What can you expect after a DUI accident?

Not all drivers in Texas are as mindful as they should be. Some drive too fast or ignore road signs, others allow themselves to be distracted by mobile phones or their passengers and others fail to signal appropriately or give adequate space to other drivers. One particularly common problem, however, is drunk driving. Throughout the state and, indeed, the entirety of the U.S. countless road users decide to operate their vehicles while intoxicated.

Not only does this put them at risk, it also endangers everyone else sharing the road with them. All too often this results in a devastating accident and serious injuries for all involved. No matter how safely you drive, such an incident can easily catch you off guard, with life-changing consequences.

If this happens, it is important to alert authorities immediately. However, you should be aware that it is possible that you will be investigated for drunk driving as well as the individual responsible. However, as this article on DUI accidents explains, you will only be detained if officers deem that it is most likely that you are being influenced by alcohol or drugs. Furthermore, this thorough collection of evidence should strengthen your case in the long run.

It can be difficult to come to terms with an accident, particularly if you are faced with expensive repair and medical bills, not to mention the time it takes to recover from any injuries. As such, an attorney could be beneficial, providing advice and support at this difficult time and assisting you if you decide to file a claim against those responsible.
