But don't delay. Time is of the essence and there are a number of elements working against your claim already:
- Statute of Limitations: under Texas state law, you only have 2 years in which to file, after which you lose your opportunity to file;
- Physical Evidence: over time, physical evidence can become misplaced, lost, or forgotten;
- Witnesses Accounts: memories fade and those who may have seen your crash may no longer be able to assist you.
Don't let any of these factors get the better of your claim. With our assistance, you can fight back against those who caused you harm, and regain some of the damages that were lost. While financial compensation cannot undo the past, it can ease any struggles you may currently face and open up new possibilities for the future.

Because of the terrible and violent nature of most drunk driving accidents, victims are often able to recover significant financial awards. Obviously, this depends a great deal on the particulars of the case and the counsel representing said claim. But in most instances, the amounts can be quite high. Compensation comes in a variety of forms and usually falls into one or more of the following categories:
Economic Damages: these are the physical expenses and concrete damages that went into the accident and your recovery. Hospital bills, medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, property damage, loss of wages, and other assorted bills or charges are considered economic in nature.
Non-economic Damages: every accident exacts a heavy price on the individuals involved. While economic damages cover the physical costs, non-economic damages on the other hand attempt to reconcile the unseen expenses - the emotional turmoil, the mental distress, the pain and suffering. All of these intangibles add up to severe trauma for the victim, which the courts attempt to account for financially.
Punitive Damages: In some instances, if the guilty party's misdeeds are especially heinous, the court could reprimand them through punitive damages. Texas CP. Code Ann. § 41.001 permits drunk driving accident victims to receive additional monies from the at-fault party, should the judge deem it appropriate.
