Were You Injured In An Accident Caused By A Drunk Driver?
If a drunk driver causes an accident or collision that injures someone, chances are that he or she has done it before. By running a background check on the driver, you can often find patterns of behavior. Those patterns can make a powerful impact on a jury. A history of drunk driving exposes such a driver, or his or her employer, to greater liability and possibly punitive damages.
At The Law Offices of Randall D. Moore, PLLC, we are committed to protecting the rights of people who have been injured by drunk drivers. We represent clients throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and north Texas.
Holding Drunk Drivers Accountable
In one of the cases we handled, the driver tried to leave the scene of the accident but could not due to damage to his vehicle. He also tried to switch seats with the passenger. Police arrested him and found out that he had three prior DUI/DWI convictions.
To the average person serving on a jury, it is infuriating that someone can have three priors and still be on the road. Juries don’t like drunk drivers and often award punitive damages to the victims. The videotape of the arrest often makes good show and tell in the courtroom.
It’s not unusual for drunk drivers to drive without a license and without insurance. In cases like these, we will pursue all possible sources of compensation. These sources may include the personal assets of the drunk driver and your own coverage for uninsured and underinsured motorists. If a bar or restaurant served alcohol to the driver when he or she was already intoxicated, the establishment may be responsible under our state’s dram shop liability laws.
