Drunk Driving


It isn’t illegal for adults to consume large amounts of alcohol. The fine line between the law and a criminal action is crossed when an inebriated person decides to operate a vehicle. Every year, thousands of Americans are injured or killed on American roads. A large portion of these victims are injured or lose their lives due to the irresponsible actions of a drunk driver. Losing a family member in this manner can be devastating. Although the responsible party has committed a criminal offense, it’s possible to pursue monetary damages through civil court.

For a survivor, injuries sustained from an alcohol-related accident can be severe and debilitating. Months or years of therapy and doctor’s visits can result in mounting medical costs that a victim should not have to pay. This is where a highly-skilled personal injury attorney, such as one from the J. Gonzalez Law Firm of McAllen, can help. The monetary awards granted by a court or jury can assist paying for your recovery process.
