DWI - driving while intoxicated

DWIs are one of the Leading Causes of Automobile Accidents

Oct 13, 2017 | Car Accidents, Personal Injury

Driving While Intoxicated is one of the leading causes of automobile accidents in the State of Texas.

In 2015, there were approximately 24,000 vehicle crashes related to alcohol. Of the 24,000 alcohol-related crashes, almost 900 of them were fatal. The great fear is that when the 2016 numbers will demonstrate an increase in these crashes.

The Recklessness of another person can change your life in an instant, and the impact of these decisions can last a lifetime.

Have you or a loved one been injured in an automobile crash as a result of someone else’s negligence? Who will be looking out for you?

DWI crashes are common place for Texas Roadways. In addition for the shocking statistics in 2015, Texas leads the United States in DWI’s each year. According to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) there were 3,039 deaths on Texas roadways in 2014. In general, over 65,500 serious injury crashes occurred in Texas in 2014. Over 89,000 people suffered serious injuries. In many cases, this occurred due to someone else’s negligence. These statistics become even more shocking as you dig down. Many of these deaths and serious injuries happen with the toxic combination of negligence and alcohol.

In my 37 years of practicing law, I have helped tens of thousands of victims who have been injured in automobile accidents as the result of driving while intoxicated, and I have decades of experience fighting for justice for the victims of DWI related crashes.

If you have been injured in a DWI related accident, or if a loved one has been injured or worse, don’t put your future in jeopardy by choosing an attorney that’s not prepared to handle the complexities of a DWI related crash.
