Alcohol-Impaired Crash Statistics
There are over 15,000 Drunk driving accidents in the State of Texas every year. According to the NHTSA 2018 statistics, 10,511 people lost their lives in auto collisions involving drunk drivers, 3642 of those people were in Texas. In fact, 40% of all traffic fatalities were the result of an alcohol-impaired driver which is 11% higher than the national average. Drunk driving is a serious problem in Texas.
Lack of Insurance Coverage in Drunk Driving Accidents
Unfortunately in many cases, the actual damages and injuries that a victim of a drunk driver sustains are compounded by the fact that the irresponsibility and negligence of a person who drives while intoxicated tends to extend to other areas of that individual’s life. Often a person who will get behind the wheel of a car, endangering the lives of people like you and your children, will not have enough (or any) automobile insurance.
