Drunk Driving Accidents Archives

Drunk driving accidents can lead to compensation claims

One of the questions that is likely to come up when a person is involved in a car crash is whether the person who caused the accident was intoxicated. This won't have an impact on the outcome of the accident, it can have a big impact on a claim for compensation. We understand that you might already feel overwhelmed by the situation. You might not think that you can handle anything else right now. This is where we come in.

Don't fall victim to drunk drivers this weekend

Drunk drivers can kill. With the big game this weekend, everyone will need to pay more attention to the actions of other drivers to ensure that they aren't falling victim to drunk drivers. There isn't any way that police officers can keep every drunk driver off the roads, so you must try to do your part to keep yourself safe.

A quick reminder about steps to take after a car accident

When you are in a car crash, you are likely going to be shaken up. You need to have a plan in mind to handle the aftermath of a crash before the accident so that you can remember that plan once you have a few moments to gather your thoughts after the crash.

The intersection of truckers and drunk driving is dangerous

We've recently discussed semitruck crashes and how devastating these accidents can be for the victims. What some people don't realize is that semitruck accidents might be fully preventable. One instance of this is when a trucker is drunk and decides to drive.

Football season is a prime time for drunk drivers

We are in a very dangerous time of year right now. Football season is leading to parties and the busy fall and winter holiday season is fast approaching, which means that there are parties to celebrate those holidays. All of these parties mean that people might be consuming alcohol more frequently as they party.

Know what to do after being hit by a drunk driver

Being hit by a drunk driver is something that drastically change your life. Determining what you need to do after the accident is difficult. One thing that you will need to do, in most cases, is to seek medical care. This helps you to get an official diagnosis that can help you to know what you need to do to address the injuries.

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.
