Texas Dram Shop Liability Lawyer
Car accidents are devastating enough without having been hit by a drunk driver. These DWI accidents often result in minor injuries to the drunk driver and serious, life-altering injuries to the innocent victims that were driving or passengers in other vehicles that were struck by the drunk driver.
At the Law Offices of Glenn W. Cunningham, we are dedicated to helping clients deal with the aftermath of a drunk driving accident. Our firm puts clients' needs first, seeking compensation from all parties that contributed to the accident, including the drunk driver and any establishment that over-served alcohol to that person. Focusing our representation on handling serious injury cases, we stand up for the rights of clients who have suffered brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, or other catastrophic injuries, or who have suffered the wrongful death of a loved one in San Antonio and throughout South Texas.
Under the guidance of experienced and highly respected attorney Glenn W. Cunningham, our firm is aggressive in its pursuit of justice and compensation for those who have been injured or had their lives drastically altered by a drunk driver. Contact us to learn how we can help.
Taking Action Against the Drunk Driver
After an accident, the drunk driving victim may not know his or her rights and what to do next. Our firm takes the time to meet with clients, assessing their situations and helping them understand how to take action against the drunk driver. Whether we file suit directly against the drunk driver or the establishment that got him drunk, our firm is tireless in our pursuit of justice and compensation for the lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering that you now have to deal with.
Dram Shop Laws
First enacted in Texas in 1987, the Texas Dram Shop Act established a cause of action for providing, selling or serving an alcoholic beverage to an individual who was "obviously intoxicated to the extent that he presented a clear danger to himself and others" at the time he was provided with, sold or served alcohol, and his intoxication was a proximate cause of the damages suffered. (Tex. Alco. Bev. Code § 2.02.)
This means that the bar, restaurant or other alcohol-serving establishment that served the individual who ultimately caused your injuries in a drunk driving accident may be responsible for compensating you for damages and losses. We are committed to helping clients take action against even the largest establishment that contributed to the intoxication of the driver that injured you or your family members. These parties must be held responsible for their negligent actions.
