Criminal versus Civil Punishment
It’s important to note that Texas laws are strict when it comes to driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In fact, many intoxicated drivers are convicted of misdemeanors or even felonies after a drunk driving arrest.
However, while criminal convictions may give victims a sense of justice, convictions don’t help the families struggling to pay medical bills after an accident or those who are too injured to work. This is where the attorneys at Anderson & Cummings can help.
Our experienced injury attorneys can file civil lawsuits against any parties who are liable for a drunk driving accident, including the driver, the driver’s insurance company, and any establishment that over-served the driver.

- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
