Drunk Driving Accidents

San Antonio Drunk Driving Accident Injury Attorney

We Help You Recover Maximum Damages In DWI Injury Cases

Texas led the nation in drunk driving fatalities in 2009 and 2010. While the Texas criminal justice system arrests and convicts drunk drivers, victims and their families receive no compensation from a criminal case. To obtain fair compensation, you must either negotiate a favorable settlement with the drunk driver’s insurance company or pursue a civil lawsuit. A San Antonio drunk driving accidents attorney can protect your rights whether at the negotiating table or in a court of law. The Law Offices of Fidel Rodriguez, Jr., focuses our practice on accident and injury cases and has helped numerous people recover damages from drunk driving accidents.

Building A Case In A Drunk Driving Accidents

Drunk driving is a problem throughout the United States, and authorities generally prove drunk driving through the use of a blood alcohol content test registering at .08 percent or higher. Drinking and driving is a form of negligence under personal injury law, which means that the driver breached the duty of care owed to other drivers. All drivers owe other drivers a duty of care. They must obey traffic laws, try to avoid accidents and demonstrate a level of responsibility that a court would expect of reasonable drivers on the road. When our personal injury attorneys discover that your accident was caused by an intoxicated driver, this fact points to negligence and forms grounds for a civil case.

We carefully follow the drunk driver’s criminal case, noting evidence provided and the case’s progress. We investigate whether the driver has repeat driving while intoxicated (DWI) offenses, which helps us substantiate negligence. In addition to pursuing damages for medical costs, pain and suffering, and lost wages, we may be able to pursue punitive damages in extreme cases. Courts award punitive damages when actions are particularly flagrant and they want to send a strong message to deter future similar conduct.
