What Damages Can I Receive for a DUI Accident Claim in Dallas, TX?

You can demand compensation for your financial losses caused by the drunk driving accident. Financial losses are called economic damages. Examples of these damages include:

  • Medical bills and expenses
  • Personal care and/or nursing care
  • Lost wages
  • Out-of-pocket expenses
  • Physical therapy and other rehabilitative care
  • Decreased future earning capacity

In addition to your financial damages, you can also recover compensation for the pain and suffering caused by the accident. These damages are called non-economic damages and include the following:

  • Physical injuries and pain
  • Emotional distress
  • Disabilities and impairments
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Mental anguish
  • Diminished quality of life

The amount you receive for your damages could be reduced under Texas contributory fault laws if you were partially to blame for causing the accident. Our Dallas car accident lawyer knows how insurance companies treat victims and is prepared to fight these allegations.

What Is the Deadline To File a Dallas DUI Accident Claim in Texas?

Most car accident claims must be filed within two years of the accident date. However, there are exceptions to the Texas statute of limitations for personal injury cases. Therefore, you could have less time or more time to file.

If you fail to file your claim before the deadline expires, you lose the right to pursue a legal claim against the drunk driver. The best way to avoid this problem is to call Jay Murray Personal Injury Lawyers now to speak with an attorney.
