What Texans Should Know About Drunk Driving Accidents
Drunk driving is a dangerous problem. In 2021, 24% of people killed in car crashes throughout Texas were killed because of drunk drivers. Drunk drivers cause life-changing damage to people and families – which is why it’s so important that they’re held accountable. When innocent children are hurt or killed in a drunk driving crash, it’s absolutely devastating to the family.
If you’re a parent seeking justice for your child after a drunk driving crash, there are some very important things you must do:
First, do your best to collect all information related to the incident.
This includes investigator information, medical records, and police reports, which will contain the identity of the drunk driver and their auto insurance policy. This evidence is vital to your civil claim against the drunk driver and their insurance company.
Second, contact a child injury lawyer as soon as possible.
Many lawyers handle drunk driving cases, but cases involving children can be nuanced and usually require unique experience, like understanding the difficulties families face when dealing with a life-altering injury or death involving a child.
