Drunk Driving Accidents

Undefeated Drunk Driver Accident Lawyers

Between 2014 and 2017, over one third of all fatal car accidents in Texas involved drunk drivers, resulting in 1,282 out of 3,353 fatal wrecks caused by drivers who were over the legal blood alcohol limit.

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

In the past 5 years alone, Zehl & Associates has recovered over $1 Billion 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 $100 Million settlement on behalf of workers who were injured in a refinery explosion.  The settlement is one of the largest industrial accident settlements in recent history.

The previous year, Ryan Zehl and Kevin Haynes 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 and Kevin 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.

I wanted to express my outmost gratitude and appreciation to the Zehl&Associates law firm for the excellent representation in my accident case in December 2016; even though it was a difficult case I could not have been more pleased with how they handled everything. They are very knowledgeable and clearly the top in their field. I would highly recommend them. Thanks Zehl&Associates.

I don’t think I can ever be thankful enough for Lamar DeLong. I’m a single mom, on my way home from work two weeks after I started my new job and two weeks after graduating from college, I was in a horrible car accident. My car was totaled and I was really badly hurt. Lamar took my case and didn’t stop until I was going to be fully taken care of. I now will have little worries about taking the time off of work to get the back and knee surgery I desperately need to be able to function normally. I’m 26, I’m a single parent and Lamar kept that in mind. Zehl&Associates really took care of me. Especially being in completely different cities. A thank you won’t be enough for this firm treating me like family and making sure I was taken care of. Thank you Lamar and all the staff involved in my case.

Ryan Zehl is the best, very nice, helpful, and compassionate. His firm works very hard to help you! I hired them because my brother was killed on a work site, the firm's track record, and they seemed to really care about their clients and cases. Thank you all at Zehl & Associates for your help.

Theres not enough stars to rate the true quality on here! Everything I've heard about lawyers went out the window when Eric took time on Father's day of all days to contact me back and help assist me with a settlement. I was in desperate need of legal advice & guidance and running out of time. Eric was quick, efficient, HONEST, and did more than beyond more to make sure I was legally protected & being treated fairly. I was at my giving up point on everything until that first conversation with Eric. Zehl Law definitely breaks the mold on lawyers. He was more interested in protecting me than trying to take money from me. Which is a rare thing to find in any industry or just people in general, which has definitely been my case involving everything else in my life. But of all people, a lawyer restored my faith in humanity itself. Thank you for that. Thank you for everything! You've been more than amazing!!!

Zehl and Associates took amazing care of me after my accident in January 2018. Lamar was kind, listened to all my fears, and helped me through the process of a lawsuit. I truly appreciate the care the office staff took with me whenever I called. Fantastic firm who were able to settle my case without ever stepping foot in court!

Zehl has been amazing and extremely helpful to our family since my husband was incolved in a plant expolosion in 2015. Everyone from the owner of the firm, Ryan, to each and everyone that has answered the phone has always been more than willing to help in anyway possible. The staff always checked on our family to be sure we had all we needed and showed to really care! I would recommend Zehl and associates to anyone looking for a lawyer to fight a good fight and make sure all clients’ needs are met at the same time!

My husband got injured and we had no idea what to do or where to go. Dealing with personal injury is challenging. Zehl & Associates handled our case from beginning to the end and we could not have been more impressed. Matt, your professionalism is appreciated. Thank you very much for all you have done for us. If anyone is looking for a personal injury attorney, this is the place to go.
