Houston Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys
Drunk driving is a serious problem in Houston, Texas, and contributes to many fatal and injury accidents every day. In 2004, 39 percent of fatal crashes in the United States were alcohol related. The legal limit for blood alcohol concentration in the state of Texas and throughout the United States for drivers 21 years of age or older is .08 g/dL (grams per deciliter) or higher. Additionally, research by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety suggests that the risk of being killed in a solo vehicle crash for drivers with a BAC between .05 and .09 is 11 times higher than drivers without any alcohol in their system. Moreover, medical research shows individuals are often considered “impaired” at .05 g/dL.
