Car accidents can be particularly devastating when you or a loved has been the victim of a drunk driving accident. If there is any consolation to such tragedy, you can take some relief in knowing that Texas law provides victims of DWI accidents good chances of receiving full compensation for injuries and damages, including exemplary (punitive) damages, when warranted. However, the experience of a successful and established personal injury lawyer is still necessary.
According to the national organization of MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) statistics show that a staggering one in three people will be involved in an alcohol-related crash in their lifetime. This year alone, 10,839 people will die in drunk-driving crashes (one every 50 minutes), and every minute, one person is injured from an alcohol-related crash. Drunk driving is an issue that hits close to home here in Fort Bend County. Just this year, MADD partnered with Fort Bend ISD to launch a new program, PowerTalk 21, targeted at educating Fort Bend parents on how to talk with their children about the dangers of drinking and drunk driving.

With more than 30 years of combined experience seeking maximum compensation in such cases, the aggressive Sugar Land and Katy attorneys of Reed & Terry, L.L.P., can work to obtain punitive damages from the drunk driver's insurance company, and we can protect your rights comprehensively. Drunk drivers cause injuries to many different types of people. We represent many victims of intoxicated drivers, including injuries to their passengers. Through collaboration with accident reconstruction experts, we can fully investigate the scene and circumstances of the accident caused by the drunk driver to put the insurance company on its heels.
The insurance company often will not automatically fold. They will still try to minimize costs. In order to protect your rights and pursue maximum compensation, it is crucial to consult with our experienced and knowledgeable attorneys before you speak with insurance adjusters or attorneys. Additionally, it is equally as crucial that we investigate the scene of the accident as soon as possible, preferably before the insurance company.
