Austin Attorney for Drunk Driving Victims
Drunk driving is one of the primary causes of serious car accidents throughout the county. Although there are strict laws against drunk driving in the state, it is a serious problem that is unfortunately not taken seriously by many Texans. According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), in 2011, nearly 10,000 individuals were killed and approximately 350,000 were injured by drunk drivers. Although it is a common circumstance, our Austin personal injury lawyer at the Law Offices of Jay Doyle, P.C. understands that your case has caused you extensive pain and suffering and requires personalized attention.
Are you a drunk driving victim?
A conviction for driving under the influence (DUI) has severe penalties for the individual that caused the accident. Depending on the circumstances, it can lead to up to two years in jail and a license suspension of two years. Penalties can be greater when associated with an injury-causing accident. These penalties, however, cannot undo the damage caused or bring back the loved one that you may have lost to the accident. They also cannot end the pain and suffering you feel if you are the victim. You may be entitled to substantial damages for your lost wages and medical expenses, both current and future.
