Never will there be a situation where the risks of driving under the influence do not outweigh the benefits of calling a cab. When someone gets behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking, they pose a risk to everybody they share the roadways with. If you become an injury victim of a drunk driver, you should rely on an experienced drunk driver personal injury attorney here at our Boston, Massachusetts law firm to help guide you through the complicated litigation process so you can begin to recover from your injuries.
A personal injury lawyer from Hialeah, Florida was arrested Tuesday and charged with killing a woman at a Miami Lakes crosswalk last year with his Mercedes-Benz and driving away while impaired. This was not the first time Attorney Marcos Antonio Gonzalez-Balboa has been accused of leaving the scene of a car crash. For this incident, the 65 year-old was charged with DUI manslaughter/failure to render aid, vehicular homicide, failure to stop, leaving the scene of a crash involving a death, and tampering with physical evidence in connection with the December 7, 2017 death of Tatum Holloway, 26 years-old, of Traverse City, Michigan.
Investigators determined that Ms. Holloway was using the Fairway Drive crosswalk at around 2:30 a.m. when a car hit her, launching her into the air and causing her to land on a curb on the west side of Fairway Drive. Police believe that car was Gonzalez-Balboa’s silver C-Class Benz and that he was the driver. The wrongful death lawsuit, filed in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court, seeks to compensate Holloway’s parents for their grief and to pay off medical and funeral costs.
