After the accident: having a third party do battle on your behalf

For many drivers, their only experiences with drunk driving will be the "scared straight" drunk driving videos they are forced to watch during driver's ed. The videos that end with a smashed pumpkin as the only witness to a drunken father who ran over his toddler; a toddler who, moments before, was standing at the foot of his driveway excitedly waiting to show off his Halloween costume. Or the flashing lights of the police vehicle that illuminate the gory scene of a car wrapped around a tree by a teenager who had one too many sips from a hidden flask on prom night.

How big of a problem are DWI fatal accidents in Texas?

Texas does not have a great record when it comes to drunk driving fatalities. As we note elsewhere on our site, the state ranked at the top nationally for deaths caused by drunk drivers in 2009 and 2010. According to Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, Texas also led the nation in 2013.

Drunk driver may not be the only one responsible in DWI crash

Anytime there is an accident, there tends to be one person most responsible for causing the disaster. Sometimes the outcome is merely damage to the vehicles involved. Unfortunately, all too often, the result is physical injury to individuals.
