According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), about 35 percent of all fatal car accidents are caused by a driver who has a blood alcohol concentration level of 0.08 percent or higher. Also, the NHTSA found that in 2015, 10,265 people died and 290,000 people were injured in drunk driving accidents. With the prevalence of drunk driving accidents, it’s important to have a Dallas car wreck attorney that you can count on.
If you or a loved one were the victim of a car or truck accident involving a driver under the influence of alcohol, illegal or prescription drugs and/or marijuana, there is a greater likelihood that punitive damages will be imposed, which can increase the value of your claim.
During an investigation of a DUI or a DWI, it’s often found that liability will extend beyond just the drunk driver. Liability can involve a restaurant, a bar, or any other vendor that allowed the person to continue to drink despite already being intoxicated. If an establishment serves too much alcohol to a customer, it can be responsible for subsequent injuries or damages. Frenkel & Frenkel thoroughly investigates and evaluates all aspects of an accident to fully assess liability.
