Drunk Driving Accidents
We are Galveston-Based Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys
When the At-Fault Driver Was Drunk…
Some people actually believe they are better drivers after they have had a few drinks. Unfortunately, they pose a serious danger to the people in their own cars as well as people in other cars, pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcyclists. Judges and juries can award more money in those cases to send a message to the drunk driver and to the community.

A Drunk Driving Car Accident Causes Serious and Often Fatal Injuries
Alcohol affects judgment and reflexes. The drunk driver is an impaired driver. The drunk driver cannot take actions to prevent an accident or lessen the seriousness of an accident. A drunk driving accident can be the result of a driver who has lost depth perception and does not appreciate speed and distance because of alcohol use. Drunk drivers often have erratic speeding patterns — too fast, then too slow.
Drunk drivers fail to adjust to traffic patterns. They may forget to turn on their lights or signal their turns, yet they may be filled with confidence. Unfortunately, that confidence can cause drunk driving accidents and endanger their own lives and the lives of family members and strangers.
DWI is when a driver is driving while intoxicated on alcohol. A DUI (driving under the influence) is charged when the driver is on illegal drugs or prescription pain pills. Driving is a privilege, and the courts have made that clear many times. No one has the right to drive drunk and put others at risk.
Holding Distracted Drivers Accountable
Insurance companies aggressively defend against car accident injury claims. If you were injured by a careless driver, you will likely be in an uphill battle to obtain the compensation you need to recover from your losses. This is why it is so important to have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side.
Our lawyers have the experience, skill and resources to fully investigate car accidents and to determine causation and liability. We can help you find the facts and uncover evidence of driver negligence, including:
- Distracted driving, including texting while driving
- Drunk driving
- Reckless driving
- Lane violations
- Red light violations
- Road rage
Insurance companies have teams of attorneys and investigators who are employed to help limit and deny compensation for injury victims. Our law firm is on the side of individuals injured in car accidents. We have successfully handled hundreds of car accident injury claims and recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients.
