A former member of MADD’s North Texas advisory board, Hunt has always had a heart for victims of drunk driving. DN is a client whose case obtained city-wide press and TV news coverage because the drunk driver had been “overserved” by the bar he had been drinking at. When it became apparent that the driver was financially unable to pay for the damages he caused, an investigation of the bar was conducted.
During that investigation, it was found that over 16 drinks had been served to the defendant by the same bar in just a few hours. Bars are required to follow safety rules that prevent drunk driving and protect everyone on the road. When those rules are broken, catastrophic injuries and death are foreseeable. When those rules are enforced, all of us are protected. Ultimately, DN was able to be compensated for a fair amount, and safety rules were incorporated at the bar to make sure it never happened again.
