Fighting For You

We seek compensation from all sources after a drunk driving crash

A drunk driving accident that leaves a Houston, Texas, resident seriously hurt or dead is hard to understand in part because the loss seems so pointless.

Campaigns against drunk driving have been going on for decades now such that anyone who takes to the roads in this state really should know that if they choose to get behind the wheel drunk, they are putting their own lives and the lives of others in serious danger.

Unfortunately, serious motor vehicle accidents involving a drunk driver are still way too common. There are constantly stories about Houston residents and other Texans who get hurt or die because of a drunk driver.

Although we wish we could undo such accidents, the best we can offer our clients after a drunk driving accident is our commitment to hold all of those legally responsible for a drunk driving accident fully accountable to pay compensation to the victims. Naturally, this will mean filing a claim against the drunk driver and, if the claim cannot be resolved, then filing suit in court.

However, we won't necessarily stop there. As a previous post on this blog discussed, under certain circumstances, the bar or restaurant which served alcohol to the drunk driver who caused the crash may also be required to pay compensation to the drunk driver's victim. We will explore this option on behalf of our clients. On a related point, we may also assist our clients with filing for benefits from their own insurance company if they have the right insurance coverage and if other sources of compensation are not available.
