A lawsuit and criminal charges against the driver are two separate issues. While the driver will hopefully be prosecuted for charges related to the accident, it is also possible for you to sue for your damages and losses.
Suing for a Dallas car accident caused by a drunk driver can help you recover your losses; it can allow you to get the compensation you need to begin your road to recovery. Losses commonly associated with a serious car accident include:
- Hospital bills
- Costs of ongoing medical care
- Mental and physical therapy
- Property damage (repair or replacement of your vehicle)
- Loss of earning capacity
- Loss of life
