McAllen Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer
Aggressive Representation for DWI Victims
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that in 2010, more than 10,000 people died in alcohol-related car accidents. This equates to 1 drunk driving death every 51 minutes. These alarming statistics have prompted a nationwide crackdown on drunk and impaired drivers. In Texas, the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level for drivers over the age of 21 is 0.08%. As truck accidents pose more severe risks, truck drivers are held to tighter standards, including a BAC level of only 0.04%. If you have been injured in an accident caused by a driver who was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, Stern Law Group is here to support you throughout your personal injury claim process and to aggressively fight on your behalf.
Holding the Impaired Driver Liable
Texas establishes, enforces and harshly prosecutes a number of laws concerning impaired drivers. Although the legal limit for a driving while intoxicated (DWI) charge is 0.08%, drivers can still be held liable and can still be arrested for a lower BAC level if it is determined that they were too impaired to operate a motor vehicle. In addition, any amount of drugs or controlled substance in a driver's system at the time of an accident can subject them to criminal penalties and liability for compensating victims. By closely analyzing the intricacies and details of your accident and the other driver's level of impairment, our experienced legal team can clearly establish liability and ensure that you are fully and fairly compensated for the damages you incurred.
