In 2012, approximately 47,585 car collisions happened in Houston, some of which were head-on. Whenever head-on collisions occur after hours, the cause is usually drunk driving. On weekends, drunk drivers are most commonly on the roads between midnight and 6:00 a.m. and they often veer into opposite lanes, speed, and break traffic laws. Those injured in car accidents caused by drunk driving should immediately seek help from an experienced Texas personal injury lawyer.
