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?

Our Arlington, TX, injury lawyers seek to hold all responsible parties accountable for a drunk driving accident. Depending on the circumstances of the case, several people may be liable for damages...

Drivers

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.

Alcohol Vendors 

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.

Employers

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.

Responsible Adults

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.

Contact an Accident Attorney

While the criminal justice system is likely pressing criminal DWI charges against the driver, you do not have to wait to take the case to civil court. If you have sustained losses in a drunk driving accident, contact our Arlington attorneys as soon as possible. We will meet with you for a free consultation and begin working on your wrongful injury or wrongful death case. 

Gathering Evidence

Evidence that can be collected in drunk driving accidents differs from other types of motor vehicle accidents and should be obtained promptly. There is likely documentation including video footage from a police officer’s dashboard camera, as well as blood alcohol or breathalyzer tests. Furthermore, our attorneys will track down valuable witness statements and expert testimony to prove your case.

Negotiations

Often times we will enter into negotiations with an attorney or the insurance company representing the drunk driver. This can happen at any point in the process, and will often take time before we settled on an amount that covers your damages. We advocate aggressively on behalf of our clients and will never take a settlement unless it a fair amount worthy of your losses. If an appropriate settlement cannot be reached then we will continue with the standard court proceedings.

Litigation

While most personal injury and wrongful death cases do not result in a trial, our lawyers have experience in court litigation and are prepared to see your case through to the best possible outcome. We will carefully present the evidence, as well as expert witness testimony to demonstrate the financial and emotional impact of the accident.

Damages

Since the burden of proof is lower in civil cases than in criminal court, our clients have a good chance of securing a favorable verdict. If negligence is proven, then the jury will determine who is liable for the accident the amount in damages owed to the victim. Lastly, the court will enter a final judgment and monetary award.
