Hit by a Drunk Driver? Contact Us
We do not treat drunk driving cases as “accidents”. Drunk driving collisions are set into motion long before the intoxicated driver's vehicle strikes another vehicle or a pedestrian. They start when an impaired driver gets behind the wheel of a car and puts others in danger. Despite the well-publicized dangers, drunk driving is still a serious problem throughout the country. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for drunk drivers to collide with drivers or pedestrians due to delayed reaction time or blurred vision. If you or a loved one was injured in an auto accident caused by a drunk driver, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with a drunk driving accident lawyer at our firm today.

Most people equate impaired driving with alcohol, but there are many other intoxicants that can impair an individual's ability to safely drive. Substances such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin or powerful prescription drugs can limit a driver's reaction time or impair his or her perception of the road.
If you were severely injured in an accident caused by the negligence of another driver, it is important that you speak with a drunk driver accident attorney. We can provide an honest assessment of the strength of your case.
