A jury recently acquitted a Texas father who had been charged with the shooting death of a drunk driver who had struck and killed the man’s two young sons.
While we may never know what really happened the night of the crash and subsequent shooting, we do know that many families are devastated by the loss of loved ones as a result or drunk driving—losses that sadly occur every day across the country.
Obviously, we would never condone anyone taking the law into their own hands. But we certainly understand the emotional pain and trauma that such a loss can cause—and the range of emotions including frustration and anger that victims of drunk driving crashes and their families often experience. These victims are eager for justice, and they deserve to get it.
There are legal resources and remedies available to assist and support drunk driving victims, and to help ensure they see the responsible parties face legal ramifications for their actions. However, for people who are dealing with the emotional and possibly physical fallout of a drunk driving crash, trying to navigate the legal system can be an additional challenge they may not have the strength to handle on their own.
These victims and their families need an attorney with experience representing drunk driving victims. That is one of our specialties here at the Law Office of Sara Powell, and we consider it a privilege to be able to assist these families in their quest for justice.
