Oklahoma City, OK -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/23/2014 -- Despite the fact that there were 10,322 drinking-and-driving related deaths in the United States in 2012, people still choose to get behind the wheel after drinking alcohol. This thoughtless action can and often does have serious consequences though. When those consequences involve innocent people getting hurt or dying, then it’s time to take action.
Drunk driving is negligent driving, and when accidents or injuries occur as a result of it, the driver can and should be held responsible. Fortunately, when in need of a car accident lawyer in OKC, residents can turn to Johnson & Biscone. This firm specializes in helping the victims of drunk driving related accidents to get the justice they deserve.
Of course, it would be better if no one was ever involved in drunk driving related accidents in the first place. It is for that reason that Johnson & Biscone is committed to educating people on the high prevalence of drunk driving and on how to minimize their risks.
The firm advises all people to:
- Exercise caution when driving late at night and to avoid driving late at night when possible
- Get away from drivers who are driving carelessly or appear intoxicated
- Call law enforcement when a negligent, possibly drunk driver is spotted
- Call an injury attorney right away when a drunk driving related accident occurs
- File claims for personal injuries or property damage immediately
Lawyers Johnson & Biscone are considered experts when it comes to drunk driving cases. Unfortunately, however, they often have a more difficult time helping clients who wait too long after the accident to seek help or who do not follow the above steps and tips. In order to have the highest chance of compensation for hospital bills, property damage, pain and suffering, and/or lost wages, victims should seek justice and legal help right away.
Those who call Johnson & Biscone soon after an accident are given a free consultation. During this consultation, the expert attorneys will review the details of the accident. If a case is warranted, they can then help with the claims filing process and can start building a case in the event that going to court becomes necessary.
In many instances, however, Johnson & Biscone are able to help deserving people get their funds without the stress of going to court. The firm is proud of the work it does helping the victims of drunk driving accidents, but it also encourages victims to do their part and help themselves.
