You may be able to claim damages after your accident

It is no secret that drunk drivers in Texas are responsible for a tremendous number of accidents on the roads. Worse still, many of these incidents have devastating consequences, resulting in serious injuries or even death for many innocent people. The victims of these crashes can do nothing to protect themselves, as regardless of your own diligence as a driver, it is not always possible to predict the mistakes of others.

The reduced reaction times and poor judgment of drunk drivers can cause them to make erratic decisions on the roads, to misjudge turns and fail to keep track of their speed. Other factors such as unfavorable weather conditions and poorly maintained road surfaces can also come into play, making the whole situation even more dangerous. Unfortunately, if you are sharing the road with such a driver, you could become caught up in the aftermath if he or she makes a mistake.

As this article on DUI accidents explains, one option that might be worth considering is filing a civil lawsuit in order to claim damages from the person responsible for the crash. If the incident also resulted in the loss of a loved one, you may also want to make a wrongful death claim. While this can do little to salve the pain of your bereavement, it may at least help to relieve some of the financial burden of your loss.

This may seem like a lot to take in after such a traumatic experience, but there is support available, so you do not need to navigate the legal process alone. An attorney can advise you about the options available to you and may be able to guide you through the necessary steps to secure the justice and compensation you deserve.
