Legal Recourse For Victims & Their Families Injured or Killed By Drunk Drivers in Texas

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan works with victims of drunk driving and their families. Below we have asked him to share some of his advice with The Legal Herald on the legal options that drunk driving victims may wish to take.

In Texas and many other states, people who have been killed or injured by a drunk driver can pursue many different legal routes in obtaining financial compensation. First, these drunk driving victims may choose to bring a personal injury lawsuit against the intoxicated driver. Personal injury lawsuits are a common option for many of these victims, but not all of these cases work in the same manner and thus there are always alternative routes that drunk driving victims may choose to take.

For instance, many states maintain dram shop laws. Under these laws, a drunk driving victim can file a lawsuit against the vendor who sold the alcohol to the drunk driver. But of course, there are a few requirements and they vary by state. According to Texas dram shop laws, an alcohol vendor may be made liable for a drunk driving accident if the vendor is:

  • serving alcohol to a minor (someone under the age of 21)
  • or serving alcohol to someone who is already "obviously" intoxicated.

If one of these laws are violated and the drunk driver harms someone, a drunk driving victim may be able to bring forth a lawsuit against the vendor.
