How to handle a Texas drunk driving accident

Despite the known risks of drinking and driving, some people decide to get behind the wheel anyway. They feel that they are sober enough to drive, not thinking about what this could mean to them or other people who are on the road at the same time.

Every year throughout the state of Texas, drunk driving accidents injure and kill thousands of people.

In 2009, for example, more than a million people were injured in alcohol related motor vehicle accidents.

If involved in a drunk driving accident, there is nothing more important than receiving immediate medical attention. Your health is priority number one, and you don't want to delay in getting the assistance you require.

Once you are stable and have a treatment plan in place, it is time to consider your legal options. Texas personal injury law requires that a personal injury claim be filed within two years of the accident date. For this reason, you do not want to wait too long to consult with an attorney.

Even if you don't think you have a claim, you don't want to give up just yet. If you have suffered any injury or financial loss, an attorney can help you recover some money.

Serious motor vehicle accidents can result in disabling injuries or even death. Even if you are sober and obeying the rules of the road, somebody else could be drunk and taking a big risk by driving. To learn more about your rights, the impact of drunk driving accidents and how to proceed following an accident, read over our "Hit By a Drunk Driver" webpage.
