Advocating For The Victims Of Drunk Driving, Reckless Driving And Distracted Driving

When a driver acts recklessly, aggressively or drives drunk they are held responsible for their actions. It is their insurance company's responsibility to cover any costs that the driver incurs by such behavior. That is why drivers are required to carry insurance. It is a Texas law.

At Chris Pettit & Associates, P.C., we have helped hundreds of victims of accidents receive the compensation they are due. In over four decades our personal injury attorneys have recovered millions in damages for our clients. If you have been hit and seriously injured by a drunk driver, texting driver or aggressive driver, we can help.

For Every Wrong There Is A Remedy

While there are plenty of personal injury attorneys who are satisfied to take the first settlement the insurance company offers, we are not one of those firms. We know what medical costs, lost wages, lost property, physical pain, family strain and setbacks a serious injury creates. Because many of our attorneys used to work for big companies and insurance companies we have a deep and keen understanding about what a true and complete compensation offer looks like.

Negligent drivers are drivers who have been:

  • Reckless driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Driving aggressively

Car accident victims are entitled to more than just having their medical bills covered. They are, under the law, entitled to be "made whole" again. This means to pursue all courses of action that will bring you back to the state you were in before the accident. This can include long term physical or occupational therapy, child care and home care services.

Seeking Punitive Damages After An Accident

Sometimes an accident or crash is more than just carelessness on the part of the driver. A driver can behave recklessly and even aggressively. "Punitive damages" are the compensation that is beyond admitting fault or mere negligence. Punitive damages are intended to punish the negligent person who caused the harm. Punitive damages are awarded when there is egregious or outstandingly bad behavior on the part of the negligent party. If a compensation package does not cover your costs we are prepared to purse negligent drivers in a civil litigation suit. If someone you love was involved in a fatal car accident we can help.
