Drunk Driving Accidents
Were you injured because of a drunk driver’s negligence?
In the state of Texas, it is illegal to drink and drive. That does not, however, stop the large number of drunk driving accidents that take place. When alcohol is combined with driving, accidents are more likely to occur because people are impaired and cannot think as clear as when they are sober. At least 400 people, closer to 500 people die each year in accidents that had a driver with some amount of alcohol in their system. Drinking and driving is a problem even today and there are many victims involved in accidents due to the negligence of an impaired driver. There are many areas in which you may be eligible to receive compensation if you were a victim in a drunk driving accident, including:
Lowered earning capacity
Pain and suffering
Psychological and emotional damage
Texas does not tolerate driving while over the legal limit. The law is on your side if someone hit you while they were alcohol-impaired.
