Attorney for Drunk Driving Crashes Serving the Houston Area

Drunk drivers are dangerous. This fact is well-known. Alcohol can destroy a person's ability to think and react properly while behind the wheel. Countless crashes every year are caused by drivers who are drunk or under the influence of drugs. The problem with intoxicated drivers is that they are entirely unpredictable - there is almost no way for a sober driver to anticipate their next move and avoid a collision. Rarely do drunk drivers manage to mitigate the severity of an accident by braking or swerving, and their dangerous actions often lead to serious injuries for others involved in a collision.

The Hatton Law Firm PLLC is committed to helping people who have been hit by drunk drivers recover the funds they need to address all costs and losses related to the accident, in addition to non-economic harms. We have years of experience investigating these accidents and pursuing full compensation from the liable parties. We understand the impact intoxicated driver accidents can have on your life, and we will strive to set things right for you.

Fort Bend County Lawyers for Recovering Compensation After a DWI Crash

The economic costs associated with a motor vehicle accident can put an unbelievable strain on you and your family. You are likely to miss work due to your injuries, making the problem of covering medical expenses even more challenging. The good news is that both of these are compensable expenses. We may be able to help you recover funds to replace any lost wages in addition to the money needed to pay for your medical care.

If you suffered a catastrophic injury like a traumatic brain injury, it is likely that you will not be able to return to your career path, and your medical expenses may continue to climb. Compensation after a DWI accident can be calculated to cover future losses and costs in addition to those you have already incurred.

We may also be able to pursue non-economic damages. These damages can provide compensation for your pain and suffering, including emotional and psychological harm you and your family have suffered. Our goal is to ensure that you are fully compensated for every single type of harm you have endured.

How Our Houston Area Attorneys Work to Prove Your Case

Texas has something called "negligence per se" statutes that can protect people who have been harmed by law-breaking drivers. Generally, this means that if we are able to prove that the driver who hit you was committing a crime - in this case, a DWI - then the at-fault driver can be automatically considered negligent.

Using this legal mechanism often helps us begin recovering funds for our injured clients more quickly and easily. We want to make the experience of pursuing compensation as smooth and simple as possible for you.

If the intoxicated driver was not arrested or charged, do not worry. Our team has many other methods of proving the other driver's intoxication and fault. We conduct detailed investigations, reviewing everything from evidence found at the crash site to police reports and witness statements.

Wrongful Death Lawyers for Families of DWI Crash Victims

Sadly, drunk driving accidents can turn fatal very easily. The wildly unpredictable nature of intoxicated drivers can mean that people in other vehicles have no chance to try to mitigate the accident. Motorcyclists and pedestrians are also highly likely to suffer fatal injuries if they are involved in collisions with drunk drivers.

If you lost an immediate family member because of the actions of an intoxicated driver, our attorneys may be able to help you pursue compensation for the loss of your loved one. While there is no such thing as compensation sufficient to make up for the pain of losing a beloved family member, filing a wrongful death action can prevent financial stress and help to hold the intoxicated driver responsible.
