Southeast Texas Drunk Driving Accident Lawsuits
Because drunk driving accident claims can include awards for punitive damages, insurance companies tend to approach them in much the same way as with large commercial vehicle accidents—aggressively and with no-holds barred.
At Clay Dugas & Associates, we handle drunk driving accidents and Dram Shop cases in the Beaumont area and throughout the Southeast Texas, Southwestern Louisiana region. If you have been injured as the result of an alcohol-related crash or have recently lost a family member after a collision with a driver who was over the legal limit, we have the kind of experience and resources that can get you results.
Because critical evidence may be lost or degraded after even just a few short days, it is important to hire an attorney as soon after the accident as possible. Tire marks and roadside debris need to be documented ASAP. Witnesses at the scene, and anywhere the person had been drinking beforehand, need to be contacted and interviewed while their memories are still fresh. Official accident reports need to be examined and any inconsistencies promptly investigated. The vehicles involved need to be preserved and accident reconstruction needs to start right away. A failure to do any of these things can irreparably damage possible claims.
We will respond immediately to your initial call and begin working to protect your interests right away. As a client, you will work closely with your attorney and be kept fully informed and involved in the case as it progresses. And while we are always aggressive in trying to resolve cases as quickly as possible—we want to make certain that the case is handled correctly as well.
