Drunk Driving Crashes – Not “Accidents”

The Loewy Law Firm has been retained a family in Bastrop who was hit by a drunk driver who ran a red light. Our clients were heading to a Church event and were hit by a man who apparently had been drinking all day in a local bar. When the drunk driver was arrested, he was so intoxicated that he was laughing about the collision. Needless to say, drunk driving is no laughing matter and a person with this kind of disregard for fellow citizens should be in jail. Recent statistics have indicated that over 1400 Texans per year are killed by… Read More

Walkway Collapses – Who is Responsible?

Recently, the City of Austin took the rare step of shutting down the Wood Ridge Apartments and telling all of the residents they could no longer live there. The City did this because two weeks ago a second story walkway collapsed and the City concluded the entire structure was unsafe. Thankfully, to this point, no one has gotten hurt but obviously if a second story walkway collapsed with people on it, there is a strong likelihood people would be seriously hurt and die. In the event someone got hurt on a walkway collapse, who would be responsible? The short answer… Read More

No Refusal Weekends – DWI Accidents

The Austin Police Department recently a conducted a “No Refusal Weekend” for Memorial Day. This is where if a police officer believes someone is intoxicated, the cop will not let the person “refuse” a blood test but, rather, will get a warrant from a Judge to draw the person’s blood. Many people think this is not constitutional but it actually is – in 1966, the Supreme Court held in Schmerber v. California that police could extract blood from a suspected drunk driver without the driver’s permission (as long as a Judge approved it). The Loewy Law Firm is a strong advocates for… Read More
