Dallas Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer
Drunk Driver Accident Victims & Liquor Liability in Texas
Alcohol is increasingly a factor in car and truck accidents in the Dallas / Fort Worth / Plano region. When drivers are tested for drugs or alcohol after an accident, a surprising number are found to be intoxicated, even when impairment wasn't suspected. That's why it's so important to dig deeper and thoroughly investigate every incident.
Texas law does not allow evidence of past drunk driving or drug use to be considered in a personal injury case unless you can prove the drunk driver was impaired at the time of the accident. That doesn't mean your lawyer shouldn't investigate the past actions of the driver who hit you. A thorough and experienced personal injury lawyer knows that it's important to look at every angle of a case.

Liquor Liability: Proving the Case for Alcohol Impairment
If a bar, restaurant, or even a party host served someone alcohol beyond the point of intoxication and they then are involved in a drunk driving accident with injuries, the establishment that served the alcohol can be held liable. These are called "dram shop" cases and involve liquor liability. The victim can seek compensation from the alcohol server as well as the drunk driver, but these are very hard to prove. That’s why seeking the help of a Dallas personal injury lawyer is so crucial.
As your advocates, Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP will seek results from any breathalyzer or blood test that may have been done at the scene or after the accident. New technologies have improved our ability to detect drug and alcohol use for many hours after use, but you need to work with experts who really understand what those tests mean.
At our firm, we work with the best toxicologists and medical experts available. We go beyond the face value results to look at how road conditions and other factors combined with alcohol impairment to cause or contribute to the drunk driving accident. You can be confident that Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP has the resources and experts you need to prove your case against a drunk driver.
