When A DWI Results In A Car Crash With Injuries
Texas law allows victims of intoxicated or impaired drivers to recover punitive damages in addition to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other legal injuries.
Exemplary damages are designed to punish the wrongdoer for their behavior. If a drunk driver was drinking at a restaurant or bar before they got into the wreck, that business may even be held legally accountable for the injuries.
What To Do If You Are Hit By A Drunk Driver
If you are in an automobile accident, and you suspect that the other driver has been drinking, call the police immediately. Stay observant until the police arrive on the scene, because your observations may help the police discover important clues as to the person’s level of impairment. Consider hiring a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. A personal injury lawyer will make sure that your rights are protected and that you get the maximum amount of compensation that the law allows.
When A DWI Results In The Death Of A Loved One
It is a horrible tragedy when a loved one is killed by a drunk driver. Texas law provides that a drunk driving death can lead to charges of intoxicated manslaughter, but the criminal law does not provide any compensation for the families. However, with the help of a personal injury attorney, the family who has lost a loved one can also file a lawsuit for wrongful death and seek financial compensation. Our attorney, Robert Hogan, is Board-Certified® by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in personal injury trial law and has decades of experience litigating personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits. If you have lost a loved one in a drunk driving accident, you can find the guidance you need at Hogan Law Firm.
