Dallas Drunk Driving Accidents Lawyer
Fort Worth Car Accident Attorney
When an automobile accident claim is pursued against a drunk driver, there is a greater likelihood that punitive damages will be imposed. The driver who was smoking pot, abusing illegal or prescription drugs or driving under the influence of alcohol may be considered at least partially at fault even when a sober driver involved in the collision committed a traffic violation.
Who Supplied Beer, Wine or Drugs to the Person Who Caused the DWI Car Wreck?
An experienced car accident lawyer always investigates such issues as DUI/DWI charges or dram shop liability (when someone supplied alcohol to an intoxicated person who was later involved in an accident). An investigation of a DWI/DUI crash often reveals that the drunk driver is not the only responsible party. A vendor or bar or restaurant who enabled the person to continue to drink despite being clearly intoxicated (or even an under age drinker) may also be held to account for the tragedy.
Thorough Investigation is Crucial
All aspects of a car accident, including drunk driving, must be thoroughly investigated and evaluated in order to fully assess liability. Whether you believe you or the other driver was at fault in an accident, as a car accident victim you are well advised to seek experienced legal counsel sooner rather than later.

Were You the One Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol?
Perhaps you were the one who was driving under the influence of alcohol. It is important for you to know your rights and obtain any compensation that is due to you. Even if you think that your blood alcohol content, fatigue or cell phone usage will show that you caused the auto accident, you should talk to an attorney about how to obtain compensation for your own injuries.
