Alcohol-Impaired Car Accidents In Texas
During 2015, the state of Texas ranked highest in the number of fatal DUI accidents. Sadly, more than 1,323 individuals lost their lives. Although the number of DUI related fatalities is slowly declining, these senseless and entirely preventable accidents still occur. When victims sustain fatal injuries, they leave behind friends and families to suffer.
When victims are killed by impaired drivers, surviving family members can file wrongful death lawsuits against the at-fault party by contacting a Texas wrongful death attorney. Various parties can be held liable for the injuries and death resulting from accidents caused by drunk drivers.
