Shreveport Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer
Information & Guidance for Victims of Drunk Driving
Almost half of all fatalities in drunk driving accidents in our state are
alcohol related. Drunk drivers have a slower reaction time and when it
comes to driving a vehicle weighing, at the minimum, 1-2 tons, a few seconds
can make a huge difference. In addition to slow reaction time, impaired
judgment and focus can result in an inability to read and respond to the
signs on the road.
Some of the things that can go wrong and cause an accident include:
- Running stop signs
- Running red lights
- Reckless lane changing

Compensation to those affected by the recklessness of another should represent
the degree of harm.
There are many types of injuries that can be the result of a drunk driving
car accident, for instance:
- Spinal cord injuries can result in partial or full paralysis
- Brain injuries can severely affect the quality of life
- Broken bones interrupt one's life for months or longer
These injuries interfere with one's ability to earn a living and cause
medical costs to skyrocket. We have handled many cases like this and seen
them through to the best possible result for our clients. It is vitally
important to act quickly following the accident, and all evidence to support
your claim should be carefully preserved.
