Our San Antonio Car Accident Attorney Can Help You Seek Justice
Drunk driving accidents are a big problem in San Antonio and Texas. We’ve all heard the countless stories of tragedies that occur as a result of someone choosing to drive after having too much to drink. According to the latest statistics from the Texas Department of Transportation, in 2010, 1,075 deaths occurred as a result of a drunk driving accident. Drunk driving accidents in the same year were the direct cause of injuries to nearly 16,000 people. These are deaths and injuries that should not happen.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of a drunk driver, call The Aguirre Law Firm in San Antonio, Texas. We will assist you in making sure the drunk driver, or in some instances, the establishment that served the driver too many drinks, accountable. Unfortunately, insurance companies attempt to treat drunk driving accidents as ordinary accidents when it comes to determining how much compensation a victim should receive. This is grossly unfair. Juries do not like drunk drivers and hold them accountable. They do so in the form of large jury verdicts against drunk drivers. Don’t settle for just medical bills and property damage if you’ve been the victim of a drunk driver. You are entitled to much more. Call the San Antonio car accident lawyers at The Aguirre Law Firm and we strive to maximize your recovery.
In some instances, when serious injuries are involved, it may be possible to sue the restaurant or bar that served the drunk driver too many drinks. In Texas, this is called a dram shop case. The law prohibits establishments from serving patrons that are obviously intoxicated. If they do so, and the drunk patron gets behind the wheel and injures someone, the establishment may be held responsible.
Another common occurrence in drunk driving accidents is for the drunk driver to flee the scene after the accident. If this was the case in your accident, and you are wondering if you can still receive compensation, the answer is most likely yes! Contact our firm today to find out how we can help.
