Drunk Driving Accidents

Alcohol is a Leading Factor in Accidents throughout Texas

In spite of the efforts of lawmakers and many others, drunk driving accidents continue to account for a grievous number of injuries and deaths every year.

As reported 1,213 Texas motorists were killed in accidents involving alcohol-impaired driving in 2011, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The CDC adds that across the country, nearly 30 people die in such alcohol-related accidents every day. The annual cost of these accidents equals more than $51 billion.

If you were injured or someone you love was killed by an alcohol-impaired driver, you have the right to pursue financial compensation for your losses. The Law Office of Thomas C. Hall, P.C., is here to help you do just that. I have a respected reputation of verdicts and settlements on behalf of personal injury victims and their families.

 

Punitive Damages in Drunk Driving Cases

Personal injury and wrongful death victims are often eligible for compensation to cover:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral expenses
  • Other damages and accident-related expenses

The victims of drunk driving accidents, however, also have the right to pursue punitive damages. This is additional money that the judge can award in order to punish the at-fault party and to set an example to others.

I will advise you about your full range of rights and options when it comes to recovering compensation. You can count on me to be your diligent advocates every step of the way. Whether through negotiating a favorable settlement or by taking your case to trial, we will seek the maximum amount available under the law.
