Texans are usually proud of their state. Unfortunately, Houston has been ranked #1 in drunk driving accidents. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) found that in 2011, there were 2,751 fatal drunk driving auto accidents in our great state. Almost 58,000 other drunk driving accidents resulted in severe injury to their victims. 40% of all automobile deaths are a result of intoxicated drives. These statistics are appalling and create an obvious need for stronger ramifications for drunk drivers.

The law firm of Shaw Cowart takes auto accidents caused by drunk driving seriously. Our attorneys want to seek the damages you are owed if you have been injured by this senseless act. Our firm desires to do our part to remove this negative ranking from our state and the city of Houston. If more drunk drivers are held accountable for their negligent actions, maybe other intoxicated individuals will consider different options of transportation.
