Drunk Driver Accident Lawyers

“Driving Under the Influence” (DUI) and “Driving While Intoxicated” (DWI), are the terms for alcohol-related driving behavior, responsible for nearly 1/3 of all traffic deaths in the United States. Impaired driving is not only foolish, but selfish, and irresponsible as well. The fact is impaired drivers make poor decisions due to slowed reaction times, judgment, and coordination. Drunk drivers pose serious dangers to drivers, passengers, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians alike. Because of this, impaired drivers cause accidents that would otherwise be preventable.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an automobile accident due to the reckless actions of someone who was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you may be entitled to compensation. Driving while impaired is a serious crime that puts millions of people at risk every year. In addition to injuring other drivers, many people are also killed by the reckless actions of other drivers who were driving while impaired.

Some of these accidents may include:

  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Head-on collisions
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Wrong-way wrecks

According to the CDC, impaired driving results in an economic loss of more than $44 billion each year. In addition, CDC statistics also show that:

  • Every year in the United States 29 people are killed due to crashes involving impaired drivers.
  • Approximately 28% of all traffic deaths in a single year were alcohol-related in the United States.
  • 17 percent of traffic deaths among children under the age of 15 involved drunk drivers.

Thankfully, the statistics show that the number of people driving while impaired has been declining over the years as well as the number of fatalities. But unfortunately, there are people who still decide to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol or ingesting drugs. Due to the bad decisions these people make, other drivers will continue to be at risk of injury from these people.
