Have you been involved in an auto accident caused by a drunk driver?
Sadly, many people have been impacted or know someone whose life has been impacted by a drunk-driving accident. According to the CDC, 13,592 people were killed in crashed involving an alcohol-impaired driver in Texas from 2009-2018.
Despite decades of drunk driving awareness campaigns worldwide, people still decide to get behind the wheel while impaired from the effects of alcohol. Drunk driving is a choice and is negligent.
When is it considered an impairment?
In Texas, you are legally intoxicated when your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) reaches 0.08%. Even if your BAC is less than 0.08%, if the alcohol you have consumed affects your ability to function normally, you are impaired. You place your life and the lives of others in danger when you choose to get behind the wheel while impaired.
Not all drunk driving accidents are fatal, but they often entail serious medical and financial consequences. No family member or loved one should ever have to deal with the after-effects of someone else’s negligence of getting behind the wheel while intoxicated.
