$130,000 Settlement in Drunk Driving Crash Case

The Loewy Law Firm has secured a $130,000 settlement for the family of a young man killed by a drunk driver in Austin, Texas.  The man was walking downtown when the drunk driver slammed into him and killed him.  The driver was arrested and charged with intoxication manslaughter.

The family hired Adam Loewy and within 3 weeks, he was able to secure all available insurance monies associated with the crash.  Loewy is also helping the family with the probate issues related to the man’s estate and staying in constant communication with the Travis County District Attorney’s Office in order to ensure that the drunk driver is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

We have seen time and time again drunk driving cause families untold heartache and grief.  This must stop.  We are in full agreement with Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo that there should be a ‘Zero Tolerance’ approach to drunk driving, as it represents a scourge on this community.  The simple truth is this – there is no reason to drink and drive.  IF you want to drink, call a cab or have a designated driver.  Better yet, don’t drink.  Life is better without alcohol.  Either way, please be careful out there – there are many reckless people who simply doesn’t care about other people.
