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
At Ben Dominguez Law Firm, we have successfully represented injury victims in a number of cases involving DWI or drug-impaired drivers. We understand how frustrating it can be when another person’s irresponsible decision results in serious injuries to you or your loved ones. We are committed to seeing that you receive the maximum level of compensation available for your case.
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.
