What to do if you have been the victim of a Drunk Driving Accident?
- Call the police right away;
- Take photographs of the damage to the vehicles, the scene of the collision, and the license plate of the vehicle driven by the drunk driver;
- Get checked out by a medical professional, either at the emergency room or your primary care physician; and,
- Do not talk to any insurance companies until you talk to an experienced attorney first.
Our lawyers will use the police report, 911 call tapes, dashboard camera footage, evidence from the scene of the accident, and witness statements to help you maximize your recovery and help you get back on your feet as soon as possible. We know how traumatizing life is after being involved in an accident with a drunk driver. We will focus on your needs and provide personal attention to help you and your family recover.
Who Can Be Held Responsible?
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is illegal. Drunk drivers who cause car accidents may not only face criminal charges, but also may be held accountable for damages they cause, either through a settlement or a civil lawsuit filed by the victim of the accident.
Bars, restaurants and other companies may also be held liable for drunk driving accidents in some cases. If the driver was drinking alcohol at their establishment and caused an accident after leaving, the establishment may also be named in a personal injury lawsuit. Legal cases against the establishment that served the drunk driver are very complicated, and require and experienced attorney to guide you through the process and get you the compensation you deserve.
Our attorneys will protect you after being injured by a drunk driver. We will make sure you and your family get the compensation you are entitled to under Texas Law, including medical expenses paid in the past and that you will have to pay in the future, lost wages, lost earning capacity, physical impairment, and pain and suffering.
