Did Your Accident Involve Alcohol or Drug Abuse?
Drug and alcohol abuse by truck drivers has been a known cause of accidents in the past decade. Even though the number of illegal alcohol and drug use has declined in recent years, accidents are still being caused by such abuse.
Studies show operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol can increase the chance of a crash 2- to 6-fold. Our professional Texas truck accident lawyers can help you and your family fight for fair compensation in your accident case.
