DWI Accident Lawyers Serving Texas and Nationwide
While any car or auto accident can have negative consequences, accidents that are caused by drunk drivers often involve much greater emotional devastation. A car accident that was caused by bad weather, an auto defect or an inattentive driver is accidental and without any malice involved. A drunk driver, on the other hand, makes a choice to drink and drive, which puts the health and lives of everyone else on the road at risk.
People who drive drunk and end up hurting or killing an innocent driver as a result should be held financially responsible for damage caused by their actions. At the Edwards Law Firm, our Texas attorneys represent those harmed in drunk driving accidents as well as the families of those killed in these devastating accidents. Since 1962, our firm has been dedicated to protecting the rights and health of our clients in every case.
Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys in Corpus Christi
Those injured in drunk driving accidents are innocent people who are driving to their homes, jobs, schools and other places without thinking that they might end up in an accident because of someone else's negligence. Because drunk driving accidents are seen as more preventable than other car accidents, more significant justice may be levied against a drunk driver.
This justice can include normal compensation for medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. It can also go beyond compensation into punishment, however, and include punitive damages, especially in cases of wrongful deaths.
