Criminal V.S. Civil DUI Accident Cases
Both a DWI and DUI conviction can lead to hefty fines, a criminal record, and even jail time. However, that often does little in the way of helping a victim. That is where a drunk driving accident lawyer such as Rocky Walton comes in. Our Arlington, TX, firm works on behalf of victims and their families in civil court to recover damages that resulted from the car crash. In a civil case, drunk drivers are held responsible if their physical or mental faculties were compromised to any extent, even if they were not charged or convicted in a criminal court.
Who Is Liable for the Car Accident?
The driver is clearly responsible for an auto accident and is liable. Their auto insurance company will usually pay out damages on behalf of the drunk driver.
Under the Dram Shop Act, establishments such as bars and restaurants that serve alcohol to obviously intoxicated patrons can be liable for a resulting accident.
An employer may be partially liable for a DWI-related accident if they were negligent in their hiring practices or knowingly allowed the driver to get behind the wheel.
If a minor acquires alcohol at a party or private residence, the adults who supplied the alcohol can be held liable for their actions.
We Have Recovered Thousands For Our Clients
One of our clients was injured by a drunk driver who only had $20,000 in insurance coverage. We were able to make a successful Dram Shop case against the restaurant where he consumed alcohol.
Timeline of Your Personal Injury Case
We advocate aggressively on behalf of our clients and will never take a settlement unless it a fair amount worthy of your losses.
