What Types of Austin DUI Accidents Can Occur?

When a driver is drunk, their ability to operate a car safely is impaired. Additionally, alcohol and controlled substances impair a driver’s reaction times, decision-making skills, coordination, focus, and visual perception, among other issues.

This is the reason DUI accidents typically involve high speeds or very deadly forms of accidents, such as:

  • Head-on collisions
  • T-bone accidents
  • Sideswipe collisions
  • Rear-end accidents
  • Highway accidents involving high speeds
  • Collisions involving bikers and pedestrians

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that around 32 persons per day are killed in drunk driving accidents in the United States. These incidents are entirely avoidable.

What Are Common Injuries Suffered in DUI Crashes?

An intoxicated driver’s reaction time is slower than that of a sober driver since they aren’t paying full attention.

Consequently, they are more likely to be involved in a serious car accident, resulting in injuries such as:

  • Abrasions and lacerations
  • Cracked or broken bones
  • Burns
  • Head and neck trauma
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Scarring and deformity
  • Internal hemorrhage and organ damage
  • Paralysis
  • Whiplash

Our Austin drunk driving accident lawyers at FVF Law are prepared to provide effective, high-quality legal counsel. We will work diligently to get you the financial relief you need so you can recover from your injuries in peace.

What Types of Damages Are Recoverable After a DUI-Related Accident in Texas?

In DUI accident cases, Texas accident victims can seek damages in three categories: economic, non-economic, and punitive.

Economic damages are financial losses related to the accident and can include:

  • Medical expenses – current and future
  • Loss of current and future income
  • In-home care
  • Rehabilitation

Non-economic damages are personal and generally cannot be quantified in monetary terms because there is no price tag on the impact they have on your life. These could include:

  • Permanent disability
  • Emotional distress
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of companionship/consortium
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Pain and suffering

When substance abuse is involved, you may be eligible to claim punitive damages in addition to compensatory damages. Punitive damages are sometimes granted for egregious conduct. They are intended to punish the intoxicated driver for DUI and to deter others from committing the same act.
