DRUNK DRIVING STATISTICS IN EL PASO
Texas Penal Code § 49.04 prohibits driving while intoxicated (DWI), and provides that drivers may not operate a vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or more. However, El Paso consistently ranks as one of the most dangerous counties in Texas for drunk driving accidents.
According to the Texas Department of Transportation, there were 822 accidents in El Paso county in 2021 which involved alcohol. Of these 822 crashes, El Paso had 25 alcohol-related crashes resulting in fatalities. Meanwhile, there were approximately 242 injuries resulting from alcohol-related accidents.
WHY DRUNK DRIVING CAN BE SO DANGEROUS
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol endangers the driver and everyone else using the road. Intoxicated drivers are much more likely to cause an accident, many of which may involve serious injuries or death. Intoxicated drivers may suffer from various impairments to their senses, including:
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs may cause a driver to behave impulsively, such as by running a red light, failing to stop at a railroad crossing, speeding, or passing others without waiting for a safe opportunity. Intoxicated drivers may also suffer from an impaired ability to safely divide their attention between the necessary actions involved in safely operating a vehicle, such as maintaining a safe speed while obeying traffic signs and maintaining a safe distance from other vehicles on the road.
Alcohol or drug use may often severely impair a driver’s senses, especially the driver’s coordination. Intoxicated drivers may suffer impaired muscle control, which in turn may impair their ability to safely steer and brake the vehicle.
Intoxicated drivers may often be unable to see clearly. Alcohol or drug use may also make it difficult for the intoxicated driver to focus or track moving objects on the road around them. This impaired vision may cause the driver to fail to see pedestrians, objects, other vehicles on the road, or other dangerous conditions that could lead to an alcohol-related collision.
Finally, many drivers impaired by alcohol or drug use may also suffer impaired reaction times. Intoxication may cause delays in the driver’s ability to process or act upon sensory information quickly enough to respond safely to changing road conditions. As a result, this impaired reaction time may leave the intoxicated driver unable to adequately respond in time to avoid a crash.

I had the best experience with the Zinda law Group! Shivangi Was the the most professional and caring attorney anyone could ask for! She did everything in a timely matter and answered all the questions I could ever think of. Her paralegal, Danielle was always there for me throughout the entire process.

I was so stressed and over my head with how to handle the situation. It was time to call the pros! As soon as I made the call to Zinda Law Group, Joe and his team I were on it! I no longer received calls from debt collectors, so I knew action was taken immediately. I was informed every step of the way, and every call/email was answered. Had I called sooner, I would have never gone through all that stress. I was treated like a friend, not just a client.Thank you Zinda Law Group! I hired Zinda for a crazy situation involving an 18 wheeler where an object flew off a trailer and blasted through my windshield.I reached out to Zinda and spoke with Michael Cupero, my attorney at Zinda, after the accident once I realized this is affecting my day to day life in a significant way (PTSD from a "Final Destination" type of incident) and Michael was nothing short of fantastic through the entire process.The Zinda team, including Michael and Mary-Catherine Holt and several others, guided me through the entire process from initial settlement offers, filing the lawsuit, depositions, the whole 9.They listened to my concerns, provided clarity and perspective when needed, and not once did I feel that my best interest was not at the forefront of their actions and behavior through my experience as a client.Thank you Michael, Mary-Catherine and Zinda!If you want a team that will treat you with professionalism, respect, and understanding then do yourself a favor and reach out to Zinda! Extremely professional and communicative . They explained the process as we went along and made it very clear weighting pros and cons.

Natasha and Emily explained everything very well and answered any questions I had, communicated well throughout the whole process , and handled the case very professionally, they worked very hard on my case I would definitely highly recommend to friends and family.

Natasha put me at ease with her responsiveness and her ability to accommodate my last minute needs. I had no idea what to expect. It felt like a wave of relief knowing that you're working with a professional that knows what she's doing, and knows how to get things done quickly and efficiently.

The Zinda Law Group was outstanding in helping me with my aunts case. My two Attorneys Neil and Shivangi were very compassionate, kind, eager to help, and really listen carefully and attentively to my case about my aunt. My aunt got hit by a driver while crossing the street and killed. I went after the guys insurance; although, this doesn't bring back my aunt, but allows for this not to happen to other people like this in her case. These attorneys worked very hard and efficiently to bring the justice that they saw fit. When I had a question they explained in terms I understood and not above and beyond me. I appreciate it when people can come down to my level and not intimidate and use trepidation on someone in feeling like they are the fly while they're the spider waiting for the right moment for the fly to walk into its web.Neil and Shivangi always whenever they called asked me how I was at the beginning of our conversations and is there anything I needed at the end of each call. Each call they made to me, was made very professional, personable and felt heart felt as if you were part of the family. At the end of each subject matter they always asked, "Do you have any questions for me before we go to the next thing we need to talk about?" They always wanted to make sure I understood everything before the next item we needed to talk about. These guys really are good and want to please the client anyway they can I thought; when I first started talking to them. I give them above and beyond a 5-Star rating if there was such a thing. I Highly Recommend The Zinda Law Group to Anyone who needs them. This is what I give them if I could!!💯💯💯💯💯 and👍👍👍👍👍 and⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐❗❗❗THANK YOU TO NEIL, SHIVANGI, MARA AND TO EVERYONE AT THE ZINDA LAW GROUP WHO WORKED ON MY CASE!! I APPRECIATE YOU ALL! I would like to recognize a fantastic attorney named Joe Caputo from Zinda Law Group.

They went above and beyond keeping up with my health, bills, insurance companies, all that fun stuff I had no time for. After what felt like such a short amount of time, they were able to win every last penny from the "bad guys" insurance (loved that term). I couldn't happier, and even though I went through something traumatic, it was still the best experience I could have ever asked for. Thank you Michael and everyone that helped with my case, yall are the best!! My attorney was Christina , she and her team gave me the best outcome for my case .I am giving an honesty review at first I was very upset because I kept getting moved around and I never knew who I was talking to because they switch attorneys and kept changing my paralegals.. I was going to go with another law firm but Christina helped me with my case from then on out and she worked around my schedule to talk to me which I appreciate. Also my last law firm took 30 percent, and this one took 33 percent which I wasn’t to happy so just a heads up. Overall I rate this 4 stars cause I’m just happy the case is over with and I get to go back to my life.Update: I just received another call from my attorney and they have worked to negotiate my case with the billing and have put more money in my pocket. All the money that I had spent while working on the case has came back to me. I can fully move on and say that I have gain every penny that was lose during those hard times. I’m so happy and thankful to Zinda law group!!!!!! Zinda Law Group did an excellent job with my case. The staff was super friendly and super effective as far as communicating with me throughout the entire case. I highly recommend Zinda Law Group for your next case and for any of your future cases. 5 Stars across the board thank you so much for everything! Joh Harper, Priyonka Bhikha, and the rest of the team gave my case a quick and satisfactory conclusion. The attorney, Mr. Harper did an absolutely amazing job keeping me on the same page as far as the case goes. Honestly, if anybody is hurt in a car wreck or another personal injury case, I WILL STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU SPEAK TO THEM. I was in a motor vehicle collision about two years ago. From the minute I picked up the phone to speak with a representative to the case finally settling, it was a great experience. I worked with Burgess Williams and his team (Kathy, Ryan, and Linda) throughout the process. They were all very professional and helpful when I needed them the most. Great Firm. I was in motorcycle accident- T-boned at a full stop with my daughter riding on back. Zinda's team was instantly responsive. Christina was very compassionate, organized and scheduled time before every legal event to discuss goals and overview. The process was 2 years but during that time the lawyers and staff (John and Shane were also great) were always available and understanding. The team is focused on doing what is right and by the book. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone who is suffering from a motorcycle accident. Jason Aldridge and his paralegal Mara did an absolutely amazing job on my case. They were very responsive to all emails, calls and even texts. They treated me with dignity and respect from start to finish. I never once felt like my case was at the back of the list or anything. Not only did they explain and walked me through everything, they got me the help I needed and a final outcome over what I had expected. I would highly recommend this law firm, Jason and Mara to anyone seeking legal assistance. Highly Recommended-100% Satisfied!.From the initial phone call I felt confident I chose the right firm. They explained the process and I was always in the loop, even when we were at a stand still. Very grateful I was quickly referred to them by a friend who had a similar case. Both of us are happy with the end result. Thank you! My team of lawyer were very professional and communicated extremely clearly. They kept me updated on their status and did not make me worry at all about my situation. They explained everything to me very well and put things into simple terms for my understanding. I am very satisfied with their performance. I would recommend them to anyone that's been involved in an accident and feels skeptical in engaging an attorney.When one gets into an accident, you're traumatized, confused, angry and helpless.That was me last year, getting all kinds of advice becomes your next norm, to use or not to use an attorney.I was in so much pain from my injuries but at the same time knew I had to act fast.I called Zinda Law Group for consultation, they took my case seriously and treated me with respect, they were very professional and understanding.Elizabeth, kudos to you, you're true to your word, Integrity should be your last name.Jason Aldridge my attorney went to work immediately, he assured me that all be well and I should concentrate on my healing and he will do the rest. Thank your Sir, You did just that.His team, Mara, Zuleyma and Andrew, they all become my support system, so professional and lots of respect in each and everyphone call or email. Thank you guys.I would recommend anyone to use Zinda Law Group. I honestly loved not dealing with the hospital bills while I was recuperating. It gave me peace of mind going through this process and Zinda took care of everything. They found awesome health providers for me and haven't had to worry about anything while they've been taking my case. I've been well informed, communicated with, responded to and understood by Zinda. They have been efficient and effective while working on my case and I'm so glad I choose to go with this law firm. When I was injured in a car accident in March of 2020 the insurance companies were not concerned with my well being. I called Zinda Law group & spoke with Reagan, who went over my concerns & later had Jono contact me. After reviewing my information with Jono my case was immediately put in motion. I worked mainly with Sam Thomas who truly was a blessing to me, he was very supportive & genuinely concerned with my well being, everything wasn't simply about the case it was about me being healed & getting the proper treatment that I needed. Sam was also emotionally supportive when I went through several losses in my family & is a great friend. In all everyone was extremely supportive & all worked for me which was quite a different legal experience for me from Law groups in my past. I was well supported, always informed, treated with respect & made the priority in all decisions. Zinda Law Group made sure I was compensated completely & that I didn't have financial stresses over hospital bills after all was said & done. Sam, Katrina, Mary Catherine, Reagan & Jono I just want to thank you & all of Zinda for the incredible experience & the wonderful caring people that you all are, you are truly Golden in your field. I am so glad I got in touch with Zinda! My car accident occurred just 4 days prior to moving, during the busiest week of the year at my job, and just a week before the quarantine was declared a new reality for all of us. Everyone at Zinda remained persistent, supportive, and most of all advocated for me throughout such a chaotic time. I’ll always be grateful for the care they took to make sure my health and well-being were taken care of. So super grateful to know that a split second mistake someone else made doesn’t have to dictate my life. Thanks! My experience with Zinda Law Group was better than expected. After an accident that totalled my car, I reached out and was paired with a wonderful attorney. She communicated frequently and responded to my calls and texts in a timely manner. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and answered all of my questions. I was kept in the loop during every step of the process. I would call Zinda Law if I ever need this type of support again. I had an excellent experience working with the attorneys at Zinda Law Group! They were knowledgeable, professional and patient. They walked me through every step of the long process of getting treatment after my car wreck and kept me updated with timeframes and next steps. I would absolutely recommend anyone working with them! I was referred here by a family member. Our lawyer jason and his team did and amazing job. They kept me updated in everything made sure I understood what was going on. My son was hit by a van in the hospital jason came right over. He's awesome so much down to earth straight forward. I would recommend him and his firm to everyone and I have thank you zinda but most of all thank you Jason for being there for us for being a friend Zinda Law Group was recommended to me from another satisfied client and I certainly received excellent service. The attorneys and staff are very proactive with communication and I knew every step of the way what was happening on my case. I never felt pressured with decision making and they went above & beyond to answer questions with satifactory explanations. This is a very professional group of attorneys & support staff. In addition, they were willing to meet me at a location more convenient for me. I appreciated their concern for my time. Could not speak highly enough of the firm. I was involved in my first accident and thankfully had Zinda Law Group supporting me through the scary time. Jono took care of me every step of the way. He made me feel like I was a priority through the entire process. A big thank you to Jono and the rest of the Zinda crew!
What To Do After An Accident With A Potential Drunk Driver
All drivers should be aware of the steps to take following an accident that involves an alcohol-impaired driver. Contacting law enforcement authorities as soon as possible after the accident is crucial, even if the accident does not appear to be serious.
It is important for law enforcement officers to respond quickly and preserve evidence at the scene—such as the driver’s BAC. Having law enforcement officers on the scene as soon as possible will also allow potential witnesses to better recall the details of the accident while it is still fresh in their minds.
Every potential witness should be encouraged to remain on the scene until law enforcement arrives. The witnesses may have noticed that the other driver was driving erratically before the crash, or the witnesses may be able to attest to the drunken driver’s behavior immediately following the crash.
If there were witnesses to the accident, you should try to get their names and contact information. If any of the witnesses took photographs or video recordings of the accident, ask them for copies. If you yourself have a camera at the scene of the accident, take some photographs of the scene.
In addition to calling the police, all the steps that you would take following a typical car accident, also apply here. Those include:
- Getting the driver’s information
- Taking photos
- Looking for additional evidence including names and contact information of witnesses, accident reports, etc.
- Saving your medical records or receipts
- Consult a drunk driving accident lawyer
HOW TO PROVE LIABILITY IN DRUNK DRIVING ACCIDENT CASES
Generally, a car wreck victim must prove four general elements of negligence when pursuing a drunk driving lawsuit in El Paso:
- The intoxicated driver owed a duty of care to the victim
- The intoxicated driver breached this duty of care
- The victim suffered injuries or damages in the accident
- The victim’s injuries or damages were caused by the intoxicated driver’s breach
Generally, proving the other driver owed a duty of care to you is fairly straight-forward. Every driver generally owes a duty of care to all others on the roadway to drive reasonably under the circumstances and avoid any accidents. Further, proving a driver breached this duty of care may also be simpler than in other car accident cases once a victim can prove the other driver was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Your drunk driving injury lawyer in El Paso may prove the other driver’s intoxication by obtaining results of any Breathalyzer tests, field sobriety tests, or blood tests administered by law enforcement after the accident. Your attorney may also present witness testimony of the driver’s erratic behavior shortly before the crash as well as any evidence the driver consumed any drinks before getting behind the wheel.
Next, you will have to demonstrate the extent of your injuries or damages suffered in the accident. This evidence may include any diagnoses of your injuries as well as the medical bills for any necessary treatment as well as damages from your damaged vehicle, any lost wages, or non-economic damages such as pain and suffering. Finally, you will have to prove your injuries and damages were caused by the other driver’s negligent behavior. In the case of drunk driving accidents, your lawyer may provide evidence of the other driver’s intoxication and demonstrate this intoxication led to the accident in which you were injured.
HOW DRUNK DRIVING ACCIDENTS ARE DIFFERENT THAN A NORMAL CAR WRECK
If you have been injured in a drunk driving accident in El Paso, filing a lawsuit may include some differences from a car accident claim that does not involve an intoxicated driver. While drunk driving accidents also often involve serious injuries as well as an attempt to assign fault for the accident and negotiating with insurers to reach settlements, drunk driving accidents often include two key differences. First, if the other driver was intoxicated at the time of the accident, this intoxication may make it easier for your attorney to prove the intoxicated driver breached their duty of care by driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Because Texas, like every other state, prohibits driving while intoxicated, any person who gets behind the wheel while under the influence is likely to be held at least partially liable for any injuries or damages you may have suffered in the accident. Thus, if your accident lawyer establishes that the other driver was intoxicated, the first two elements of a drunk driving accident claim of duty and breach may be automatically met as proof of the DWI constitutes “negligence per se” under Texas law.
Further, because of the degree of negligence involved in drunk driving, punitive damages may be available in some cases. Punitive damages may be awarded to punish the at-fault driver while discouraging others from engaging in the same dangerous behavior. Courts generally only award punitive damages if the at-fault driver acted with gross negligence or intentionally caused the accident. Under Texas law, driving while intoxicated typically constitutes gross negligence, which may allow you to pursue punitive damages to discourage other drivers from getting behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
How Long Will My Case Take?
The length of time that any personal injury case takes is going to depend on the facts of the case. Every client experiences something different so until we know more, it’s very hard to give a definitive answer. Call us today for a free consult and with some more information about your case, we can discuss a timeline.
What Is My Case Worth?
Just like in the question above, each case is different so it’s important that you speak to an attorney to properly estimate the value of your case. Don’t trust anyone who tells you what your case is worth without having done an investigation first.

WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE A LAWYER FOR A CASE INVOLVING A DRUNK DRIVER
Hiring an experienced attorney may often be the difference in successfully pursuing a drunk driving accident lawsuit in El Paso. Drunk driving accidents can often lead to severe injuries or even death, especially in the case of head-on collisions. Many victims may face serious physical or emotional trauma after the accident. Your attorney may handle your case while you recover from the effects of the accident. An El Paso personal injury lawyer may present your available options as well as create a plan moving forward to seek compensation for your injuries and damages. As you recover, your lawyer may investigate the accident and gather any evidence necessary to support your claim, such as police reports establishing the intoxication of the other driver. Your lawyer may handle every step of your claim from filing the personal injury lawsuit, to investigating the accident, to negotiating with the insurer on your behalf, to taking your case to trial if necessary.
HOW AN EL PASO DRUNK DRIVING LAWYER CAN HELP YOU NEGOTIATE WITH INSURANCE COMPANIES
Often, insurance companies may attempt to take advantage of victims after an accident. You should never speak to an insurance company after the accident without the assistance of a lawyer. Insurance companies work to pay as little as possible after accidents, and the insurance company may attempt to trick you into making statements that could weaken your claim. The insurer may call you soon after the accident promising to help you or speed along a potential settlement, while often really looking to trick you into admitting some responsibility for the accident. The insurer may then attempt to use these statements to reduce or eliminate any compensation you may be entitled to after the accident.
An experienced drunk driving accident lawyer in El Paso may communicate with the insurer on your behalf to protect your interests and begin the process of negotiating a potential settlement with the insurer. Your lawyer may negotiate with the drunk driver’s insurer by making an initial offer to settle your claim. Your attorney may present evidence proving the extent of your injuries as well as proving the drunk driver’s liability for the accident and your injuries. The insurance company may use its teams of lawyers and adjusters to dispute your claim or the extent of your injuries. During these negotiations, a lawyer may work to obtain a satisfactory drunk driving settlement for your injuries.
