Drunk Driving Accidents Lawyer
Personal Injury Attorneys
In the blink of an eye, a bad decision to drive after consuming too much alcohol can turn into a life-changing accident. Some victims of DWI accidents may never recover from sustained injuries. While DWI accidents are criminal in nature, accident victims can file civil lawsuits to secure rightful compensation for physical and emotional recovery so they can get back to their lives.
The Lidji Firm understands that when someone else causes your injuries, pain and suffering, property damage, and lost wages, that the negligent person and/or her insurance company should pay for your injuries and lost wages. The Lidji Firm understands families experience many long-term effects in the aftermath of an injury. An experienced law firm can help you obtain the compensation you deserve, allowing you to recover the following costs:
- Medical expenses
- Treatment and rehabilitation
- Damages to cover your pain and suffering
- Damages for permanent impairment and disfigurement
- Replacement income for lost wages
- Property damage
Additionally, Texas allows victims of accidents to seek punitive damages – extra compensation assessed to the defendant as a means of punishment, although some insurance carriers specifically exclude punitive damage coverage, so it is important to review the insurance policy of the drunk driver before settling any claims. For those seriously injured, filing a lawsuit against the drunk driver usually is the only way to cover the costs associated with the accident, especially if the drunk driver has excess insurance coverage.
What Criminal Proceedings Fail to Provide
Dram Shop Laws
Some states, including Texas, recognize the validity of dram shop laws. After a DWI-related accident, you may be able to hold both the driver and any alcohol-serving establishment liable for your damages. If a bar, hotel, or restaurant served the intoxicated defendant alcohol, the Lidji Firm’s attorneys will go the extra mile to investigate all the evidence contributing to the accident. In some cases, you may be able to take legal action against the serving establishment. Mr. Lidji’s ten (10) years as a bartender and waiter provide him a unique skill set in handling dram shop cases.
