Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer
Distracted Driving Is On The Rise
Despite stricter laws, and increased efforts to enforce them, drunk driving and texting while driving continue to be responsible for the majority of motor vehicle accidents in Massachusetts. This irresponsible behavior on the part of drivers, places people’s lives in jeopardy.
At the Law Offices of Steven T. Snow, we help the victims of accidents caused by drunk driving and texting while driving hold drivers accountable for their negligent and reckless actions. Attorney Steven Snow has more than 25 years of experience in filing bodily injury and personal injury claims, and wrongful death lawsuits, for motor vehicle accident victims and their families. With wide-ranging knowledge of the many facets these cases present, and a willingness to engage expert testimony and take cases to trial, Attorney Snow has helped hundreds of people receive maximum compensation for their injuries.
Hold Drunk Drivers Accountable for Their Actions
In addition to criminal charges, drunk drivers can be taken to civil court and sued for causing bodily or personal injuries. Personal injury cases typically involve two separate issues; establishing liability for the accident, and determining the amount of monetary damages to which a victim is entitled. In many cases, the drunk driver will admit liability for the accident to avoid taking the witness stand which then turns our focus, and that of our client, to assessing the damages owed as related to the extent of the injuries.
As a car accident lawyer, Attorney Steven Snow provides his clients with aggressive representation during personal injury trials. He often consults experts in accident reconstruction, and medical, vocational and economics experts, to testify about the nature and circumstances surrounding your injuries and how much they may be worth. He has established himself as a skilled courtroom litigator and fierce advocate for his clients.
As a trial draws to a close, just prior to closing arguments, judges often provide the jury with a Verdict Slip that contains a list of questions that require either a “Yes” or “No” answer. Common questions on verdict slips include:
- Was the defendant negligent?
- Was the defendant’s negligence a substantial contributing factor in causing the plaintiff’s injuries?
- What amount of money will fairly and adequately compensate the plaintiff?
Because he invests so much time and so many resources in each of his cases, Attorney Snow is adept at convincing a jury that the driver’s negligence caused your injuries and that you deserve the maximum amount of available compensation.
