    Denton Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers

    The most recent data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that roughly 10,000 deaths occur annually as a result of drunk drivers.

    The most recent data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that roughly 10,000 deaths occur annually as a result of drunk drivers. However, that statistic does not include the thousands more victims affected by severe injuries, nor does it include the overall impact of these crashes on the families of injured people. Drunk driving wrecks are particularly devastating for a variety of reasons, including the drunk driver’s inability to:

    • Respond to changing weather conditions
    • Have sound judgment
    • React to stimuli such as red lights or a change in speed limits
    • Be aware of their surroundings.

    At Fears Nachawati, a Dallas car accident law firm, we employ skilled Denton drunk driving accident attorneys to help injured people and their families pursue the compensation they deserve. If you are injured in such a wreck, get in touch with us today. We may be able to help you catalog your damages, collect and preserve evidence, file your claim and other necessary paperwork, negotiate with opposing legal counsel, and more.

    Our attorneys have years of experience handling all manner of personal injury cases in Denton, which allows us to bring that knowledge to your claim. For example, we have a better familiarity with local judges, juries, and defense lawyers and know the kinds of evidence and argumentation that tends to persuade them. Let us do the heavy lifting in your claim while you focus on recovering from your injuries and getting your personal life back on track after this tragic occurrence.

    Experienced Attorneys Can Help My Claim

    Whether your claim is a seemingly straightforward rear end accident or involves larger complexities like a driver for a rideshare company such as Uber or Lyft, it is always best to have a lawyer on your side who is steeped in experience. Our attorneys can help you with all of the complicated legal issues that may crop up in your claim, such as the following.

    Dram Shop Law

    Commonly called “dram shop law,” Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code §2.02 states that an establishment that serves alcohol may be held liable for injuries in a drunk driving accident case if certain conditions are true. Those conditions include serving an underage person alcohol or serving alcohol to a person already so intoxicated that they appear obviously dangerous to themselves and others. If these are true in your claim, our attorneys may be able to pursue compensation from the establishment as well as from the drunk driver.

    Extra Damages

    Though most car accident claims include the compensatory damages discussed below, some instances warrant additional compensation assigned by the jury or judge. Called “exemplary damages,” this extra compensation is designed to punish especially egregious behavior like drunk driving or texting and driving. Though attorneys do not argue for this extra compensation directly, we may be able to provide evidence of the opposing driver’s harmful behavior in order to steer the jury in that direction.

    Meeting Deadlines

    Most laypeople do not have a working knowledge of legal definitions or processes, which can make navigating a personal injury claim difficult. Our Denton drunk driving accident lawyers can help your claim by ensuring that all appropriate deadlines are met, including the filing of your claim in court before the two-year statute of limitations expires. This preserves your right to pursue compensation from the at-fault party.

    Understanding Damages in My Claim

    From bicycle accidents to slip and fall injuries, all personal injury claims are about getting compensation from the at-fault party to cover the damages experienced by the injured person. These compensatory damages come in two distinct types: economic harms and non-economic harms.

    Economic Harms

    This first category of damages includes all of the financial harms that you experience as a direct result of the accident. Examples of economic damages include the cost of hospital bills, the cost of repairing or replacing a vehicle, and even wages lost because you are injured and cannot work.

    Non-economic Harms

    On the other hand, non-economic harms are the damages you experience that do not come with a ready-made price tag. These tend to be more subjective issues, such as your pain and suffering, mental anguish, or a loss of enjoyment in life due to your injury. It is often necessary to consult with an expert witness who can attribute appropriate values to these damages, since they do not have a clear monetary value at first glance.
