Drunk Driving Accidents

Accidents Caused by DUI and DWI

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, accidents caused by drunk driving accounted for only 4% of traffic accidents statewide in 2012. While drunk driving is one of the least common cause for accidents, DWI accidents are the number-one cause of deaths on Texas roads. One-third of all fatal accidents throughout the state can be attributed to driving while intoxicated by drugs, resulting in thousands of injuries and deaths.

Victims and families harmed by drunk drivers have the right to pursue financial compensation for their damages. To learn more about your rights as a victim and how The Daspit Law Firm may be able to help you, contact us today for a FREE case evaluation.

Why is Drunk Driving So Dangerous?

Driving drunk slows down the responsiveness of a driver. If a collision is imminent, a drunk driver may not be able to react as quickly as a sober driver to avoid the crash. To add to this problem, most drunk driving accidents occur at night, when visibility is decreased. This deadly combination accounts for the fact that more than 80% of drunk driving collisions in Texas occur between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m., with the most deaths occurring between 2:00 and 3:00 a.m.

Drunk drivers are not only a danger to themselves, but to others around them as well. If you have been involved in an accident caused by a driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you have many challenges ahead of you on the road to a resolution. It is in your best interests to seek the help of an attorney to make sure that you have support every step of the way.

Who is Liable in a Drunk Driving Accident?

It may seem fairly obvious that a person who has caused an accident because they were driving drunk would be responsible for any damage or injury that they caused. However, insurance companies may still attempt to shift the blame away from the driver in order to avoid having to pay more than what is minimally necessary. A personal injury lawyer with experience in the area of DWI accidents can help you with your claim in order to fight for a fair amount of compensation and ensure that insurance companies do not get away with attempts to minimize your claim.

    “I can't say enough about the service I received at Daspit Law Firm. I was referred to them by my brother in law. Best advice I ever received! They exceeded all of my expectations. Extremely impressed with the communication through out the whole process! I highly recommend Daspit Law!”

  • Thank you so much Daspit!!

    “Thank you so much Daspit!! You made the accident that I was in not so traumatizing. When I was hit by a person who was not from Houston and did not know downtown well he at first was sorry and admitted it was his fault until the cops showed up. From that point on I was in a panic until I entered your office and you guided me through.I recommend Daspit to anyone who wants to be treated with compassion and needs true guidance through the law.”
