It is a common misconception that New Year's Eve is the day with the highest amount of drunk drivers on the road. In fact, it is Thanksgiving. The holiday season in general sees a drastic increase in DUI arrests and accidents, but Thanksgiving takes first place in this unfortunate event. Drivers are advised to be extra cautious throughout the day, as many individuals partake in family meals and drinks in the early afternoon and then drive home. 

Drunk driving accidents kill thousands each year. In Texas, as in all states, the legal blood alcohol content limit is .08% if the person is driving. Those who are under 21 and commercial drivers are held to lower BAC levels.

If you or someone you love is injured in an auto accident caused by a drunk driver, it is necessary that you protect your rights and hire a personal injury lawyer. You may be due compensation for medical bills, property damage to your vehicle, lost wages and more.

Contact a Dallas Personal Injury Attorney at Heselmeyer, Zinda Law Group to learn more about your rights as a victim.
