Shreveport Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer

Information & Guidance for Victims of Drunk Driving

Almost half of all fatalities in drunk driving accidents in our state are alcohol related. Drunk drivers have a slower reaction time and when it comes to driving a vehicle weighing, at the minimum, 1-2 tons, a few seconds can make a huge difference. In addition to slow reaction time, impaired judgment and focus can result in an inability to read and respond to the signs on the road.

Some of the things that can go wrong and cause an accident include:

  • Running stop signs
  • Running red lights
  • Speeding
  • Reckless lane changing
