Drunk Driver Accidents
Drunk drivers place everyone on the road in serious jeopardy. Their choice to drive after drinking can gravely impact the lives of countless individuals. Sadly, the aftermath of a DWI accident is seldom pleasant, often leaving victims and their families in a state of utter devastation.
According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), an organization for which Dallas attorney Jason January is a frequent speaker, drunk drivers have killed almost 1,600 people in alcohol-related accidents in Texas alone.

What Types Of Damages Can You Recover?
The law recognizes the seriousness of a drunk driver’s conduct. Texas statutory law provides for dram shop liability in instances where a licensed seller of alcohol continues to provide alcohol to an obviously inebriated patron who subsequently injures a third party. Besides paying for your economic losses, a drunk driver may also have to pay punitive damages. Punitive damages punish people who cause a DWI accident and seek to deter others from driving drunk.
Did The Other Driver Have Insurance?
Many times, an underinsured or uninsured motorist causes a DWI accident. Under a UIM claim, you seek compensation through your own insurance company. This inexpensive form of coverage provides you with reassurance in the event you are hit by an uninsured or underinsured drunk driver.
