This scene, unfortunately, happens all too often.  One of the toughest parts of our jobs as a  car wreck attorney is taking phone calls from clients injured by a drunk or distracted driver.  Let’s face it, car accidents happen, but when they are the result of potentially criminal behavior, they are all the more tragic.
