The Alarming Prevalence Of Drunk And Distracted Driving

DUI-related accidents are more prevalent than you might think. In 2014 alone, more than 1,000 people across Texas were killed in traffic accidents involving alcohol, according to the Texas Department of Transportation. This number amounts to nearly 30 percent of all traffic fatalities.

Drunk driving can extend beyond the roads. It also contributes to serious accidents on Texas lakes and waterways.

Distractions are another leading cause of traffic accidents. Distracted driving can be just as dangerous as driving under the influence of alcohol. Any activity that takes the driver's attention away from the road can be deadly — for example:

  • Texting while driving
  • Using a cellphone or tablet while driving
  • Surfing the Web or using Facebook while driving
  • Eating and drinking while driving

At The Bratton Firm, we can help you get to the bottom of what happened. Call 512-477-8772 or send us an email to arrange a free initial consultation with our lawyer. We offer evening and weekend appointments as needed.
