El Paso Drunk Driving Accidents Attorney

Law Firm for DWI Crashes Serving Texas and New Mexico

No one expects to be hit by a drunk driver. We would all like to think that others are conscientious about not getting behind the wheel after having one drink too many, but sadly, some are not. Alcohol is not the only substance that contributes to traffic accidents. People who use drugs - including marijuana - also make up a significant percentage of intoxication accidents. The problem with intoxicated drivers is that they are wildly unpredictable, making it nearly impossible for sober drivers to prevent a collision.

If you have been injured by an intoxicated driver, the Cal Mundell Law Firm, PLLC may be able to help you recover compensation. You are not the one who chose to drink or use and then drive, so you should not be the one struggling with the consequences. The aftermath of a drunk driving accident can be costly on many levels. Cal will strive to ensure that you are compensated for every bit of harm done to you.

How an El Paso Attorney Can Help After a DWI Crash

The drunk driver who hit you might be facing criminal consequences, but there is a limit to how much that helps you. To recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and more, you will likely need to file a civil lawsuit. Cal can take over the legal matters in your case so that you can focus on your personal recovery.

Cal can negotiate with the drunk driver's insurance company in the hopes of reaching a speedy settlement after the accident. In many cases, this can be achieved, but we are more than ready to take your case to trial.

In Texas, we have a legal doctrine called "negligence per se" that can help simplify drunk driving accident litigation. When a person breaks a law that is in place for safety reasons and injures another person in the manner that the law aimed to prevent, they can be automatically deemed negligent.

In Texas and in New Mexico, driving while drunk or under the influence of drugs is illegal. This is a safety statute - it is in place to prevent intoxicated drivers from causing car accidents that injure others. When a person disobeys the law, drives drunk, and causes a crash, they are deemed "negligent per se." This can speed up the process of recovering compensation after a DWI crash.

Compensation Available After a DWI Crash

When you begin to add up the costs and losses you have experienced, it becomes clear that drunk driving accidents can be very costly. Cal may be able to help you recover compensation for expenses including:

  • Lost wages, including future lost wages if you will be out of work for a long time or permanently.
  • Medical costs, including the cost of ongoing or future treatment related to the accident.
  • Pain and suffering, both physical and emotional.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life for those with lasting or catastrophic injuries.

Wrongful Death Lawyer in El Paso

Sadly, drunk driving accidents are all too often fatal. If you have lost a close family member due to the careless actions of an intoxicated driver, you may be entitled to compensation. Filing a wrongful death action can help you recover your family member's lost income, as well as compensation for the noneconomic and irreparable harm done to your family. This type of lawsuit can help keep your family financially stable in the wake of a significant loss.
