Criminal DWI Case vs. Civil Injury Case
The drunk driver who caused your accident may face criminal DWI charges. In a criminal case, the prosecution must establish the defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
The standard of proof is lower in a civil case. If you take civil action against the defendant in the form of a personal injury action, you must prove liability by a preponderance of the evidence.
So, even if the drunk driver is not convicted of DWI, you may still pursue a civil claim. Call us at 713-850-8600 for a free case evaluation to see if we may be able to help you with your drunk driving accident case.
Act Before the Statute of Limitations Runs Out
Under Texas law, you have two years to file a lawsuit for a personal injury that another party caused, including injuries caused by a drunk driver.
If you fail to act within the statute of limitations, you may be unable to take legal action to pursue a recovery for your damages. So, act quickly before the deadline passes.
