Legal Recourse For Victims Injured By Drunk Drivers in Texas
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of www.crimevictim.Attorney represents drunk driving crash victims and their families in lawsuits. Mr. Kent has offered to share his insight on the legal options available to people affected by drunk driving crashes in Texas.
When someone who is intoxicated injures another person due to negligence, the victim has the right to a personal injury lawsuit against that person. In most states including Texas, there may be another legal option available to victims of alcohol-related injuries, known as a dram shop claim.
Dram shop liability is quite broad in Texas, compared to other states. These lawsuits must be based on a violation of Texas’ dram shop act:
- serving alcohol to a minor (someone under the age of 21)
- serving alcohol to someone who is already “obviously” intoxicated
Overall, if alcohol is served to a minor or over-served to an adult and that individual ends up injuring another person, then the alcohol vendor may be held liable for the victim’s injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in a drunk driving accident , you can learn more about your legal options for your case by speaking with an experienced drunk driving crash victims attorney.
