Texas Drunk Driver Causes Wreck–and Pays for It.

If you ask a random Texas car wreck attorney, you will likely hear a common theme: most automobile collisions are not caused by accidents. In most automobile collision investigations, the root cause of the collision can be traced to some conscious act or willful conduct that resulted in the collision– driver inattention, texting while driving, driving too fast, etc. The end result (the collision) may not be the intent. But that does not necessarily classify the event as an “accident”. Consider the case of a drunk driver.

Recently, The Flowers Law Firm resolved our clients’ claim involving a drunk driver. This particular drunk driver had previously been arrested for driving while intoxicated on a prior occasion (along with a variety of other criminal conduct). On the night of their collision, our clients were alert enough to take some evasive actions that ultimately saved their lives. However, our clients’ truck was totaled and both were severely injured requiring months of follow up treatment and significant damage to their business and income.

Our client recently posted a very flattering review on the legal website, (see review HERE).

Our Tyler car wreck attorney believes in investigating the root cause of every automobile collision. Not every wreck involves a drunk driver or even an arrest. Ultimately, determining the true cause of an injury requires an experienced Texas car wreck attorney to do the work, work with the clients, and gather the evidence necessary to determine who was truly at fault.

That is one reason The Flowers Law Firm offers a free consultation for any person injured in a Texas car wreck. As our client noted, we will even drive to meet with potential clients in some circumstances– from Tyler to Houston, from Dallas to Texarkana and Carthage, and all of the towns in between and throughout East Texas.
