A Widespread Problem

In the United States, drunk driving accidents are happing at an astonishing rate. Statistics now reveal that 2 out of every 3 Americans will be involved in an alcohol-related motor vehicle accident at some point in their lives.

Nationally auto accidents involving alcohol accounted for more than 10,142 deaths in 2019, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

Impairment Caused by Drinking and Driving

Drinking and driving impairs judgment and delays your reaction time. This can have severe and devastating consequences for other drivers on the road. When driving, you need to be able to react to the sometimes-unpredictable behavior of other drivers. When you cannot, or if you respond inappropriately, accidents occur and innocent drivers often suffer catastrophic injuries from drunk drivers.

Punishment for the Driver

If you have been hit by a drunk driver, the criminal court system punishes that driver for breaking the law and causing the accident. However, the criminal court does not compensate victims or their families.

If you or someone you love has been injured in an auto accident by a drunk driver, that reckless driver should be held responsible for your injuries.

You may be able to collect compensation for:

  • Hospital treatment
  • Ongoing medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Costs of your medication
  • Physical therapy or other rehabilitation costs
  • Lost wages and the inability to earn future wages
  • Property damage and repairs
  • Other out-of-pocket expenses

Be Wary of Insurance Companies

If you have been injured in a drunk driving accident, be careful not to speak to an insurance adjuster without first talking to a qualified Clear Lake Shores drunk driving accident attorney. Insurance companies will attempt to pay you as little as possible for your injuries and pressure you into agreeing to a fast, cheap settlement offer. Insurance representatives may try to call you, or even visit you in the hospital or stop by your house. You have no obligation to speak to them until you consult a lawyer.

Know Your Rights After a Car Accident

There are frequently criminal charges for drunk driving accidents, but these proceedings do not result in compensation for victims. However, when someone knowingly endangers life by driving while intoxicated, they are responsible for any and all damages that may occur as a result.

The only way to ensure you get fair compensation following a Clear Lake Shores drunk driving accident is with the help of an aggressive attorney. The drunk driving accident attorneys at our firm have years of experience helping victims of intoxicated drivers get justice. We are prepared to take your case as far as necessary to help you get the justice you deserve.

I used West & West for my personal injury claim - a slip and fall that involved a trip to the emergency room. Michael West was able to successfully get my medical bills paid and I walked away with money in my pocket. Both Michael and his paralegal were very helpful throughout the whole process.

West and West did an excellent job representing our family's estate settlement during the probate process. They are skilled, up to date, and were patient with us and the beneficiaries and helped us keep everything on track during our extended process. Laura and the others were always amazing with us too.

The employees here are all extremely kind and friendly, and they explain everything in a way that's easy to understand. Mr. & Mrs. West are some of the kindest people I've ever met. If I ever need a lawyer again, I have them on speed dial.

I enjoyed dealing with a local law firm with strong roots in the community. Probating my Uncle's Will was emotional and personal, but the staff made the process easier than I ever imagined. The process was smooth and easy. The care shown by the staff is knowledgeable and caring.
