A Garland DWI Lawyer from Our Team May Be Able to Prepare Your Case for Trial
Loncar Lyon Jenkins’ DWI accident team prepares every accident case we handle for trial. Many settle without going in front of a judge and jury, but we believe the preparation for a trial allows us to develop strong support for our client’s insurance claim.
In addition, it shows the drunk driver we are serious about suing them if their insurance company will not agree to a just settlement.
We advocate on behalf of injury victims based on contingency fees. We do not ask claimants to pay anything out of their pockets. Instead, we collect our fees from the settlement agreement or court award we secure on their behalf. Your family will never need to pay us anything up front if we work on your case.

The Drunk Driver Could Face Two Court Trials Related to Your Traffic Accident
In most cases, drunk driving laws in Texas are found under Texas Penal Code § 49, including:
- Driving while intoxicated (DWI) under Texas Penal Code § 49.04
- Intoxication assault under Texas Penal Code § 49.07
- Intoxication manslaughter under Texas Penal Code § 49.08
While this is important to the driver who hit you or your loved one, and a criminal conviction may feel like justice, it will not cover the expenses and losses you experienced. Instead, you will need to pursue a civil case against the driver.
It is important to note that a criminal conviction can support your lawsuit, but it is unnecessary to hold the drunk driver accountable in a civil case. The inverse is also true. A criminal conviction is also not a guaranteed win in a civil trial, although it can help.
How You Can Prove the Drunk Driver Caused Your Garland Collision
When we build a Garland DWI case, the lawyers from Loncar Lyon Jenkins gather evidence to show:
- The driver acted negligently, directly causing your collision.
- You suffered injuries in the crash.
- You have financial losses due to the accident and your injuries.
We do not have to prove the driver was drinking or had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over the legal limit. For example, if a driver ran a red light because they were driving impaired, we must show they failed to obey the traffic signal.
Evidence common in these accidents include:
- The accident report filed by law enforcement
- Witness statements
- Traffic or surveillance camera video
- The damage to each vehicle
- Accident reconstruction
- Other expert testimony

Do Not Wait to Take Action for Your Garland DWI Accident Case
Most traffic accident victims in Texas only have two years to begin the legal process of taking a case to trial, per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003. Missing the deadline in your case would likely mean losing the right to sue the driver and recover a financial award.
It is important to know that not all collision victims have a two-year deadline for beginning the process. Some circumstances increase or decrease the time available to build a case and take action. You must meet the appropriate timeline to hold the drunk driver responsible in court.
We can ensure you understand the deadlines that apply in your case.
