Drunk driving accidents in Texas are far too common. We’re listed in the top 10 states for drunk driving-related car accidents, injuries, and fatalities. Hundreds of people die every year and thousands are injured because of these tragic incidents.
As the severity of injuries ranges in drunk driving accidents, some victims may experience only minor injuries while others may be quite serious. The following are common injuries suffered by individuals involved in serious DUI-related collisions:
- Lacerations and burns
- Soft tissue injuries (whiplash)
- Broken bones
- Internal organ damage
- Spinal cord injury
- Concussions/traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Emotional distress
- Mental anguish
- Wrongful death
Medical expenses can quickly accumulate and sometimes long-term care is necessary. Filing a personal injury claim against those who harmed you can help you and your family to deal with any financial burdens you may be dealing with.
Sadly, fatalities frequently occur in drunk driving accidents, whether it is the drunk driver themselves or an innocent victim. Know that if a loved one passes as the result of a drunk driving accident, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim.
