Drunk drivers cause a significant amount of damage. In 2015, more than 10,000 people died in the United States alone as the result of alcohol-impaired crashes. That year, there was an alcohol-impaired traffic fatality every 51 minutes.
As personal injury attorneys, we see many auto accidents caused by drunk or drugged drivers, who, intentionally or not, harmed others through their poor decision-making skills. While there’s nothing wrong with having fun, people should be able to take precautions when going out and imbibing alcohol. When going to a party, stay there for the night and drive home the next morning. Alternatively, you and some friends could split the cost of cab fare or a ride-sharing service.
However, when people don’t take these precautions, others can suffer for it. Serious car accidents can lead to debilitating injuries, such as traumatic brain injury and severe spinal damage. Some accidents can even cause wrongful death. When people come to us after experiencing trauma at the hands of someone else’s negligence, we do our best to offer compassionate and experienced legal advocacy to help get them whatever compensation we can.
It’s also why we decided to create our own assessment, which you can find here. Our firm is now able to offer people a quiz that will tell you whether or not you may be at risk for a drunk driving accident. It was created for us by 1 Page Solutions and offers people 6 questions with multiple answers possible. If you take it and find your habits may be a little on the dangerous side, consider altering those habits to make yourself and others a little safer. You could be saving yourself time, money, and stress in the future.
