Is drunk driving intentional misconduct?

Being involved in an accident on the roads is always a distressing experience. However, when you discover that the cause of the accident was that someone was driving drunk, you may also feel angry and anxious to seek justice. It is a frustrating and terrifying thought that there are still so many drivers who will get behind the wheel when they are under the influence of alcohol. Sadly, DUI accidents happen in Texas all the time, and the only recourse left to the victims is to pursue compensation and hope for a swift and full recovery.

If you have been involved in an accident with a drunk driver, it is important to report it as soon as possible. The only thing you should consider doing first is summoning medical aid if you or anyone else has been injured. Once you have contacted the police, it is also worth recording as many details as possible about your accident as this may help you if you decide to make a claim.

As this article on personal injury explains, driving drunk is reckless and is considered to be a form of intentional misconduct. While this does little to diminish the harm their actions have caused you, it may at least mean that it is easier to determine fault in the incident. This in turn could help you secure the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

It may feel like a lot to take in and too much to handle when you are injured and shaken. However, there is help available so you need not navigate the legal process alone. An attorney can advise you on how to proceed and may be able to support you as you seek justice for your injuries and pursue fair remuneration for the harm you have suffered.
