Representing Families Of Wrongful Death Victims Throughout Texas
The unexpected loss of a family member in an accident is a traumatic event. When you know that your loved one died because of the actions of a drunk driver, the sadness and anger intensifies.
You can take action to hold the responsible party or parties accountable for their actions through a wrongful death lawsuit. This can serve to bring a measure of justice for the loss of your loved one and compensation for your financial and noneconomic losses.
Strong Advocates For Texas Families
Reed & Terry, L.L.P., is a team of attorneys that aggressively seeks compensation and justice in cases involving drunk driver accidents. We seek full compensation in every drunk driving accident case, from all possible sources of compensation, including the drunk driver and the bar or hospitality establishment that served alcohol to the driver. When you retain our law firm, Reed & Terry, L.L.P., will be relentless in the pursuit of compensation and justice.
Obtaining Compensation In A Drunk Driver Accident Case
Our lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation of the events leading to the accident. In addition, we will closely follow legal developments in the criminal DWI case. Under Texas dram shop liability laws, a hospitality establishment that served alcohol to an obviously inebriated person or a minor who then causes an accident can be held liable.
In a wrongful death case, damages can include:
- Medical costs prior to death
- Pain and suffering of the deceased prior to death
- Lost income your loved one would have earned
- Loss of consortium and loss of companionship
- Funeral costs
In some cases, punitive damages can be assessed. Reed & Terry, L.L.P., will seek full compensation from all sources, including the driver, driver's insurance company, and the bar or restaurant that served the driver.
