Texas DUI Crash Victim Attorney Working to Hold Drunk Drivers Accountable

Representing clients throughout Texas who have been injured by drunk drivers

 When drivers get behind the wheel under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they put the safety and welfare of everyone on the road at risk. Unfortunately, this type of reckless behavior can cause serious injury or even death to other drivers and passengers. Located in Cleburne, the Leland Reinhard Law Firm is dedicated to fighting for victims of DUI crashes in Texas and securing the compensation they are entitled to receive for their injuries. With over four decades of experience, I offer high-quality counsel and aggressive advocacy to help you pursue the justice you deserve.  

An aggressive litigator for drunk driving accident victims

If you’ve been hurt in an accident caused by a drunk driver, it’s crucial to take action to hold the reckless driver accountable for your injuries. Building a strong legal case demonstrating that your injuries were the direct result of the driver’s negligence increases the likelihood of a favorable settlement or jury verdict.

When clients work with me, they have an attorney on their side who will ensure they are informed of their legal rights and their options so they can make informed decisions regarding the best way to recover compensation. As an experienced litigator and adept negotiator, I know what it takes to work toward a favorable outcome for each of my clients and how to collect the evidence necessary to prove their cases.  

Compensation for victims of drunk driving accidents

A drunk driving accident can take a physical, emotional and financial toll on you and your family. It can also adversely impact your ability to earn a living. I work with you to help you obtain the economic and non-economic compensation you deserve. Economic damages reimburse tangible costs like medical bills and lost income while non-economic damages address harm such as pain and suffering that cannot be quantified in the same way. Some examples include:

  • Medical expenses — You may be entitled to receive reimbursement for your accident-related hospital stay, surgeries, emergency room treatment, doctor visits, physical therapy and other medical treatment.
  • Lost wages — If your accident-related injuries prevented you from working, you may be entitled to recover your lost income, in addition to any loss of earning capacity.
  • Out-of-pocket expenses — You may be eligible to recover the out-of-pocket expenses you incurred in connection with your accident-related medical treatment, such as the cost of traveling to and from doctor’s appointments.
  • Pain and suffering — Pain and suffering is a category of non-economic damages which is meant to compensate you for the physical pain and mental anguish you experienced due to your injuries.

In certain circumstances, a victim of a drunk driving accident may also be entitled to an award of punitive, or exemplary, damages, which are not meant to compensate a victim but meant to punish the drunk driver for their gross negligence and serve as a deterrent to other drunk drivers.
