Driver Under Influence of Marijuana Fatally Strikes Man Albuquerque, NM (March 8, 2019) –

Accidents involving impaired drivers can have devastating consequences, as seen in a recent tragic incident near Gallup. In this case, a driver under the influence of marijuana struck and killed an elderly pedestrian. This highlights the critical need for legal support for victims and their families.

When such accidents occur, the complexities of the legal system can be overwhelming. Charges like aggravated DWI and leaving the scene of an accident carry severe penalties, and navigating these legal waters requires expert guidance. An experienced attorney can help ensure justice is served and provide much-needed support during a difficult time.

Legal representation is crucial for several reasons. Firstly, an attorney can help you understand your rights and the legal options available. They can assist in gathering evidence, dealing with insurance companies, and representing you in court. This is essential for securing compensation for medical expenses, funeral costs, and emotional distress.

Moreover, having legal support can drive systemic change, ensuring stricter enforcement of DUI laws and better safety measures on our roads. Holding negligent drivers accountable not only brings justice to the victims but also helps prevent future tragedies.
