Memorial Day Weekend is here! In the interest of safety, we’d like to take the time to remind you to be extra careful if you plan on driving or being out on the lake. DUIs (driving under the influence) and BUIs (boating under the influence) dramatically increase around holidays and long weekends as people tend to consume more alcohol. With so many people planning to hit the road to visit family and friends, or go out on any of the many lakes we have in this area of Texas, it is important to remember to be a defensive driver and to stay away from alcohol if you plan on driving or boating.
Law enforcement will be increasing its efforts to identify and arrest DUI/BUI suspects, but nothing beats being aware of your surroundings and staying away from people who appear to be driving erratically. Remember, if you see or know of someone who is driving drunk, report it!
Your Rights as a DUI/BUI Victim
Every year, intoxicated drivers are responsible for causing thousands of preventable injuries and deaths, leaving innocent victims to bear the physical, emotional, and financial consequences of another person’s irresponsible behaviors. Accident victims may require costly medical care and may lose wages due to an inability to work during recovery. In severe cases, a person may lose their entire livelihood as a result of permanent disability post-accident, making it difficult to pay bills and take care of their family. In these cases, it is urgent to involve a personal injury attorney who can pursue maximum financial compensation from the responsible party.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a preventable accident caused by an intoxicated driver, you should immediately contact The Law Offices of Vic Feazell to schedule a free consultation with an Austin personal injury lawyer. The sooner you call, the sooner we can begin investigating your case and filing a claim on your behalf. Our nationally recognized firm works on a contingency fee basis, so there is absolutely no cost to you unless we make a recovery. You have nothing to lose!
Can’t make it to our office? We are more than willing to meet you in your home or in the hospital. No matter what you are facing, allow us to help you seek justice. We hope you don't have to call us this weekend, but in case you do, know that we're here to help.
