Every day, 29 people in the United States die in motor vehicle crashes that involve driving while intoxicated. That’s one death every 50 minutes. The annual cost of these crashes is more than $44 billion. Those are costs that victims will bear if they don’t demand fair compensation from the insurance giants.
Choosing to drive a car after drinking alcohol to the point of intoxication is a grossly negligent decision that can and does have disastrous consequences. In Texas, the victims of a drunk driving collision are entitled to recover compensation for their injuries and damages, as well as exemplary damages designed to punish drunk drivers and send a message to the community at large.
