What You Should Do After Being Hit by a Drunk Driver
Your actions in the moments after a DUI accident are crucial, not only to your health and safety, but also to your case.
Call 911 – This is critical and should be your priority even if your injuries don’t seem severe. Many injuries are difficult to detect at first, and you want emergency personnel on the scene ASAP to help any other victims, as well as to begin creating a record of the accident.
Accept Medical Attention – Do not refuse medical attention for fear of the costs. Those costs can be recuperated when your case is won! It’s imperative that your injuries be treated right away and that they’re properly documented by medical professionals.
How Fault is Attributed in a Drunk Driving Case
Drunk drivers are often criminally charged and sentenced to prison. However, in many cases, it’s not just the driver who was responsible. Two Texas laws can hold other individuals liable, as well.
- The Dram Shop Liability law holds establishments such as bars, clubs and restaurants accountable when they continue to serve alcohol to an intoxicated patron who subsequently causes an accident
- The Social Host Liability law holds individuals responsible for serving alcohol to a minor who then causes a drunk driving accident
DUI accident victims can often seek justice by filing a civil suit under one of these laws. A civil lawsuit is a way to financially hold the person or institutions responsible for your family’s pain, suffering, and losses.
