Drunk Driving is Measured by Blood Alcohol Content in Texas and Throughout the U.S.

When drivers are stopped at checkpoints or for traffic violations in Texas, and a sobriety test is conducted the driver’s or Blood Alcohol Content/Concentration/Level, will uncover whether he or she is legally intoxicated.

All drivers are deemed legally intoxicated, according to the Texas Department of Transportation, when their blood alcohol content reaches:

  • For non-commercial vehicle drivers: .08 (all drivers under 21 with any detectable amount of alcohol in their system are legally drunk)
  • For commercial vehicle drivers: .04

Unfortunately, no one is immune to the consequences of sharing our roadways with intoxicated drivers including motorcyclists, pedestrians, bicyclists, and other passenger vehicle drivers, who are all at risk when intoxicated drivers get behind the wheel.

If you have been injured in a collision with a person who was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, Call (512) 883-0277 today.

Frequently Asked Questions for Our DWI Motor Vehicle Accident Attorneys in Austin, Texas

Can I Still Pursue a Drunk Driver Who Has Been Arrested on Criminal Charges for the DWI Accident that Caused My Injuries?

Our experienced Glen Larson Law DWI accident and personal injury attorneys in Austin handle cases in civil court, which means your personal injury or wrongful death claim would be separate from the criminal charges being pursued against the drunk driver.

However, in civil cases, the burden of proof is less than what is required to convict an individual in criminal court and only requires a preponderance of the evidence that convinces the court that it is more likely than not that the defendant committed the act of which they are accused.

Can I Pursue a Negligent Driver for the Death of My Loved One in Texas?

If you have lost a loved one in a collision that was caused by a drunk driver, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim against the liable party.

Our Texas wrongful death laws state that when one party causes the death of another through a wrongful act, the eligible family member(s) may pursue the at-fault party for financial recovery through a DWI motor vehicle accident claim.

At Glen Larson Law, our Austin wrongful death attorneys can help certain surviving family members outline the liability requirements and their eligibility to file a claim, so they may pursue the financial recovery they are entitled to for their loved one’s loss.

How Long Do I Have to Pursue a DUI Accident Claim in Texas?

For most Texas DUI accident claims, the injured party or their eligible family members must file a lawsuit within two years from the date the injury or death occurred.

Due diligence requires service of the lawsuit on the responsible parties before the two-year deadline but is also required to preserve the valuable evidence that will help build a convincing case.

If you have been injured in a Texas DWI accident do not delay pursuing medical care or the time it takes to call our experienced DWI collision attorneys, so we can begin pursuing justice and compensation for you or your family.
