Legal Options for People Injured by Drunk Drivers in Texas

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan represents people who have been hit by drunk drivers, helping them recover the financial compensation they need and deserve through lawsuits and settlements. We've asked Brian to share some thoughts on the legal options available to those who have been injured by drunk drivers in Texas:

People who have been injured by drunk drivers have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against that driver, regardless of the state where the accident occurred. Texas is also one of several states which prohibit alcohol vendors (bars, clubs, restaurants, etc.) from serving alcohol to visibly intoxicated or underage customers. If an alcohol vendor does either of these things anyway and that customer causes an accident with injuries, the people injured may have grounds for a dram shop lawsuit against the vendor.

If you or someone you love has recently been injured or killed after being hit by a drunk driver, it's important to be aware of all of your legal options.
