INJURY FROM DRUNK DRIVER

Texas Leads the Nation in Drunk Driving Deaths

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: 

  • Every 90 seconds, someone is injured due to drunk driving
  • In 2020, 30% of all traffic fatalities involved a drunk driver – that means almost 1 out of every 3 traffic deaths involves someone driving while intoxicated
  • About one-third of drunk driving incidents are caused by repeat DWI offenders

The unfortunate truth is that, despite the dangers and consequences of drunk driving, many drivers still get behind the wheel after they have been drinking. Drunk drivers completely disregard the law, the safety of others, and their own safety when they drink and drive.

Drunk Driving Accidents are More Serious

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.
