Drunk Driving Accidents Archives

Take action after a preventable drunk driving crash

As we discussed in a previous blog post, the number of drunk driving fatalities is on a downward slide. Even though this is a good thing, it doesn't mean that the effects of any drunk driving accident are lesser than in the past. We know that all drunk driving accidents, whether they involve a fatality or not, have the possibility of causing major life changes for the victims.

Drunk driving fatalities are on a downward slide

Drunk driving is a serious issue that has a big impact on society. For the family members who are left to mourn the loss of a loved one at the hands of a drunk driver, there is little comfort in the fact that drunk driving fatalities are on a downward trend since statistics were first kept in 1982.

Pedestrians struck by drunk drivers face a difficult recovery

Drunk driving is a huge problem that affects every person who uses the public roadways. Whether you are in a vehicle or are a pedestrian, you are facing a dangerous scenario if a drunk driver is in the vicinity. We know that no one leaves home hoping that they will be struck by a drunk driver. When a drunk driver does strike a pedestrian, the effects can be devastating.

Drunk driving is a huge issue in this country

Young people who consume alcohol often think that they have everything under control. Unfortunately, this isn't usually the case. Drunk drivers of all ages can cause fatal accidents. In fact, someone is killed in a drunk driving accident in this country every 51 minutes. This translates to 27 deaths that are senseless each day. On top of those deaths, someone is injured every 120 seconds in a drunk driving crash. That's one person who suffers needlessly every two minutes because a drunk driver wouldn't just stay off the road.

Drunk driving accidents during the holidays are horrible

Drunk drivers are a public safety hazard. Around this time of year, people who are attending holiday parties might opt to consume alcohol. This in and of itself isn't necessarily a bad thing, but if those partygoers get behind the wheel of a vehicle, their decision can put other people in grave danger.

Drunk driving accidents claim far too many lives

A drunk driving accident is always a harrowing experience, but when the accident happens during the holiday season, the horror seems increased. The most obvious, and best, way that drunk driving accidents can be prevented is for people who have had alcohol to avoid driving. If a drunk driver does cause an accident, the victims of the accident may choose to seek compensation for the injuries they suffered.

Take a big stand against a drunk driver who injured you

When you are struck by a drunk driver, your life can change in more ways than you realize. You might know that you are going to have to work to heal from the physical injuries. That fact alone can be very difficult because these accidents can lead to severe injuries. We know that dealing with the physical injuries can seem like more than you can handle.

Fatal drunk driving crashes aren't as common here as nationally

People on the Connecticut roadways are a bit luckier than many other drivers across the nation. Connecticut's rate of deaths from drunk driving accidents is lower than the national rate. This is true for all demographics noted on a publication by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Drunk driving accidents are all too common in America

Drunk driving accidents can lead to serious injuries and deaths of innocent people who were just going about their daily activities. Drivers who are intoxicated are responsible for around one out of every three fatal accidents in this country. That harrowing statistic shows just how crucial it is for people who have been drinking to avoid driving.
