Pursuing Fair Compensation for Drunk Driving Accident Victims

Insurance defense attorneys often argue aggressively on behalf of drunk drivers in order to deny liability or subsequent financial disbursements. When faced with such circumstances, it is important to seek an aggressive and experienced drunk driving accident attorney who will fight for justice and your rights.

Troy works closely with medical consultants, insurance specialists, and professional investigators to secure the rights of his clients. He zealously represents families and individuals who have suffered physically, emotionally, or financially as a result of drunk driving accidents. He stands firmly against large insurance corporations, demanding compensation for the driver’s gross negligence. With his experience as a former insurance defense lawyer, he is uniquely positioned to provide more effective legal counsel for the injured.

Some of the types of compensation available in a drunk driving accident claim may include:

  • Lost earnings
  • Future loss of earnings or earning capacity
  • Medical bills
  • Ongoing medical treatment
  • Medication and medical supplies
  • Travel costs to and from medical appointments
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional trauma
  • Punitive damages

Using a Conviction to Bolster Your Claim

When you bring a personal injury claim against someone who caused a car accident while drunk, the more evidence you can gather, the better. You can be confident that the opposition and their insurance providers will be adamant about denying as much as they can about your claim due to the high stakes of a drunk driving accusation. One important piece of evidence to consider is what might be on the liable party’s criminal record.

Although criminal courts are entirely and deliberately separate from the civil courts, you can still consider using the results of the criminal case against the liable driver to your advantage. If a criminal court was convinced that a driving under the influence (DUI) conviction was justified, then it stands to reason that a civil court judge or jury should be, too.

If the drunk driver that hit you has not had their criminal case resolved yet, then it might be beneficial to pause the filing of your injury claim. Most criminal DUI cases will conclude in a few months after the arrest and charges. Texas has a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury claims, which begins on the date of the accident. With this in mind, we should have ample time to prepare your claim, wait to see if the drunk driver is convicted, and then file it without risking the statute expiring. Every situation is unique, though, so it is always a safer option to contact our law firm soon after an accident and get our input about when and how you should file your claim.

Make sure you have an experienced professional to seek justice and fair compensation on your behalf after a drunk driving accident. Call the Law Offices of Troy A. Brookover at 210-226-2000 today!
