Can you sue a drunk driver for hitting you?
Yes, you can. If they cause personal injury to you because of their negligence, they are liable for your injuries.

Our legal team has years of experience representing injured victims in drunk driving accidents and has recovered millions of dollars for our clients.
What are DUI laws in Texas?
It isn’t always possible to pursue a drunk driver accident lawsuit to a negligent party because they may be uninsured or underinsured. When this happens, we can try to pursue compensation from the person or establishment that provided the alcohol to the drunk driver responsible. The Dram Shop Statute says it must be apparent to the defendant at the time that the alcohol was sold and/or provided that the person consuming alcohol is intoxicated and they present a clear danger to themselves and those around them. This can lead to proximate cause of damages suffered.
