When you are hurt by someone who chose to drive drunk, it seems obvious that the driver was wrong—and who would argue with you? However, many victims of drunk drivers in Texas end up having to fight for their rights after a crash—and fighting to legally prove that the driver was wrong and should be held accountable.
Why Victims Of Texas Drunk Drivers Must Fight For Their Rights
What is obvious to anyone with a little common sense isn’t always obvious when it comes to the legal realm. Intoxicated drivers may be arrested, but truly holding drunk drivers accountable for the pain they cause sometimes takes more than the criminal process. While intoxicated drivers are breaking the law and usually face criminal repercussions for their actions, the criminal courts in Texas are not responsible for compensating victims. Instead, victims must attempt to recover what they need from the other driver and his and her insurance company.
Although the other driver’s insurance company may seem to be concerned for your well-being and willing to help, some crash victims are surprised at the low-ball offers, delays, and complications they run into with the claims process. Victims often have to sue the drunk driver in order to recover the compensation they truly deserve for their injuries and difficulties, and unfortunately, this isn’t always easy, either.
