Wrongful Death Claims
Including surgical errors and failure to diagnose.
When intoxicated drivers get behind the wheel of a car, they’re not just taking their own life into their hands – they’re risking the lives of everybody else on the road. The reckless behavior and short-minded decisions they are choosing to make often times lead to catastrophic injuries, and frequently, death. If you or a family member has been injured by a drunk driver, you have the right to seek compensation. If you hire me as your attorney, I will work hard to ensure you obtain it.
At the Law Office of Charles Bryan Alred, P.C., you will get swift, responsive service to help you get what you need to cover medical costs and loss of wages, as well as recovery of costs due to vehicle damage. When a drunk driving accident has caused a fatal injury, I will be your advocate, relentless in seeking justice and compensation for surviving family members.
Beyond the driver, other parties may bear responsibility for damages in drunk driving accidents. Oklahoma dram shop law states that the liquor stores, bars or social hosts of a party or event in which alcohol was served may in some circumstances also be held liable. This is something few attorneys and legal counsel take into account when taking on a drunk driver case. I, personally, evaluate this as one of the first avenues of investigation into how this terrible, horrific incident happened.
The most important thing to know is that insurance companies will be quick to gather facts to minimize your claim. In other words, they will do all they can to pay you the least amount of money. That means the most important thing you can do is to get an experienced attorney as soon as possible – one who will fight for your rights as a working person with bills to pay and a family to support.
No matter what, the impaired driver who gets behind the wheel of a car is responsible for a pointless injury to an innocent person. There may also be other parties legally liable for the accident and resulting damages. In addition to recovering medical and personal property costs, you may also receive punitive damages for the driver’s gross negligence. Because drunk driving accidents can be complicated, you need the kind of clear and honest legal advice I have been providing to clients for over 25 years. Having the experience and expertise that I have built over the years is the defining factor in many of the cases I take on.
