Bizarre Double Accident Caused By Drunken Drivers Kills 31-year-old Mother
Jan 9, 2013
Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) January 8 , 2013 – Two drunken drivers caused the death of a young mother.
“You don’t see this happen often, two drunken drivers, almost behind one another on the road, both causing accidents within minutes. In this story, a 31-year-old mother, was first hit by a drunk driver. She was a passenger in a vehicle on the Houston freeway. It appeared that no one was hurt, so she climbed out of the car to check on the people in the other vehicle. She was hit and killed instantly by a second drunk driver,” explained Austin personal injury attorney Bobby Lee, of Lee, Gober and Reyna in Austin, Texas.
As stories go, this one is horrific for the unnecessary loss of life because two people chose to drink and drive. It is never okay to get behind the wheel of a vehicle and attempt to drive, while three sheets to the wind. Despite the stiff penalties in Texas, some people still thumb their nose at the laws relating to drinking and driving. Perhaps they think the law does not apply to them or that they can handle anything, whether they have been drinking or not. “Typically, those are the very people who end up dead or killing someone. When does the carnage stop?” asked Lee.
Texas has drunk driving campaigns, seriously stiff criminal penalties, which they recently increased, and yet, people still drink, climb into a vehicle and hit the road. All over Texas, and in other states, tales abound of how a drunk driver killed someone. The families of those left behind are left with only memories of their loved ones, and the only way to find justice is to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
“If you have lost someone in an accident involving a negligent drunk driver, I can make sure that you recover medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and funds to support any children that need care. Call me. I am here to help you and stand by your side as we seek justice for your loss,” added Lee.
