Have You Been Injured By A Drunk Driver In Austin?

Austin Injury Attorneys Look Out For You

Austin is a city that works all day and parties all night. It’s one of the things that makes Austin a great place to live, but it has its dark side, too. Texas is a national leader in drunk driving fatalities, and nearly 40% of traffic deaths in Texas involve alcohol impairment. The vibrant night life in our city means that Austin plays an unfortunate role in these dismal statistics.

If you’ve been injured by a drunk driver in Austin, you’ve undoubtedly already spoken to the police. They have the job of collecting evidence to get that driver off the road, protecting society – but who looks out for your interests?

We do. We are the Austin Injury Lawyers. We have recouped millions of dollars in damages for people who’ve been injured in Austin, and we have consistently been ranked among top attorneys in the area by our peers.

If you’ve been hurt in a car accident and the other driver was intoxicated, here’s the good news:

  • The police have gathered solid evidence to prove the allegation of DWI
  • There’s no real question of whether the other driver was negligent when there’s clear evidence of impairment
  • Insurance companies know that when DWI is a piece of a case against them, they’re not likely to win. This can mean a faster resolution to your case, and an easier process for you and your family.

Get Started Right Away

Unfortunately, as you and your family deal with the aftermath of injuries, there’s also a clock ticking. The faster you bring in Austin Injury Lawyers to help recoup the losses you’ve sustained from another person’s reckless, negligent behavior, the better chance we’ll have of getting definitive witness statements, police accounts of the events, and other evidence that we’ll need to ensure your best interests are protected every step of the way.

You can’t start too soon. Call the Austin Injury Lawyers today for a free consultation with some of Austin’s top personal injury lawyers. When we talk, we can let you know specifically what materials you’ll want to hang onto, but for now, just use a notebook and record what you recall and what’s happening now. Especially focus on:

  • Photographs of the accident site, the vehicle in the aftermath, injuries you sustained, and other graphic evidence that can convey the severity of the event.
  • Conversations you have with police – when and where you spoke, to whom you spoke, any key points you recall from the conversation
  • Basic overview of the accident itself. It’s common for early memories of a traumatic event to be incomplete or jumbled, so it’s good to keep a log of your recollections. Over time, this can help you re-establish the sequence of events and understand the entirety of what’s happened.
