Attorney for Texas Drunk Driving Victims
Drunk driving or driving while impaired (DWI) is one of the leading causes of auto accidents in the United States. According to figures released by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), 10,076 people died in drunk driving crashes in 2013 – which is one person every 52 minutes. More than 290,000 people were injured as a result of a drunk driver that same year. These are shocking numbers that highlight the seriousness of driving while impaired or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. At Rad Law Firm, we aggressively pursue claims against drunk drivers for serious injuries and death. Driving a car after drinking is a grossly negligent act that can have deadly consequences.
Drunk drivers kill or injure thousands of people – both adults and children – each year and Texas allows for victims to be compensated for the negligent acts of drivers. DWI law in Texas falls under penal code section 49.04. Driving while intoxicated is considered a class B misdemeanor. The legal limit in regards to blood alcohol concentration (BAC) in Texas while driving is 0.08%. Texas is considered a zero-tolerance state pertaining to underage drinking; any detectable amount (.02% BAC or greater) of alcohol in drivers under 21 is considered a crime. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a drunk or impaired driver, contact Rad Law Firm right away. Our lawyers have the experience and knowledge necessary to represent you in a court of law where we will fight diligently to get you the compensation you deserve.
Drunk Driving Stats
Shockingly, Texas had the highest number of deaths related to drunk or impaired drivers in both 2012 and 2013, reporting 1,290 and 1.337 deaths each year, respectively. While the number of drunk driving deaths has been cut in half over the last 25 years, these types of accidents still take place at an alarming rate. In addition to pressing criminal charges, the victims of drunk driving accidents and their families have the legal right to pursue claims in a court of law in order to recover monetary damages. If a drunk or impaired driver is arrested for, or convicted of, a DUI or DWI in Texas, you have the right to file a civil claim right away. We understand how stressful and emotionally taxing these types of cases can be, which is where an attorney from our Fort Worth law firm comes in.
