Civil Damages in DWI Cases

Civil Damages in DWI Cases in Austin

When a drunk driver injures or kills somebody, that person may be subject to both criminal and civil penalties. Criminal penalties may include fines, jail time, and/or suspension of driver's licenses. In Texas, drunk drivers may be also liable in civil court for the damages they cause to the victims, including those damages may include:

  • Reasonable and necessary medical expenses
  • The cost of future care
  • Loss of earnings
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Physical impairment
  • Disfigurement, including burns and scars
  • Punitive or exemplary damages. These send a message to the community and to the drunk driver that it will not tolerate drunk driving.
