Lafayette Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer
Aggressive Advocacy To Hold Drunk Drivers Accountable
In Louisiana, those who have a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or more are considered legally drunk and thus unfit to drive. Far too often, however, people misjudge the effect of alcohol on their systems, and believe they are fine to drive themselves home after a night out. Drunk drivers can put others on the roadway in very real danger of personal injury or wrongful death.
If you were seriously injured by a drunk driver or lost a loved one as a result of a drunk driving accident, the law office of Chris Villemarette, Trial Lawyer, is on your side. We provide aggressive advocacy in seeking the compensation you deserve for your injuries and losses. From our office in Lafayette, we represent the victims of drunk driving accidents and their families throughout the surrounding areas of Louisiana.

Experienced Louisiana DUI-Related Crash Attorney
Under Louisiana state personal injury laws, victims of drunk driving accidents may be entitled to seek additional punitive damages beyond statutory compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. However, proving that your injuries were the result of a driver’s alleged intoxication can be difficult, especially in cases where Breathalyzer or blood tests were not obtained.
Our Lafayette drunk driving accident attorney has experience navigating the challenges and issues that can arise in proving drunk driver negligence. He will closely monitor any criminal DUI proceedings that may be related to your case in order to maximize the compensation to which you are entitled. He is also fully prepared to protect your rights in negotiations, in court or on appeal, if necessary.
