New Year, Same Sobering Statistics

On the night of November 28, 2020, Monica Mendez received news that every parent and wife dreads-her husband and two young children had been involved in a fatal car accident. The accident occurred when David Geissen left the Roadhouse Bar and collided with the family’s car in Brazoria County. As a result of the tragic yet preventable accident, Ms. Mendez has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Mr. Geissen, Angleton Roadhouse Inc., and others.

Mr. Geissen made the decision to drive while heavily intoxicated, a decision that, unfortunately, far too many make during the holidays. The United States National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism has reported that drunk drivers play a role in 40% of traffic deaths over Christmas and New Year’s. For thousands of Americans, this holiday season will be one they will never forget. And not for the reasons we may think, but rather because this was the year they lost a loved one senselessly due to drunk driving.

When someone is injured or dies in a motor vehicle accident, financial recovery may be available. When a tragic event such as this occurs, it is important to find an experienced attorney who understands the intricacies of the injured party’s right to recover.
