What Compensation Can I Recover for DUI-Related Injuries?


Many drivers arrested for DUI do not realize the long-term consequences of their actions like causing injuries to others. If you have been injured in a collision due to a driver’s decision to drive under the influence, you may have legal recourse to hold them accountable for damages. This may include vehicle repair and replacement costs, medical expenses, lost wages, and other losses. In some cases, the bar that served the drunk driver too much alcohol may also be responsible for the accident under the Texas Dram Shop Law.

Recoverable Compensation for DUI-Related Injuries

Victims of DUI-related injuries often suffer physical, emotional, and financial hardships. These losses deserve recognition, so our knowledgeable lawyers work to calculate your claim’s worth accurately. Depending on the severity of your injuries and accident circumstances, you may recover economic and non-economic damages, which include the following:


Economic damages involve losses with tangible monetary value. These often include the following:

  • Past and future medical expenses, like hospital bills, surgery costs, and ambulance ride fees
  • Lost wages from missed work
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Property damage

We may use medical records, pay stubs, tax returns, and other receipts and invoices to calculate these damages and prove their value.


Non-economic damages are more subjective and involve non-monetary losses, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Mental anguish
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Disability or disfigurement

These types of damages are less straightforward to calculate. Therefore, at Kuzmich Law P.C., we evaluate how your injuries affected your quality of life, how long recovery will take, and if you suffered permanent harm so you may receive accurate compensation for these losses.
