Defend Yourself From Felony DWI-Injury Charges

Causing serious injury to another person while driving drunk in Texas is a felony offense. Whether by accident or not, an injury that causes risk of death, permanent disfigurement or impairment of any bodily member or organ is classified as a third-degree felony in the state of Texas.

Intoxication assault is punishable as a second-degree felony in the following situations:

  • DWI accident causing serious or permanent brain injury
  • DWI accident causing injury to a police officer, firefighter or emergency worker
