Thousands of people are killed and many more are injured every year in accidents involving drunk
drivers. If you have been injured in an accident that is caused by a drunk driver in Arlington, the Barber
Law Firm can help you hold the driver accountable and financially responsible for your injuries.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 10,000 people are killed by drunk
drivers every year in the U.S. This occurs despite the facts that there are tough laws on the books that
severely punish drunk drivers, and the public has been well educated about the dangers of drinking and
driving for decades.
In some cases, after an accident involving a drunk driver in Arlington, the drunk driver does not receive a
citation for drunk driving. However, the individual can still be held liable in civil court. The fact that the
individual was drinking at the time of the accident may be used to prove that negligence occurred. An
experienced Arlington drunk driving injury attorney can help build a strong case against the drunk driver
by using police reports, eyewitness accounts, expert testimony, and more.
If you are able to prove that a drunk driver hit you, you are entitled to damages. Some common
damages include compensation for your medical expenses, time missed from work, rehab expenses, and
more. If you are in the Arlington area and you have been in an accident with a driver that you believe
was drunk, call the Arlington drunk driving accident attorneys at the Barber Law Firm at 972-231- 5800.
