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. You need a drunk driving accident attorney in Houston, TX to look into other options when this happens.
