Representing Injured People

Holding Drunk Drivers Accountable For Their Actions

When someone decides to get behind the wheel of a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they are endangering not only their own life but the life of everyone around them. When a drunk driver’s actions result in you suffering serious injuries, you need someone at your side whom you can trust to fight for your recovery.

At The Law Offices of Mark D. VanCleave, PLLC, we are proud to be able to help clients throughout Texas with their personal injury needs. We know how to build a claim that can result in the compensation you deserve while holding drunk drivers accountable for their actions.

Drunk Driving Accidents Are More Common Than You Think

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that 33 percent of Americans will be in an accident caused by alcohol at some point during their life. In these cases, any driver who operates a vehicle under the influence should be held accountable for their actions if they cause an accident. These drivers are behaving negligently and therefore responsible for whatever damages they cause — these accidents can cause serious personal injury and even fatalities. In some cases, the bar or restaurant that served a drunk driver can also be held responsible for the injuries caused by this alcohol-related accident.

In such cases, you need representation you can count on. The Law Offices of Mark D. VanCleave, PLLC, can help you get justice and fair compensation for an accident caused by a drunk driver.

Building A Case That You Can Rely On

Though it may be clear to you that the driver who was drunk caused your accident, that may be harder to prove than you think. Even if the drunk driver is clearly at fault, you still need to prove their impairment was the cause of your accident. There are also a few instances in which fault and liability are not clear. It is possible that an insurance company could argue that both parties contributed to the accident, even if you were not responsible. This can reduce the compensation you receive.

However, an attorney with skill and experience, like Mr. VanCleave, can negotiate your case and help prove you were not at fault. A lawyer with a solid understanding of cases involving drunk drivers will help you evaluate your claim so you can be sure you will recover what you deserve.
