Car Accidents Caused by Drunk Drivers
Have you been injured in a car accident caused by a suspected drunk driver? Call the Car Wreck Cowboy today at 855-COWBOY9 to learn how we can help.
While countless awareness campaigns have told us over and over to never drink and drive, drunk driving accidents still account for 28 percent of all traffic-related deaths in the United States [CDC]. That works out to one fatality every 50 minutes, nonstop, 365 days a year. These statistics mean little to the families already experiencing the pain and frustration that comes with a serious injury or wrongful death, and our law firm understands that.
Insurance companies are only looking out for their bottom line, and they will often use the fact that the other driver was impaired to quickly (and wrongly, I might add) deny any and all liability for the crash due to “intentional conduct.” They will lie to your face, needlessly delay, and use every trick in the book to convince you that they have your best interests at heart. They don’t.
The only one looking out for you right now is you. You have every right to allow the insurance company to have the upper hand and run you through their convoluted claims process, but you also have the option to have an attorney to challenge the insurance company at no out-of-pocket cost to you.

Our accident lawyers work on a no-win no-fee basis and are available 24 hours a day at 1-855-269-2699 for a free consultation.
Liquor Liability Laws
When it comes to a drunk driving accident where somebody is injured or killed, liability is not always as straight-forward as it may seem. While it’s obvious that the drunk driver is criminally liable for any accidents and/or injuries they cause, when it comes to civil liability (i.e., a personal injury claim or lawsuit), those who irresponsibly provided alcohol to said driver may also be held liable under what are referred to as “dram shop” laws.
Dram shop laws are in no way meant to deflect blame away from the drunk driver. In reality, they simply allow victims to hold all responsible parties liable for their portion of fault. Bars, clubs, and restaurants alike must adhere to specific guidelines when it comes to the responsible service of alcohol. If they fail in this responsibility and someone is injured or killed as a result, they can (and should) be held accountable for their negligence by law firms like ours.
