DWI Accident

Drinking and driving is a dangerous combination that can cause death or serious injuries.  In fact, more than 1,200 Texans are killed because of drinking and driving each year.  Most people realize that a drunk driver who causes an accident will be arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated.  It’s important to realize that people who have been injured, due to the negligence of an intoxicated driver, also have the right to file a civil lawsuit.  Texas civil laws allow injured people to receive compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • lost wages
  • pain and suffering
  • impairment
  • mental anguish
  • disfigurement
  • loss of consortium
  • loss of inheritance
  • loss of earning capacity
