Fiesta is right around the corner as San Antonians have started collecting medals to pin to their sashes at the more than 100 events happening throughout the city for the 11-day food, booze, and fun-filled affair.

According to the UTSA Center for Community and Business Research, Fiesta San Antonio generated approximately $340.1 million to the local economy and attracted nearly 2,512,489 attendees.

Although Fiesta is meant to celebrate fun times and create lasting memories, more often that we’d like, alcohol involved collisions can be a result of the partying. Alcohol-involved collisions occur frequently, and the Wyatt Law Firm handles cases in which alcohol involved collisions result in individuals suffering from significant injuries.

After an analysis of nearly seven years’ worth of Texas Department of Transportation crash data, the data revealed that alcohol-involved collisions increase by nearly 20% in Bexar County during the Fiesta celebration.

If you or a loved one have been involved in a drunk driving accident, called the San Antonio Personal Injury Lawyers at the Wyatt Law Firm.
