Houston Drunk Driving Accident Attorney
Making Drunk Drivers Pay
Have you or a loved one been in a car accident caused by a drunk driver?
Drunk driving is clearly an act of negligence. Our attorneys are dedicated to holding drivers accountable for accidents involving DUI/DWI. With more than 30 years of experience on our side, we know the steps to take to pursue compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering, the cost of medical care and more.
You pay nothing unless we win your case. At the personal injury law firm of The Gerardo Cantu Law Firm, P.C. in Houston, Texas, we handle all DUI/DWI accident cases on a contingency basis.
Car Accident Cases Involving DUI/DWI
Typically, claims made in car accident cases are civil actions. This means that our accident lawyers will make a civil claim against the other driver’s insurance company. We will ask them to provide fair compensation.
However, car accidents involving DUI/DWI are not typical cases. DUI/DWI is a criminal matter. Because of this, you may have the right to seek punitive damages. Punitive damages are additional payments that the negligent driver must provide to you as a form of punishment for driving while drunk.
Investigating Car Accident Cases
In most cases, it is revealed fairly quickly that the negligent driver was drunk. A failed sobriety test conducted by the police officer that arrives at the scene is all the evidence we need to get started down the right path.
Of course, like in all other car accident cases, we will also conduct a thorough investigation that involves reviewing the accident scene, getting witness statements, looking at the accident report, examining medical evidence and more.
You can be confident that we will take every necessary step to get you the compensation you deserve.
