Can You Sue a Drunk Driver for Hitting You?

Yes, you can sue a drunk driver if they caused personal injury to you as a result of their negligence. This drunk driver accident lawsuit must be filed before the statute of limitations expires.

What Are DUI Laws in Texas?

It may not always be possible to pursue a drunk driver accident lawsuit to a negligent party because they were uninsured or underinsured. When this happens, we can try to pursue compensation from the person or establishment that provided the alcohol to the drunk driver. Texas’s Dram Shop statute says that it must be apparent to the defendant at the time that the alcohol was sold and/or provided that the person consuming the alcohol was obviously intoxicated and therefore presented a clear danger to themselves and others. This leads to a proximate cause of damages suffered.

Do Insurance Companies Pay for Drunk Driving Accidents?

It depends on the case. Some drunk drivers don’t have insurance so other means of pursuing compensation must be used. Our team of legal professionals knows how to obtain the compensation you deserve and offer free legal consultations to those who have suffered injuries from drunk driving accidents.
