According to Texas law, intoxicated while driving means having a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 or higher. Regardless of the BAC, a person is considered intoxicated and driving under the influence if impaired in any way. A typical drinker can achieve that level of drunkenness with two or three drinks in an hour. For women and adolescents, drinking one or two drinks in an hour may lead even more rapidly to a BAC of 0.08.
If you are in an automobile accident with a driver you believe to be intoxicated, call the police. Police officers frequently detain a driver suspected of being drunk or under the influence of a substance. If the driver is found guilty, a criminal prosecution may be brought against them, and they may be sentenced to penalties, have their license suspended, or possibly go to jail.
While a criminal prosecution results in punishment for the driver, it frequently accomplishes nothing for the people the driver hurt in collisions. Seeking compensation for injuries resulting from a collision with an intoxicated driver is unrelated to the criminal processes. Our attorneys can assist you in pursuing the settlement you are due. The civil claim against an intoxicated driver begins when they are deemed to be driving while under the influence and are a danger to others.

In addition, to the intoxicated driver at the wheel being culpable, bars and restaurants in Texas can be held liable for drunk driving accidents in certain situations. The law determining whether a bar or other establishment can be held liable is called the “Dram Shop Act.” A bar or restaurant can be held additionally responsible if they serve an individual who is “obviously” intoxicated. As one might expect, most Dram Shop charges center on whether the defendant was served alcohol while they were obviously intoxicated. In these situations, witnesses, security footage, bar receipts, and toxicology records are frequently used as evidence. Reynaldo Diaz and his team have experience collecting facts related to toxicology reports and the necessary information pertaining to the establishment serving alcohol, as well as experts to interpret and analyze the data.
