Texas accident lawyerOn December 10, 2017, one woman was killed when her car was struck head-on by a Suburban that had veered into her lane of traffic on Culebra Road. The driver was under the influence. Such stories are unfortunately not unusual on San Antonio roads, and those left behind after crashes of such severity are inevitably both injured and grieving. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a negligent car crash, especially if alcohol is suspected, you may have a claim for your own injuries, and also possibly for wrongful death, as the deceased woman’s husband may choose to pursue.

Wrongful Death and Personal Injury

If you have been injured due to another driver’s actions, you may be able to recover damages to help pay your medical bills. There are four criteria that must be met in a Texas negligence case. You must be able to demonstrate to the court that (1) a duty of care between motorists existed (which is established by law in the Texas Transportation Code); (2) that duty was breached; (3) the breach was directly due to the defendant’s conduct, with no other cause; and (4) because of that breach of duty, you were tangibly injured - not necessarily physically, but in a manner more serious than cuts and bruises or a simple shock. If you can demonstrate these points while showing that you were not more than 51 percent responsible for your own injuries, you will likely be able to recover.


The sooner you call, the sooner we can build your case, secure evidence and get maximum compensation for your injuries.
