Drunk drivers are involved in about a third of the fatal motor vehicle accidents that occur in the U.S., according to research from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. With more than 33,000 lives lost every year on the nation’s roads, that figure translates to nearly 11,000 deaths, or about one alcohol-related traffic death every 45 minutes. In Texas, the percentage of fatalities attributable to drunk drivers is higher.

In Texas, motorists with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or more are considered drunk drivers. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration confirms that drunk drivers kill more than 1,200 people in our state in a year’s time – more than 3 people every day. In fact, a higher proportion of people in Texas lose their lives to drunk drivers than in the U.S. as a whole – 40% versus 32%.

Because of the stigma and the potential penalties attached to drunk driving, motorists who are suspected of harming someone in a drunk-driving accident are likely to try and avoid taking responsibility. At the Goolsby Law Firm, Dallas Car Accident Lawyer Mike Goolsby knows how to work with investigators, police officers, and other involved parties to determine the facts surrounding the accident that injured you. He knows that drunk drivers may be so impaired that they fail to slow down, brake properly, or take other precautionary action in a traffic crash. That means alcohol-related accidents can cause especially serious injuries, leaving you unable to work and in need of expensive medical treatment – perhaps for a long time. Without your regular paycheck, your family’s well-being, along with your own, could be at risk.
