We hope that, in some way, this site can help the larger community appreciate the tragic – and completely avoidable – outcomes of bad decisions about driving while impaired.
HOUSTON, TX, April 06, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Cold statistics fail to capture the true devastation of drunk driving fatalities. In an effort to shine the spotlight on the human loss caused by impaired driving, the Houston firm of Michael P. Fleming & Associates, P.C., has created a new site that tells the stories of real people killed in impaired driving crashes in Texas.
Entitled "Drunk Driving: A Humanistic Profile of Lost Lives in TX," the interactive site shows the real individuals behind the drunk driving statistics. While names and photos have been changed out of respect for the surviving families, the stories of 13 drunk driving victims are absolutely real and completely devastating.
"Our goal with this effort is to help Texans better comprehend the human loss that drunk driving far too often causes," Houston personal injury attorney Michael P. Fleming said. "We hope that comprehending these compelling stories will spur the public to take measures to address the pressing issue of drunk driving in the community. We also hope it will make individuals think twice about putting themselves and others at risk by getting behind the wheel after drinking."
This site notes that more than 1-in-4 Texas highway deaths involved alcohol impairment in a single recent year. The total death toll was 987 that year.
Although figures like that can be alarming, they may remain a bit too abstract to make a real impact. The firm hopes to change that by humanizing the victims behind the numbers.
"At our personal injury law firm in Houston, every day in our practice we see the human pain and loss caused by careless driving," Fleming said. "We hope that, in some way, this site can help the larger community appreciate the tragic – and completely avoidable – outcomes of bad decisions about driving while impaired."
