Drunk Driver Accidents are one of many types of accidents that can be avoided if people refrain from driving after drinking any amount of alcohol. Numerous scientific studies have shown that drinking alcohol has negative effects on a person's brain and central nervous system, which impairs their thinking, reasoning and muscle coordination. Driving a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol is not only a crime but also has serious and possibly deadly consequences. In Texas, approximately 1,000 people per year die in Drunk Driver Accidents, which accounts for about 30% of all accident-related fatalities in the state. More alcohol-related accidents are reported between 2:00 a.m. and 2:59 a.m. than any other hour of the day. Also, the overwhelming majority of these accidents occurred on Saturday and Sunday than any other days of the week.
It is important to note that after a Drunk Driver Accident has occurred, the local authorities and insurance companies will begin investigating immediately after the accident. They will begin securing valuable evidence in the form of statements, photographs, videos, etc. If you or your loved ones have been injured in a Drunk Driver Accident, it is imperative to immediately hire a law firm that knows how to fight for YOUR rights against drunk drivers and opposing insurance companies.
