Legal Options For Victims Injured By Drunk Drivers in Texas

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan works closely with victims of drunk driving. Below we have asked him to share some of his advice on the legal options that may be available to drunk driving victims and their families.

In Texas and many other states, people who have been killed or injured by a drunk driver can pursue many different legal routes in trying to obtain financial compensation. First, these drunk driving victims can try to file a personal injury lawsuit against the inebriated driver. Personal injury lawsuits are a common option for many of these victims, but given the complexity and varying nature of these cases, there are always alternative routes that drunk driving victims may choose to take.

For example, many states observe dram shop laws. Under these laws, a drunk driving victim can actually file a lawsuit against the vendor who sold the alcohol to the drunk driver. But of course, there are a few stipulations 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.

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