Proving Negligence in a Drunk Driving Accident

As a Fort Worth personal injury lawyer, I consider drunk drivers to be some of the most irresponsible and reckless drivers on North Texas roads. Every week, terrible car wrecks are caused by motorists who are intoxicated. Frequently, these crashes result in severe injuries to the victims – whether they are occupants of another vehicle, or passengers in the drunk driver’s own car or truck.

 

If you or a member of your family has been injured due to the negligent actions of a drunk driver, then it is important that you are aware of your legal right to pursue damages to cover the cost of your accident-related medical care and other expenses, to reimburse you any lost wages or other income, and to compensate you for the very real pain and suffering that you have endured.

 

Winning Maximum Compensation After a Drunk Driving Accident

Car wrecks caused by drunk drivers are different from many other types of auto collisions, because it is very difficult for the insurance company to argue that their driver was innocent. In most cases, it is noted on the police crash report that they were drunk, and a lot of the time, they were actually arrested on a DWI charge.

 

However, this does not stop their insurance company from trying to argue that their insured was not entirely to blame. Remember, it is always the goal of the insurance adjustor to pay you as little money as possible. If they cannot successfully avoid accepting that their driver was at fault, they will try other unfair tactics against you, such as delaying your settlement payment in the hope that you either give up or miss an important deadline which could result in you forfeiting your right to compensation.

We Fight Insurance Companies

As mentioned in the previous section, insurance companies will try to pay the least amount of money possible to accident victims. Insurance companies are in the business of generating more money and revenue, all with the goal of increasing profit. This means that the insurance adjusters that are sent to evaluate the property damage and the injured person may return with giving the insurance company with a lower evaluation than normal. If this happens, and if you do not have an attorney to represent you, you may receive a lower amount of compensation than what you may actually deserve.

Don't let this happen to you. The attorneys at the Anderson Law Firm know very well how insurance companies work and that their real intentions are to increase their flow of money, which is why we know exactly how to fight them. Throughout the years, we have successfully represented numerous amounts of clients, and we have fought for the compensation they deserved.

It is extremely important that you always consult with an experienced Fort Worth car accident injury lawyer - even in cases which appear to be open and shut in terms of liability. The at-fault driver’s insurance company will never treat you fairly. If you have been hurt as the result of someone else’s recklessness, you deserve to have an advocate fighting on your behalf to ensure that you receive the full and fair compensation that you are entitled to under Texas law.
