Drunk Driving Accidents

Undefeated Drunk Driver Accident Lawyers

Between 2016 and 2022, over one third of all fatal car accidents in Texas involved drunk drivers, resulting in 1,272 out of 3,393 fatal wrecks caused by drivers who were over the legal blood alcohol limit.

Our Undefeated Houston Personal Injury Lawyers understand the devastating consequences that result from drunk drivers and have the resources, experience and ability to hold them accountable.

Zehl & Associates has recovered Billions in verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients across Texas and the United States who were injured in serious car, truck and bus accidents—many of which set records as the largest verdicts and settlements in our opponents’ histories.

Just recently, for example, our Personal Injury Lawyers reached a $23.5 Million settlement on behalf of a client who was injured in a head-on car accident.  The settlement is the largest motor-vehicle accident settlement in Texas.

The previous year, Ryan Zehl recovered 2 of the largest settlements in Texas, as well as a$4.2 Million Verdict against R&L Trucking, the largest private trucking company in the country.  R&L’s driver rear-ended our client on the highway, causing her vehicle to flip over and our client to suffer head and lower back injuries. R&L offered less than $150,000 to settle the case before trial.

The verdict is the largest verdict ever awarded against R&L in the company’s history.

Ryan also received an $18.8 Million Verdict against Greyhound Bus Company, on behalf of a bus passenger who injured her lower back when the Greyhound bus rolled over on icy roads.

Our verdict was the #1 Largest Accident Verdict in Texas, and remains the Largest Verdict in Greyhound’s History.

What to Do After Drunk Driving Accident

While proving that the other driver was drunk or otherwise intoxicated is often difficult and expensive, it substantially increases the value of your case.

Having worked with leading toxicologists and accident reconstruction experts across the country, our Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers have the experience and resources needed to prove intoxication and ensure that you and your family recover the damages you deserve.  We do this by using evidence from the scene to recreate the collision and evaluate the other driver’s perception and reaction times and evasive maneuvers.

Our Accident Attorneys use this evidence, even in the absence of drug or sobriety tests, to establish intoxication through impaired reaction times and absence of any evasive maneuvers.

Remember, the at-fault driver’s employer or insurance company is focused on trying to settle your case for as little money as possible. Their “claims adjusters” and agents will try to convince you that you don’t have a strong case, that you’re not severely injured, or that they are making you a “good deal.” Don’t fall for it.
