1. Stay home! New Year’s Eve is just an excuse for the overconsumption of alcoholic beverages. And with 2020 being such a terrible year, this might make even more people go out and drink even more tonight. They will be celebrating at nightclubs, bars, and restaurants, then drive home and cause a possible fatal DWI accident in Fort Worth.
Not to be a party-pooper, but please stay home tonight due to Covid-19 precautions, bad weather, and just plain common sense.
Our main goal at Berenson Injury Law is to use the civil justice system to get our clients the best possible compensation for their damages. We also try to change the behavior of negligent drivers so that our highways will be less dangerous.
We just filed a lawsuit against a man whose blood alcohol content was an unbelievable 3.5 times the legal limit — at only about 7:00 p.m.
The Fort Worth Star Telegram wrote an excellent article about this tragic case that claimed the life of a man. Publicizing the inevitability of severe criminal punishments and substantial civil judgments can warn others and hold down the chance of another Fort Worth DWI accident like this one.
We often write about what people should do after they are involved in a driving while intoxicated collision since they are so common and hurt so many people.
Shockingly, 30 Americans lose their lives each day, in a DWI crash. That is one every 50 minutes, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.
We must stop the madness. Every driving while intoxicated collision is preventable. Tonight is the perfect time to start.
