Lake Charles Drunk Driving Accidents Lawyer

It is difficult when a loved one is seriously injured in a car accident. It can be more difficult when the at-fault driver was behind the wheel of a car or truck while under the influence of alcohol.

At the Hale Law Firm, our experienced attorneys have handled thousands of personal injury cases and realize the pain drunk driving accidents cause. We aggressively pursue our clients’ right to compensation and work hard to ensure they receive the maximum amount they are entitled to under the law. We realize that replacing lost wages and recovering money to pay for medical expenses is vital to anyone’s recovery.

Since 1977, we have obtained significant settlements and million dollar verdicts on behalf of our clients, and we are ready to put our experience to work for you and your family. Contact our personal injury lawyers online today, or call 337-426-1071, toll free at 877-596-5155, to schedule a free initial consultation to share your story.

40 Years of Combined Experience Resolving Drunk Driving Car Accident Claims

In Louisiana, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that more than 220 people are killed in drunk driving crashes annually. In addition, there are hundreds (if not thousands) more alcohol-related car accidents, many of them causing serious, life-threatening injuries.

Our firm’s goal is to help every drunk driving accident victim obtain the justice he or she deserves and the compensation he or she needs. You should not be responsible for covering the cost of your injuries when another individual was negligent and drove his or her vehicle while intoxicated. Speak with our firm today if you or a loved one suffered any of the following injuries because of a drunk driver:

  • Broken bones or fractures
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Severe scarring or lacerations
  • Nerve or spinal cord damage
  • Paralysis
  • Wrongful death
