Houston DUI Victims Attorneys
Thousands of drivers take to the roads and highways every day in Houston. While most drivers exercise caution and obey the rules of the road, there are some drivers who blatantly disregard the safety of other motorists. Specifically, drivers who choose to take the wheel of a vehicle while intoxicated can cause serious and even life-threatening accidents. Unfortunately, accidents involving drunk drivers happen far too often in the Houston area.
At Williams Kherkher, our Houston legal team believes that these reckless drivers should be held responsible for the pain and suffering victims sustain in these tragic accidents. Our attorneys understand how devastating these collisions can be and are dedicated to helping victims design an aggressive legal strategy for their specific case.
Effects of Drunk Driving
Individuals who drive drunk often convince themselves that they are fully capable of operating a vehicle. In reality, drunk driving can cause individuals to execute a number of extremely dangerous driving behaviors including:
- Running Red Lights or Stop Signs
- Ignoring Traffic Signals
- Changing Lanes without Looking
- Weaving/Swerving between Lanes
- Overly Aggressive Driving
- Failure to use Headlights or Turn Signals
- Falling Asleep Behind the Wheel
These behaviors, among others, exhibited by drunk drivers can cause catastrophic accidents. Accidents resulting from these actions can leave victims to deal with extensive medical bills, lost wages, and painful injuries, to no fault of their own.
Potential Damages of Drunk Driving Accidents
After being struck by a drunk driver, the law entitles you to pursue compensation from the negligent party for your injuries and other expenses. While a lawsuit may be the last thing on your mind, it is often necessary to take action as quickly as possible in order to offset the costs associated with an accident. A possible list of damages you may be able to be financially compensated for include:
- Pain and Suffering
- Past and Future Medical Costs
- Physical Rehabilitation Costs
- Damage to Your Vehicle
- Lost Wages
- Loss of Future Earnings
Drivers on the road have a responsibility to drive safely and be cautious of other drivers. When people disregard this, one of the most dangerous acts a person can commit is driving while intoxicated. Driving is already a dangerous activity without the added risk of impairment from alcohol, far too often resulting in severe accidents that cause life-changing injuries and, in the worst cases, wrongful death. The Houston lawyers at Williams Kherkher believe that drunk driving should not be tolerated under any circumstances. Let us put our experience to work for you and help you receive the valuable legal advice you need.
