Drunk Driving Accidents
Drunk driving creates devastating consequences. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 30 people die daily, on average, as a result of accidents involving intoxicated drivers. That multiplies out to an average of 10,950 people yearly – a staggering number.
We have seen the tragic outcomes from the careless decisions to drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The lawyers at Parker McDonald have over 55 combined years of experience of aggressively prosecuting claims on behalf of drunk driving victims.
The Texas Penal Code defines intoxication as:
“not having the normal use of mental or physical faculties by reason of the introduction of alcohol, a controlled substance, a drug, a dangerous drug, a combination of two or more of those substances, or any other substance into the body; OR (b) having an alcohol concentration of .08 or more.”
