Drunk Driving Accidents in McAllen, Texas

Drunk Driving Is a Serious Problem in Texas

The Texas Department of Transportation reports that there were 169 DWI car accidents in McAllen in 2011, and that these accidents resulted in the injury of 154 people and the deaths of 2 more. Statewide, driving while intoxicated is a major public safety issue, as 40 percent of fatal motor vehicle collisions are caused by drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, according to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). In fact, MADD ranks this state as being the fourth-worst in the nation for the rate of fatal drunk driving accidents.

The individual who caused your accident or the death of a loved one by drinking and driving may be facing felony criminal charges with a possible sentence including thousands of dollars in fines and years in state prison. Even if the drunk driver is convicted and sentenced to the full extent of the law, however, there is no guarantee that you will receive the financial compensation you deserve for your injuries of the loss of your family member. This is due to the fact that the insurance company is likely to do whatever it can to minimize the value of your accident claim, or even to deny your claim outright. You have already been through enough, and should not have to fight to obtain a fair settlement from the insurance company.
