Drunk Driving Accident

Tragically, thousands of victims die or are injured in a drunk driving accident in the U.S. each year. Drunk driving accidents account for

  • 3,500 - 4,000 passenger deaths each year;
  • 2,500 - 3,000 non-occupant deaths each year;
  • 97,000 - 98,000 passenger injuries each year; and
  • 12,000 - 17,000 non-occupant injuries each year.

Every life lost to a drunk driver leaves behind a shattered family. The grief and loss experienced may last for years as family members struggle to make sense of an accident that never should have happened.

Of those who survive an accident with a drunk driver, many suffer severe and permanent injuries. These injuries include the loss of a limb, paralysis, quadraplegia, and brain injuries. The impact encompasses everything from the need for life-long medical care to the inability to work. This affects not only the injured individual, but his or her family as well.

Drunk drivers and those who served them alcohol may be liable for the devastating effects of accidents caused by drunk drivers. If you or someone you care about have been injured by a drunk driver, you should immediately contact a competent attorney.
