Drunk driving car wrecks are not accidents they are choices. Drunk driving or DUI or DWI is one of the main causes of serious injury and wrongful death car accidents in Texas. The drunk driver choosing not to drive or choosing not to drink could have prevented each one.

Drunk driving accidents may involve punitive damages and insurance companies are fairly quick to contact the victim. We advise victims of drunk driving accidents not to speak with the adverse insurance company until they have spoken with an experienced and reputable Austin injury attorney.

It is important that a drunk driving accident victim consider hiring a DWI accident attorney as soon as possible after the accident. Bars or clubs may be a potential party if they knowingly over served the drunk driver and encouraged the employees to disregard rules about how much they should serve patrons. A case against a bar or club for over-serving someone who later gets behind the wheel and injures or kills others is called a “Dram Shop” case in Texas. Attorneys who have handled cases against bars or clubs know how important it is to get an early start on a investigation and families should consider retaining a DWI or DUI accident lawyer in Austin as soon as possible after an accident with a drunk driver.

Frequently, a drunk driver has the minimum level of liability insurance and the injuries after a DWI accident are generally pretty severe. Often the personal injury lawyer will look to UM or UIM insurance after a car accident to seek maximum compensation for their client.
