Drunk Driving Truck Accidents Lawyer
There are more than 3.5 million truck drivers crossing the country day in and day out. While many of these drivers perform their jobs responsibly and without incident, unfortunately, far too many truck drivers try to perform their jobs while intoxicated – a potentially fatal combination. Intoxicated truck drivers have the potential to cause accidents and injuries that are nearly unavoidable to other innocent drivers on the road due to the sheer size of 18-wheelers and semi-trucks.

Compensation may be available to cover a number of consequences of a drunk driving accident, including medical expenses, vehicular property damages, and lost wages, and our legal team is prepared to help you fight for this much-needed financial assistance.
Truck Accidents caused by Intoxication
While most people use the term “drunk driving” as a catch-all for different types of impairment, there are several different types of intoxication that can make truck drivers a danger on the road. At the Patino Law Firm, we are prepared to defend individuals who have been injured in truck accidents caused by a driver who was:
- Driving while intoxicated
- Driving on drugs
Both of these types of impairment can cause serious accidents, and if you have been affected by either of these types of impaired driving, you may be entitled to compensation.
