Driving demands our full attention. Some drivers, however, devote their attention to everything but the road. People send or receive text messages, or even make Internet searches while driving. These behaviors impair a driver’s reaction time and can cause severe accidents. North Carolina has taken steps to crack down on distracted driving, making it illegal to text while driving. Although the dangers of drunk driving are well known, people continue to drive while impaired (DWI) by alcohol and other controlled substances. Drunk or distracted driving has no place on the road. If you have been injured in an automobile accident and the other driver was intoxicated or distracted, you need an attorney who will hold the other driver accountable for your injuries.
William Vasquez of Vasquez Law Firm, PLLC have represented injured people across North Carolina for nearly 10 years. We are prepared to take action in your serious injury claim.
After you have been seriously injured, it is important that your lawyer is able to locate every potential source of compensation to pay for your medical expenses, lost income and other damages. If you were injured by a drunk driver, you may be able to recover compensation from the bar or store that served the intoxicated driver. Under North Carolina’s dram shop law, if a bar, restaurant, liquor store or other institution that sells alcohol to someone who is obviously intoxicated, they can be held liable for your injuries. Our Charlotte drunk driving accident lawyers will undertake a complete investigation to find if the driver who caused your injuries was knowingly overserved.
Our tenacious, thorough approach regularly leads to positive outcomes for our clients in both settlement and trial.
