How Does Alcohol Affect the Human Body?

Alcohol is the primary cause of intoxicated driving; however, you can get arrested for driving while under the influence of other drugs as well. It is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol concentration level of .08% or higher in Texas.

Alcohol affects the human body in many ways depending on the amount of consumption, including:

BAC of .02% to .05%

You begin to feel relaxed and less inhibited. Your physical gestures may be exaggerated, and you may have difficulty focusing on objects. You will be slower to react while driving and may overcorrect mistakes.

BAC of .08%

Your coordination will be affected, including balance. Speech may be slurred, and your judgment will suffer. Your vision may be blurred, and it may become difficult to avoid obstacles. Driving at this level of intoxication is illegal and dangerous. It often results in crashes.

BAC of .10% and Higher

You will lack muscle control and stumble. Your physical, mental, and emotional functions will be impacted. It will be hard for you to walk, let alone drive.

Common Types of Drunk Driving Crashes

Because alcohol tends to impair coordination and clear thinking, some common types of accidents occur when a driver is drunk, including:

  • Erratic lane changes
  • Weaving through traffic
  • Swerving across the middle line
  • Traveling the wrong way on the roadway
  • Entering highway exit ramps incorrectly
  • Driving at high speeds

What Are My Rights After a Drunk Driving Accident?

You have a right to recover compensation for all your losses. You also have a right to see the drunk driver be held criminally accountable through the Texas justice system. The Law Giant, Personal Injury & Accident Lawyers can help you make sure both things occur.

We Will Gather Evidence for Your Case

We will work with the police to gather evidence and support your statement of what happened during the accident. We won’t force you to testify at trial unless you want to. Often, your statement to the investigator will be enough to hold them accountable.

We Will Negotiate With Insurance Companies

We will file a claim with the drunk driver’s insurance company and demand that they pay for your losses. We will fight to make sure they pay what you deserve.

How Much is My Accident Worth?

The value of your DUI accident insurance claim depends on several things, including the severity of your injuries, property damage, insurance policy limits, and more. We can help you receive fair compensation to cover the following expenses:

  • Past and future medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Loss of consortium
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
