Drunk Drivers Make Every Ride More Dangerous In San Antonio
For many reasons, drunk driving accidents have been on the rise across the San Antonio area. This puts people on the road at significant personal risk, and if you’ve been in an accident, you might feel like you don’t have any next steps. But that is simply not the case.
At Raúl B. Rodriguez Law, P.C., our personal injury lawyers are tough, dedicated and knowledgeable about the pursuit of injury claims in and across Texas. Drunk drivers are breaking the law, but just because they face criminal prosecution doesn’t mean they can’t also face a lawsuit. We hold people accountable for the injuries they cause.
The Risk Of A Drunk Driving Crash
San Antonio is a thriving area. There are many tourist attractions that draw people from across the country. There are significant holiday periods, such as Fiesta in March and April. And the simple fact of day-to-day life in San Antonio often leads some to choose to drive drunk. These accidents can happen at any time to anyone, including:
- Bicyclists in designated bike lanes
- Pedestrians crossing the street or on sidewalks
- Commuters on the way to work
More often than not, a drunk driver crash causes more significant injuries because the driver is taking more risks, such as driving faster or ignoring safety rules on the road.
Drunk Drivers Are Responsible For The Injuries They Cause
Comparative fault law in Texas means that your damages are reduced by whatever amount of fault you are for the accident. If you’re more than 50% at fault, you will not recover any compensation. In an accident with a drunk driver – while not absolute – it is far more likely that the fault calculation will go in your favor.
