Drunk Driving Accidents

According to Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD), Texas leads the nation in drunk driving accidents. In 2011, 1,296 people died as a result of drunk driving in the state – a number that represents 38 percent of all traffic deaths. This is an increase of seven percent from 2010. In addition, there were 25,671 alcohol related crashes and 16,882 alcohol related injuries in 2011. However, Carse Law firm knows that these statistics do not come close to describing the true devastation of a drunk driving accident.

Carse Law firm has represented people who have suffered significant injury caused by a drunk driver. Injuries have been as severe as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, shattered pelvis and broken backs. We have also helped the forgotten victims, those who have lost a family member after someone made the poor decision to drink and drive. Carse Law firm does not stop there either. We also seek justice from the establishment that may have over served the driver by selling them too much alcohol. In many cases, a bar, restaurant or liquor store can be held liable under Texas Dram Shop laws.

Under the Texas Dram Shop Act, if a provider sells or serves alcohol to someone who is obviously intoxicated and that individual causes damages to another, the establishment can be held legally responsible. This also includes hosts of private parties where alcohol is served to a guest who is obviously intoxicated and who represents a clear and present danger to themselves or others. Therefore, if someone who left a bar, restaurant or party was obviously intoxicated and causes a drunk driving accident, those serving the drunk driver can face liability as well. We also sue parents who serve minors!

Drunk driving accidents do not just happen in personal vehicles. Taxi drivers, bus drivers, even semi-truck drivers have caused accidents after getting behind the wheel while intoxicated or impaired by drug use. When a commercial vehicle is involved in an impaired driving accident, you need a qualified experienced attorney on your side to fight for your rights as the injured party.

Our investigators dig deep into the facts and uncover every shred of evidence possible to get you what you deserve after being injured or suffering the loss of a loved one at the hands of a drunk driver.
