WHAT DAMAGES MAY BE RECOVERED?
As some of the most dangerous and destructive accidents, DWI-related crashes can result in extensive damages. Glen Larson Law works to recover maximum restitution for victims of these accidents.
Some damages that our Austin injury lawyers can seek compensation for include:
- Medical expenses

WHAT ARE PUNITIVE DAMAGES?
In regular personal injury or Austin car accident cases, compensation can be recovered for any damages experienced, ranging from medical bills to mental pain and suffering. Punitive damages take it a step further, however, and are typically reserved for more serious cases involving gross negligence.
Drunk driving accident cases often allow for punitive damages to be pursued due to the dangerous and blatantly reckless conduct of the driver. These are additional damages awarded on top of the initial compensation to help hold the negligent party accountable and send a message to others. They are assessed as a civil punishment for gross acts of negligence/reckless behavior.
