A lawyer can assist with a lawsuit after a drunk driving accident

Despite drivers in Baton Rouge, throughout Louisiana and across the nation being aware and constantly reminded of the dangers of driving while intoxicated, people still do it.

With the decision to drive under the influence, there will inevitably be accidents. For people who have been injured in a car accident caused by a drunk driver, it is imperative to think about the future and consider a legal filing.
