In the state of Texas, drivers who are caught operating a motor vehicle while under the influence are criminally prosecuted for their actions and can face numerous penalties upon conviction, including a lengthy prison sentence, harsh fines, a driver’s license suspension, and more. Unfortunately, these criminal penalties do little to compensate the victims of their actions. Instead, victims of drunk driving accidents and their families have the right to file a civil claim against the driver in pursuit of fair monetary compensation for their suffering. In some cases, under the state’s Dram Shop Act, drunk driving victims may even be able to sue the restaurant or bar who negligently served the driver alcohol for partial compensation.
Damages that can be recovered include:
