Drunk Driving Accidents
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration FARS data, in 2012, 10,322 people died in drunk driving crashes – that’s one every 51 minutes. Drinking and driving has become an acceptable epidemic that is killing so many innocent victims in West Texas and Eastern New Mexico. The experienced trial lawyers at Liggett Law Group are determined to put a stop to the epidemic and seek justice for the victims of drunk driving accidents.
The proximity of Lubbock to Texas Tech University or Eastern New Mexico State University means the dangers of an individual being involved in a drunk driving accident are much higher in this area as the rate of drunk driving is highest among 21 – 25 year olds.
Drunk Driving Personal Injury Cases are Complex
Additional considerations apply to the litigation of a drunk driving personal injury case: the civil and criminal punishments for the drunk driver, and whether the alcohol server or provider can be found responsible for the accident in any way.
Governmental entities will handle and pursue criminal penalties available to punish the drunk driver. In addition to potential criminal consequences, Texas civil law allows a victim to sue a drunk driver for punitive or exemplary damages.
