Drunk Driving Accidents Lawyer
Over the last fifty years, drunk driving laws have improved significantly, but the danger is still evident in the annual statistics. Regardless of the stricter drinking and driving laws, many people still choose to be careless and get behind the wheel after drinking too much alcohol. When you or a loved one are injured in a drunk driving accident, you deserve to have legal options to receive compensation for the pain caused by a reckless individual.
Since 1982, drinking and driving deaths have been reduced and progress is being made to keep drunk drivers off the road. But there are still hundreds of thousands of people injured each year in alcohol-related vehicle crashes and way too many deaths. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 10,000 deaths in 2016 were caused by drunk drivers. When a driver drinks and decides to take their life and others into hands by driving, they should be also willing to pay the consequences.
