In Texas, the legal limit for an adult’s blood alcohol content is .08%. Depending on the age, weight, height, and sex of the driver, this limit can be reached in as little as one to three drinks. These statistics from M.A.D.D. may shock you:
Accidents caused by drunk driving are often the most serious car accidents.
A drunk driving accident is rarely a slight rear-end collision caused by a driver’s failure to brake in time. Instead, drunk driving accidents are usually catastrophic head-on or t-bone collisions at high rates of speed where the drunk driver failed to brake at all.
Those injured by drunk driver, or families of those who have been killed by a drunk driver, have the right under the law to be compensated.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a drunk driver, do not accept a settlement offer before you speak to an experienced Carrollton Injury Law attorney. The insurance company will likely offer a higher settlement amount to avoid a lawsuit where they would have to defend a drunk driver, but they won’t truly feel the threat of a lawsuit if you do not have an attorney.
