Wrongful death claims can be filed after fatal DUI collisions

Despite all of the public education regarding impaired driving, DWI-related fatalities are still pretty common in Texas. Losing a loved one the hands of a drunk or otherwise impaired driver can be devastating in a number of ways. Aside from the emotional damages done, the financial toll from an accident like this can push the victim's surviving family members to their breaking point. A wrongful death claim can be filed to pursue recovery of any resulting monetary losses.

When it comes to filing a wrongful death claim, timing is key. Some may wish to wait until after any criminal proceedings have concluded against the individual deemed responsible for the accident; however, waiting may affect how much that individual's insurance provider will pay out. Along with the potential of losing out on insurance benefits, prolonging any civil claims can place the full financial burden directly on the victim's family members. Funeral expenses, medical expenses, lost wages and benefits all add up quickly and can lead to financial ruin.

An attorney with experience in fatal DWI cases can help you pursue the maximum amount of compensation for the damages sustained in a fatal collision. Legal actions can be taken against the person believed responsible for the incident, his or her insurance provider and, in some cases, any commercial establishments responsible for serving the accused individual alcohol or other impairing substances.

Legal claims, if handled in a timely manner, may result in such compensation. An experienced attorney can answer any questions and guide surviving family members through the process of filing and litigating a wrongful death claim.
