When Drunk Drivers Cause Devastating Accidents
Car accidents can happen to any of us, but it is especially difficult when the car accident is caused by the carelessness of a drunk driver. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately one-third of all traffic fatalities in the U.S. are caused by impaired drivers. In addition, those who are not killed by a drunk driver, are very likely to be seriously injured in accidents caused by DUI drivers.
The financial impact of impaired driving is also high. The NHTSA reports that drunk driving accounts for $44 billion in economic costs, including:
- Medical expenses
- Loss of productivity
- Loss of income
- Legal and attorney fees
- Property damage
- Funeral expenses
No Amount of Money Can Make Up for Your Loss
While the economic cost of impaired driving is high, no amount of money can be placed on the value of your loved ones or your life before a catastrophic injury. However, an attorney can pursue compensation on your behalf in order to hold those at fault accountable and to help defray the financial toll the loss may cause you and your family. There is no question that a drunk driving accident will alter your life forever. At Morris & Player PLLC, our lawyers understand the emotional toll this takes on you and your family. We have extensive experience representing clients in motor vehicle accident cases.
