As many personal injury attorneys in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex know, being involved an injured victim of a drunk driving accident that was caused by the negligent actions of someone else can be tedious and frustrating. As injured victims, things may suddenly have gotten confusing and painful, especially by dealing with the medical bills and the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Having no fault whatsoever for the car accident, somebody else decided to drive while intoxicated, which is clearly an illegal act. The very act of driving intoxicated is an extremely gross act of negligent action, and we strongly believe that every case involving drunk drivers have a higher worth than normal car wreck cases (although every car accident is treated with the same level of care and attention it rightfully deserves). Personal injury attorneys are very good in persuading insurance companies of the true value of situations involving drunk driving.
Proving Who’s At-Fault in a DWI Car Wreck
To be successful and win the maximum amount of compensation that our clients deserve, we follow the proceedings of the criminal court very closely, making sure that we obtain any and all relevant information used in the criminal procedure that can benefit our civil, personal injury case. The type of evidence that we used includes the use of photographs, videotape footage from the vehicle’s camera, booking footage, and any criminal records that would place the at-fault driver as responsible for causing the accident. Though a collection of many of these types of evidence, we are able to successfully convince the insurance company (and the jury) that the driver who caused the accident was in fact intoxicated when the wreck occurred. Even if the other party attempts to go around the conviction of drunk driving by admitting that they were responsible for the wreck, we are still very successful in gathering evidence of the drunk driving conviction.
We strongly believe that personal injury cases involving drunk drivers are very well worth the maximum quantity of the drunk driver’s insurance. Regardless whether the injuries were serious or not, we believe that the consequences of drunk driving must be taken seriously. Everything must be done to bring the seriousness of drunk driving incidents to light.
