Fiery crashes can cause the most fatal of injuries. According to the American Burn Association, burn victims make up over 700,000 trips to the hospital emergency rooms each year and of those visits over 45,000 of those individuals require hospitalization. Common causes of burn injuries are: faulty wiring or plumbing, auto accidents, defective automobiles, unsafe workplaces, poorly maintained smoke alarms or residences lacking the devices, and defective products. 

According to Texas Law, Intoxication Manslaughter involves an intoxicated driver that causes the death of someone else while they are behind the wheel. Because two people were killed, and the driver is seen to be negligent while behind the wheel, it’s important to seek legal assistance who handles cases of negligence and Intoxication Manslaughter.
