Even After Drunk Driver Kills Boy, Sentenced to Prison, Families Have a Right to Compensation

We discuss: If you're hurt by a drunk driver in Texas and they're sentenced to prison, can you still sue them? David Turano was sentenced to five to 12 years in prison after getting drunk and causing an auto wreck that killed 12-year-old Lenny Zupon, Jr. Last year, Turano decided to drive after drinking too much and ended up turning in front of another car, causing a deadly wreck. Zupon was killed as a result of his injuries. His father, who was driving, survived the car crash, but he's needed 11 surgeries since that day. There's no doubt that Turano's actions have caused the Zupon family great grief and his sentence to prison is warranted.
