Being Hit By Drunk Driver
People who drive drunk or under the influence of drugs put everyone else on the road at risk. Their ability to safely operate a vehicle is dramatically impaired, and their reaction times are reduced to a level where it may be difficult for them to stop in time to avoid an accident if traffic stops suddenly.
If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by a driver who was drunk or under the influence of drugs, you have the right to seek compensation for your medical care, pain and suffering, time away from work and property damage. These are complex legal issues that require the attention of a reliable Houston drunk driving accident attorney with the ability and the commitment to properly handle your case.

Seeking Maximum Damages For Accident Victims
In addition to compensatory damages, Texas law also allows victims of alcohol- or drug-impaired drivers to seek punitive damages. Punitive damages come in a completely separate order and are not covered by any insurance policy. They are exemplary damages intended to punish the driver for deliberately putting the welfare of others in danger. We aggressively pursue punitive damages in every drunk driving case.
