Texas Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) ranks Texas second to worst regarding drunk driving problems in the USA.  According to MADD.org, in 2011, drunk driving fatalities accounted for 42% of all accident fatalities in Texas.  There were almost 1,300 fatalities as a result of drunk driving accidents in 2011.  Drunk driving has continued to be a very serious problem in Texas and has led to the injuries and deaths of many innocent Texans.

If you or a family member has been injured or killed as the result of a drunk driving accident, you need experienced and proven Texas drunk driving accident lawyers to stand up for your rights.  Justin Hill is an experienced Texas drunk driving accident lawyer with offices in Houston and San Antonio, Texas.  He has served on the advisory council for MADD South Texas for many years, and he has experience in handling all the issues that arise from drunk driving accidents.

Drunk driving accidents potentially give rise to a number of causes of action.  The lawyers at Hill Law Firm, are experienced in handling all types of cases arising from drunk driving accidents.  With every drunk driving accident victim, Hill Law Firm will review whether the accident gives rise to the following causes of action:

Quotes from Drunk Driving Accident Victims represented by Justin Hill:

“About three years ago I became a victim of a drunk driving accident. My mom reached out to MADD for help. They said I was in need of legal representation and Justin was on their list of suggested attorneys.  Justin explained all of my rights as a victim and promised that he would do everything he could to make the best of the situation that I was in. He made it clear from the beginning that he was an attorney that was only interested in helping true victims, not people who were out to make a few extra dollars.  I felt very comfortable with Justin and his team. They kept me informed every step of the way and explained the progress of the case in terms that I was able to understand. Justin always seemed knowledgeable on the laws and my rights. He fought hard for me and explored every possible avenue to give me the best outcome. In the end, he was able to settle my case with the insurance companies for more than what was initially expected.  I would be happy to recommend Justin to anyone who is in need of legal representation. Just is extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy, responsive, and sensitive to my needs not only as a client but as a person as well. If I am ever in need of an attorney again (hopefully not!) I’ll definitely be contacting Justin and his team again!.”  Client in 2011

“I recommend Justin Hill for legal representation in the areas of negligence in company’ safety policies in the trucking industry, drunk driving, texting while driving and personal injury cases. Justin worked hard to pursue justice in our case. A DWI employee that was driving with a suspended license while working collided head on with my daughter while she was driving. Justin Hill’s professional knowledge of the laws and procedures involving our case,his skills in mediation, his sensitivity and understanding of the traumatic experience of the DWI as it impacted my daughter along with myself and husband were out standing and to be commended.  Justin’s ability to present information, provide structure and meaning to our sessions with him along with his ability to listen and be patient with our feelings as we processed are to be commended. He always listened to our concerns and kept us up to date on the case. I am happy to share with you that the case had a successful ending on many levels. Not only did my daughter receive a monetary settlement, but she also received a non-monetary settlement involving company policy changes that will hopefully prevent further DWI’s. I believed this case moved quickly due to his investment, hard work and commitment.  We are grateful for Justin Hill for putting a value on life by “fighting” for these settlements and presenting the non-monetary settlement involving policy changes which created a more responsible corporate citizen as an outcome for this company involved in our DWI case.” Client in 2008
