Man Driving A Car

Houston Car Accident Attorneys Encourage Injury Victims to Seek Justice

A South Houston drunk driving car crash has made headlines, and 19-year-old E. Hernandez has been charged with intoxicated manslaughter. Hernandez is charged with killing the 23-year-old driver in a head-on collision and injuring the car’s other occupants, including a one-year-old boy and the driver’s mother.

According to reports, the driver crossed three lanes of traffic in his pickup truck before slamming into her SUV at high speed. Upon arrest, Hernandez was said to be slurring his words, with bloodshot eyes, and a lack of balance. Law enforcement say Hernandez was able to be served alcoholic beverages by using a fake ID. Hernandez racked up at least a $100 tab purchasing alcoholic beverages before the crash, records indicate, and law enforcement has since learned that Hernandez was served at least 5 alcoholic beverages, but likely more. The establishment where he was drinking is under investigation as well for their part in overserving and underage drinker.

Car Accident Lawyers with Trial Experience Help Victims Secure Compensation

Drunk driving car crashes happen much too often, leaving their victims in a world of pain, confusion, and chaos. What victims of drunk driving accidents may not know is that they are entitled to compensation by the driver who caused their injuries. In the case of fatal drunk driving crashes, a wrongful death civil suit may be filed by the victim’s next-of-kin, so they can be financially compensated for their tragic loss and pay off any medical bills, and burial or funeral expenses.
