Drunk Driving Accidents in Corpus Christi
Our Attorneys Hold Drunk Drivers Accountable
It is an unfortunate truth that we cannot fully protect ourselves and our loved ones from the negligent or wrongful conduct of others. Even when we are responsible and use a designated driver or rideshare service, others may drive drunk. Drunk driving is responsible for approximately one-third of traffic fatalities in the U.S. each year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
If you or someone you love has been injured in an accident caused by a drunk or drugged driver, The Edwards Law Firm is here to help. We know you are facing an uncertain future, one that includes exorbitant medical expenses and financial difficulties caused by missed work. Our Corpus Christi drunk driving accident attorneys are here to help you pursue a fair settlement or award to cover your losses.
Why Does Drunk Driving Cause Accidents?
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is illegal in Texas and across the country. Drivers may face heavy fines, license suspension, and even imprisonment if they are caught driving drunk, and yet they continue to get behind the wheel while impaired. Drunk driving is illegal because it is dangerous. It significantly increases one’s chances of causing or being involved in an accident.
Alcohol and drugs impair:
- Reaction time
- Mental attention
- Muscle control
With any of the above affected by alcohol and/or drugs, a driver is more likely to violate a traffic law, follow too closely, fail to notice an object in the road, or perform any of a number of acts that may cause a collision.

You may be entitled to significant financial compensation if a drunk driver caused you harm. Cases of this kind can be difficult to manage, however, particularly if the insurance adjuster tries to lower your settlement or deny the other driver’s liability. A Corpus Christi drunk driving accident lawyer can handle your insurance claim for you, pursuing the fair and complete compensation to which you are rightfully entitled.
