Possible Recoverable Damages for Your DWI Accident Injuries
The outcome of any civil injury case depends upon many factors. The details of the accident are very important in determining compensable losses.
However, some types of possible recoverable damages in drunk driving accident cases include:
- Medical bills associated with emergency transport from the scene, along with hospital and doctors’ fees
- Ongoing medical expenses for various therapies, rehabilitation, prescription medicine, and medical equipment (like that of a power chair for mobility)
- Replacement of lost income from missed time at work due to your injuries
- Reduced earning capacity if your injuries prevent you from returning to the same job as before the accident
- Mental anguish
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
Our drunk driving accident lawyers will fight for every dollar you deserve.

We Will Deal with the Insurance Company During Negotiations
It is common for personal injury cases and the pursuit of compensation to start with an insurance claim. An insurance company could offer you a settlement soon after your accident. However, keep in mind that this amount may not necessarily reflect the true value of your case.
Insurance companies often offer victims a low-dollar settlement in order to close the claim quickly at no great expense to their company. Do not give in to their aggressive tactics.
If you contact someone from Loncar Lyon Jenkins instead, we can protect the value of your case and deal with unfair insurance tactics for you.

We Can Help You Recover Damages in a Wrongful Death DWI Accident Case
Driving while intoxicated in Texas kills innocent victims every year. If you lost a close loved one due to a drunk driver, please accept our condolences. If you are having trouble making ends meet or struggling with unexpected costs, our legal team can help you file a wrongful death claim.
Your relationship to the victim plays a crucial role in determining your eligibility, per (Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 71.004). Texas wrongful death statute allows for the following family members to file a wrongful death lawsuit:
- Surviving spouse
There are certain conditions, like that of adoption, that can play a role in qualifications. Texas law does not allow for siblings of the decedent to file for compensation.

What to Do After You Are Hit By an Intoxicated Driver
What you do after a DWI accident can affect whether you are able to recover compensation. Ensure you do the following:
- Call 911 to the scene of the accident. Law enforcement may arrest the other driver for driving while intoxicated will help establish your right to damages.
- Get treatment for your injuries as soon as possible.
- Keep all documentation in a safe place.
- Call us to discuss your case during a free consultation.
- Do not give a recorded statement before speaking with a drunk driving accident lawyer from our firm.
- Do not accept a settlement offer without running it by our team first.
Pursuing a Personal Injury Case Versus a Criminal DWI Case
A DWI charge in Texas generally means that the driver had a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or higher and was intoxicated. This could refer to drugs, alcohol, or both.
There are serious consequences for driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Texas. The driver responsible for your accident may face criminal charges.
Pursuing compensation for your accident injuries is a separate legal process from a criminal case, however. The outcome of a criminal case has no bearing on your personal injury claim and lawsuit. Still, a DWI charge or conviction can help strengthen your claim that the other driver was negligent—and, therefore, owes you compensation.
