How Do I File a Claim?
Drunk driving is a very serious crime and is not to be taken lightly. The State of Texas will often punish a drunk driver by filing a criminal case against them. You should be aware that you have the right to file a civil lawsuit as a victim of a drunk driving accident.
Even if the state files a criminal case while you are filing a civil lawsuit, they can still result in different verdicts and consequences for the defendant. This is where our Austin drunk driving accident lawyers can help.
Our accident attorneys can investigate the wreck, file all necessary documents, and negotiate with the drunk driver's insurance company in order to get you the maximum settlement possible. And if the insurance company is unwilling to negotiate a fair settlement, we are prepared to take your case to court.
Innocent Victims of Drunk Drivers
There are many benefits to filing a civil lawsuit against a drunk driver. The first and foremost is being able to collect damages. If your lawsuit is successful, the settlement may result in financial compensation for you and your family. This compensation can cover your medical expenses, lost income, and the pain and suffering you have to go through after an accident.
Filing a civil lawsuit also ensures that justice is served on the individual who chose to drive under the influence of alcohol. If they were served alcohol at a bar or restaurant, that establishment could possibly be held responsible under certain circumstances.
We understand how painful and stressful it is to suffer through an accident, and our firm wants to be there to assist you during this difficult time. We at Zinda Law Group make it our business to educate our clients on what their rights are so that they can make informed decisions about their case. We are dedicated to protecting our clients' rights and fighting aggressively for what they deserve. Our mission is to obtain maximum compensation on your behalf and to make your life as stress-free as possible after an accident.
