Drunk Driving Accidents and the Holiday Season: What Texans Need to Know


The holiday season often comes with parties and get-togethers to spend time with loved ones and celebrate the past year together. However, while the holidays can be joyous, there is often more opportunity to drink alcohol at these celebrations.

Can You File a Personal Injury Claim After a Drunk Driving Accident During the Holidays?

From holiday work parties to family holiday dinners, the holiday season is packed full of occasions in which alcohol may be flowing. As a result, it is imperative that those who drink act responsibly and do not get behind the wheel. Unfortunately, not everyone will uphold their duty not to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and, as a result, may cause a damaging crash.  

If you were involved in an accident caused by a drunk driver, you have the right to file a personal injury claim. Filing a personal injury claim will not only ensure you get the justice and fair compensation you deserve, it will also lead to the drunk driver being held responsible for their negligent actions. To file a strong personal injury claim, it is essential you contact a trusted drunk driving accident lawyer with experience handling cases in Texas. 

Proving Liability in a Holiday Drunk Driving Accident

To ensure that your personal injury claim is strong, you and your lawyer must identify the at-fault party and prove their liability. While it may seem obvious that the at-fault party is the drunk driver, there are other parties that could hold partial liability in addition to the driver who hit you, like the bar that over-served them. 

Once the liable party has been identified, the next step is to prove their liability. Your lawyer will launch a full investigation into the details of your case and collect evidence of the factors of negligence. The factors of negligence are necessary to prove liability in a drunk driving accident case and include the following:

  • The liable party owed you a duty of care
  • The duty of care was breached
  • The breach of duty caused the drunk driving accident and your subsequent injuries
  • You suffered a loss as a result
