Knox County Drunk Driver Liability Lawyer

Campbell County Drunk Driver Liability Lawyers

Attorney for Car Accidents Caused by Driving Under the Influence in Knoxville, Maryville, and Karns

Some car accidents are almost unavoidable. Icy roadways, for example, could cause a crash despite the best efforts of the drivers involved. Other accidents are preventable because they are the result of negligence on the part of at least one driver. Speeding, cell phone distractions, and the failure to obey traffic signals are examples of such negligence. Drunk driving accidents are also completely preventable, because they are the result of willful actions by the drunk driver. He or she chose to get behind the wheel after having too much to drink.

At The Law Office of William F. Evans, we aggressively represent the interests of those who have been injured by drunk drivers. If you or someone you love was involved in a drunk driving accident, we will work to get you compensation so that you can begin putting your life back on track.

The Presumption of Liability in Tennessee

Driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) is against the law in Tennessee. This means that in most situations, the drunk driver is presumed to be liable for causing the accident and for any injuries sustained in the crash. This presumption of responsibility, however, does not mean that it will be simple for you to recover the compensation you deserve. It is not uncommon for insurance companies to challenge the extent of the injuries you have suffered or to attempt to shift some of the blame for the crash to you. Sometimes, the insurers will simply delay or fail to pay valid claims.

Depending on the unique details of your situation, there could be several other liable parties in addition to the drunk driver. For example, Tennessee law provides that if a bar or restaurant continued to serve a “visibly intoxicated person” who goes on to cause a drunk driving accident, the establishment could share in the liability for the accident.

Putting the Pieces Together

Attorney William Evans understands the importance of acting quickly following a drunk driving accident. We will go right to work in conducting a full investigation of the crash and the circumstances that led to it. Our firm will identify any and all parties who may share responsibility for the accident and start building a case to hold them each accountable for their role in causing your injuries.

From the moment you call our office, you become an integral and valued part of our team. At our firm, you are always more than a number or the name on an accident report. You are a real person with real problems and real needs. We will listen closely to you so that we can understand how your injuries have affected you and your family. Our firm will negotiate aggressively with defendants and their insurance companies in pursuit of a just settlement, but we will be preparing for trial in the meantime. This approach has allowed us to secure favorable outcomes for many clients throughout the region, and we are prepared to go to work on your behalf.
