Seeking Compensation For Drunk Driving Accident Victims
Even a small amount of drugs or alcohol can impair a person’s ability to drive safely. If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone who was impaired by alcohol or drugs, contact an experienced lawyer for a free initial consultation.
At Leonard B. Gabbay, P.C. in Austin, Texas, we represent victims of alcohol- and drug-related accidents. Even if an impaired driver avoids criminal prosecution, the introduction of drugs or alcohol into a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit can be a factor for a jury when determining how much compensation to award the injured drunk driving victim.
Texas civil accident reports contain a check box for the officer to indicate if he or she suspects the driver had been drinking. If the “had been drinking” box is checked, we will obtain the form and present it as well as other evidence that our investigation uncovers to a jury.
