Injury By A Drunk Driver

In the year 2014, 19% of all injury related crashes involved drunk driving.

Need A Drunk Driving Accident Attorney?

If you, or a loved one in Dallas, were injured due to the acts of a drunk driver, you have rights for recovery. The first resource for recovery is the automobile insurance carrier of the intoxicated driver. You and your family may find it very difficult to prosecute a claim through the insurance company while recovering from your injury or grieving for the loss of a loved one without the assistance of a drunk driving accident attorney in Dallas. We at Jinks Law Firm can help guide you through the process and ensure you recover 100% of what you and your family are legally entitled as a result of your injury or wrongful death claim. Our lawyers and staff are experienced in making insurance claims on behalf of injured parties of drunk driving accidents and their family members in Dallas.

The second resource was provided by the Texas State Legislature and is commonly referred to as the Dram Shop Act. The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) provides the policy of the Alcoholic Beverage Code is “the protection of the welfare, health, peace, temperance, and safety of the people of the State of Texas.” In short, legislation was passed to help ensure that owners and employees of establishments serving alcoholic beverages have a duty to keep the public safe by not “overserving” its patrons and guests.

Jinks Law’s Accident Lawyers Can Help You

Jinks Law Firm has the investigative resources to determine details of a driver’s alcohol consumption and locations of consumption prior to the accident. In addition, we can work directly with the district attorney’s office to ensure all evidence and resources are immediately preserved in order to help prove your civil case. Being involved in an alcohol related accident can change your life drastically. Although it may be impractical to assure that your life will return to “normal”, recovery of some of the following elements will help ensure you and your family are on your way back to as “normal” as possible with the help of an accident attorney:

  • Expenses for necessary medical care in the past and future
  • Pain and suffering and mental anguish
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Physical impairment in the past and future
  • Disfigurement in the past and future
  • Lost wages

Injuries and damages suffered as a result of drunk driving related accidents are not exclusive to the parties physically injured. Spouses and children have rights to recover the following damages:

  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of household services
  • Pain and suffering and mental anguish
