Medication & DWI Truck Accidents

Most Oklahoma residents know that a person who drives a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or above is considered to be drunk and can be arrested. Fewer people know that the driver of a commercial vehicle can be arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) if he or she has a BAC of .04 or above.

Oklahoma's commercial drunk driving law is designed to increase the safety on highways and streets for all motorists. Nevertheless, truck drivers do get behind the wheel after drinking too much or after taking prescription medication or illegal drugs that impair their driving.

At Hawkins Law Firm in Tulsa, we advocate for individuals who have been injured or have a family member who was killed in an accident that was caused by a truck driver who was driving drunk or who was under the influence of prescription or illegal drugs.

We Maximize The Amount Our Clients Recover

In truck accidents in which a driver is shown to have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the driver's employer may also be liable for damages. Employers may have been aware of a driver's drinking problem or health problems that required medication. These are complex cases that require the knowledge and skills of an experienced personal injury lawyer. Attorney Phillip C. Hawkins has represented injured parties for nearly 20 years.

We will take the time to review every aspect of your car accident in order to determine every party that should be named in a personal injury lawsuit. We work closely with accident reconstruction specialists and other investigators who help us build the kind of strong cases that allow us to maximize the amount we recover for our clients.

Contact Hawkins Law Firm

It is important to contact us as soon as possible following your accident. Insurance companies have been known to attempt to hide evidence that can produce larger recoveries or pressure injured parties to settle quickly for less than the full amount they deserve. For your protection, it's smart to speak with us before you talk with any insurance company representatives.

Call (918) 583-6007 or use our online contact form to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation. We will review the facts of your case and provide a straightforward assessment, as well as the steps we recommend to take next.

I've known Phil for over 4 years now and have always been very happy with his service to me. Anytime I had questions or issues Phil would always find me the answers I needed and always in a timely and professional manner. I never had a problem with him returning my calls even at odd hours. He was a tremendous help to me and still is and I was very pleased with the outcome. I fully understand that I was not his only client but he still always found time to talk to me when I needed him and to reassure me when I stressed over my situation. Angela Delaine

I had Phil Hawkins as my attorney on several cases and have been extremely satisfied with his services. Him and his staff kept me informed and up to date on every step. He was very professional and very knowledgeable on all my cases over the past 5 years. My future was looking pretty dim there for awhile because of my injuries and age but Mr Hawkins came through and I can now relax. I found him and his staff very polite, courteous and compassionate to my circumstances and the final results were very satisfying. Frederick Janiskee

I am very grateful for the support of the Hawkins Law Firm. It is not common to walk into law firm and be greeted by a dog! However, as it is only in a time of crisis that one needs to seek out the help of an attorney - I found this to be a very unique and helpful comfort! Not only did Mr. Hawkins take the time to address all of my questions and concerns; but the warm and welcoming environment of his law firm, along with his staff, made an otherwise stressful situation a overall less overwhelming experience.
