Truck Drivers Under The Influence Of Drugs Or Alcohol

Representing Victims Of Trucking Accidents In Texas

The dangers imposed by intoxicated motorists have long been a concern in Texas. Intoxicated driving is especially dangerous in busy metro areas such as Austin.

Truck accidents often result in serious injuries even when the truck driver is sober. When a truck driver is driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the results can be even more catastrophic.

Truck drivers are held to very high safety standards. Because of the size of these vehicles and the potential for causing major damage when involved in an accident, lower blood alcohol content (BAC) limits apply to truck drivers than to those drivers operating passenger vehicles.

Victims of truck accidents involving an intoxicated truck driver should gather as much information as possible about the cause of the accident. This involves obtaining police reports, taking photos of the accident scene, talking to eyewitnesses and taking other steps. If you or someone close to you has been injured by a truck driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol, contact the law firm of Lorenz & Lorenz, L.L.P., to learn how we can help.
