. We will focus on the legal aspect so that the victim can focus on the important business of getting life back on track. Our personal injury attorneys are ready to assist you. Call today. In addition to Austin, we also service Travis County cities which include Rollingwood, Round Rock, Elgin, Jonestown, Manor, Bee Cave, Lago Vista, Sunset Valley, Lakeway, Creedmoor, the Williamson County cities of Georgetown, Cedar Park, and Leander, as well as other areas of Texas.
