Unfortunately, Texas is ranked second in the country for drunk driving accidents according to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). Harris County (Houston) leads the country for alcohol-related injuries and deaths in comparison to other large, highly-populated counties within the United States.
Drunk driving is a criminal offense. In Texas, this is known as Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). However, our drunk driving injury lawyers are focused on the civil aspect of these tragedies – suing the drunk driver and others who may be responsible for monetary damages, including punitive damages. John Ramsey and Ramsey Law Group have represented countless families who suffered injuries or deaths as a result of a drunk driving accident. We have the knowledge, experience, and resources to pursue these types of claims. It is important that you hire an experienced lawyer immediately to preserve all necessary evidence in these types of cases. It is also equally important to hire an attorney that knows about other claims that may arise from a drunk driving accident. Sometimes, an employer may be responsible for placing its inebriated employees behind the wheel of a vehicle. Other times, a restaurant, bar, tavern, pub, cantina, or club may be responsible for overserving a customer, in violation of Texas law. These cases are also known as “Dram Shop” cases.
In short, our attorneys have experience with the following claims resulting from drunk driving accidents:
- Gross Negligence/Punitive Damages
- Wrongful Death
- Employer Liability for Acts of Employees
- Dram Shop Cases
- Serving Alcohol to Minors
