Drunk Driving Accidents
Drinking and driving is one of the leading causes of car accidents in Texas. No matter what the circumstances and what tragedies occur, alcohol-related crashes are inexcusable because they could have been prevented by not driving a car while intoxicated. The attorneys at the Browning Law Firm aggressively pursue drunk drivers who injure innocent people with zero tolerance.
In Texas, a driver can be charged with a DWI (driving while intoxicated) if the person operates a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (B.A.C.) of .08 or more or without the normal use of his mental and physical faculties. In addition to the drunk driver responsible for causing the car accident and injuries, drinking establishments and social hosts may also be held responsible.
The term “Dram Shop” refers to a drinking establishment such as a bar, lounge or restaurant or anywhere alcohol is purchased and consumed on the premises. Texas’ Dram Shop Act is a statute that imposes liability on persons or drinking establishments that sell alcohol to someone obviously intoxicated. If a person or persons are injured or killed, the establishment may be held legally responsible.
The most common types of drunk driving accidents in Texas are auto accidents involving two cars. However, alcohol-related accidents also include pedestrians, semi truck collisions, motorcycle crashes, bicycle accidents, and boating accidents. Injuries can be serious such as broken bones, head/neck/spinal cord injuries, brain injury and wrongful death.
