If an everyday trip to school, work, or the grocery store was interrupted by an accident because of an intoxicated driver, you could be eligible to receive financial compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Without seeking compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company, you could be left with expenses and losses that last as long as your injuries.
You do not have to seek compensation on your own. A McAllen DWI accident lawyer can help you hold the intoxicated driver accountable for your lost wages and other expenses caused by the accident.
As soon as you have had your initial injuries treated, contact the legal team at Loncar Lyon Jenkins. We can help you file a claim for financial compensation. Do not delay. Call our client intake team at 800-777-7777 as soon after the DWI accident as possible.
Do Not Hesitate to File a Personal Injury Claim After a DWI Accident
Were you or a loved one injured in a car accident caused by an intoxicated driver? If a DWI led to an accident that caused serious injuries, damaged or destroyed your property, or forced you to lose income by missing time away from work, you can hold the at-fault driver financially responsible.
Sec. 16.003 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code generally allows up to two years for you to negotiate a settlement or file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. If you do not file your claim within the allotted time, you might inadvertently relinquish your right to file a claim at all.
Before time runs out on your ability to file a claim for financial compensation, contact the team at Loncar Lyon Jenkins. Call 800-777-7777 as soon as your injuries are treated and you are ready to prepare your case for financial recovery against the driver who caused the accident that led to your injuries.

DWI Accidents Can Create Medical and Non-Medical Expenses
When an intoxicated driver causes an accident, the injuries you sustain can create medical expenses that may include emergency room treatment, laboratory and imaging exams, IV and prescription medications, surgical procedures, assistive medical devices, and more. A personal injury lawsuit can help you recoup these medical expenses.
Non-medical expenses that might also be eligible for recovery in a personal injury claim include:
- Current and future lost income
- Short and long-term physical disability
- Disfigurement and permanent scarring
- Pain and suffering and mental distress
The expenses of the injuries you sustained can start at the accident scene and last for months or longer. They can also add up surprisingly quickly. If you are faced with one or more of these financial components of a DWI accident, our team can help you prepare a comprehensive case for financial recovery.
