Victims of DWI in Fort Worth

Accidents resulting from drivers operating under the influence of alcohol claim approximately 30 lives per day. During 2010, the Centers for Disease Control reports that a total of 10,228 people were killed as a result of motor vehicle accidents involving an alcohol-impaired driver. Fortunately, most auto accidents are not fatal, but injured victims will benefit from consultation with an experienced personal injury lawyer who can present options which will help reduce risks such as large medical bills and lost wages. The personal injury attorneys at Zinda Law Group have the experience and know-how needed to guide accident victims through the confusing maze of insurance claims, accident reports and medical expenses. As a Better Business Bureau-accredited business, Zinda Law Group have earned the trust and respect of both their clients and their peers. It’s important for all drivers to be aware of the steps that should be taken following an accident that involves an alcohol-impaired driver. Contacting law enforcement authorities as soon as possible after the accident is crucial, even if the accident does not appear to be serious. It is important for law enforcement officers to respond quickly and preserve evidence at the scene. Having law enforcement officers on the scene as soon as possible will also allow potential witnesses to better recall the details of the accident while it is still fresh in their minds. Every potential witness should be encouraged to remain on the scene until law enforcement arrives. In some cases, there may be little or no damage to vehicles involved in an accident, but that is not a reliable indicator as to whether or not any injuries were sustained as a result. The lack of damage to vehicles involved may be used by some insurance companies to argue that no injuries were sustained. These are the kinds of tactics that an experienced personal injury lawyer knows how to deal with. It is also important to contact a personal injury lawyer who can advise you regarding your rights and your eligibility for compensation. Although automobile insurance should provide adequate coverage in most cases, only guidance from an experienced attorney can ensure that you receive the compensation and justice you deserve. Injuries associated with automobile accidents vary significantly and may be as minor as a small scratch or bruise, or as serious as paralysis, even death. The need for prompt medical treatment in case of injury is obvious, but the benefit of consulting with a seasoned personal injury lawyer should not be overlooked. The advice that’s available from experienced attorneys like those at Zinda Law Group can mean the difference between receiving minimal compensation from an insurance company or receiving fair and adequate compensation that will help alleviate your concerns over medical expenses, lost wages and motor vehicle replacement costs. If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident involving a driver who was under the influence of alcohol, call the team at Zinda Law Group toll free at (800) 836-5312 as soon as possible to ensure that you are protected and receive the compensation you truly deserve.
