Almost one out of every three traffic deaths involves someone driving while intoxicated. Texas leads the nation in drunk driving deaths. Every 90 seconds, someone is injured due to drunk driving. Almost one-third of drunk driving incidents are caused by repeat DWI offenders. In Texas, the legal limit for an adult’s blood alcohol content is .08%, but for a minor it is 0%. Depending on the age, weight, height, and sex of the driver, this limit can be reached in as little as one to three drinks.
Accidents caused by drunk driving are often the most serious auto accidents. Rarely is a drunk driving accident a slight rear-end collision caused by a driver’s failure to brake in time. Instead, drunk driving accidents usually are head-on and T-bone collisions at high rates of speed where the drunk driver failed to brake at all.
The unfortunate truth is that, despite the dangers of drunk driving and the seriousness of the consequences, many drivers get behind the wheel after they have been drinking. Drunk drivers completely disregard the law and safety of others and themselves. Those injured by drunk drivers, 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 unless you first speak to an experienced Carrollton personal injury attorney. This is especially true when a DWI was involved because drunk driving accidents are different! The insurance company likely does not ever want to defend a drunk driver at trial, yet the insurance company will never truly feel the threat of a lawsuit if you do not have an attorney.
