Drunk Driving Accidents

Our firm sues drunk drivers. Plain and simple. We do what we can to keep these drivers off the road. A drunk or drugged driver is severely impaired and lost their capacity to safely drive a vehicle. A drunk driver places motorists, pedestrians, passers-by and others at risk for their lives. The statistics relating to drunk drivers are frightening.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the following information pertains to intoxicated and impaired drivers in the United States:

  • 30: the number of people per day in the United States who die in a motor vehicle crash that involves an alcohol-impaired driver
  • 48: every 48 minutes there is a death related to drunk-driving
  • 211: children aged 0-4 whose death involved an alcohol-impaired driver
  • More than 1.4 million: the number of drivers arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol in 2010
  • About 18%: the percentage of motor vehicle driver deaths involving other drugs (not alcohol)

If you were injured by an impaired driver, or if a loved one lost their life in a drunk-driving accident, it is important to speak to an attorney as soon as possible in order to preserve your rights to compensation. If a case is not filed before the statute of limitations expires, the claimant may permanently forfeit their right to file a personal injury or wrongful death suit. The Law Firm of Paul W. VanDerwerken represents victims of drunk-driving accidents and the families of deceased family members.

Those Who are at the Greatest Risk of a Drunk-Driving Crash

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveals who is at the greatest risk of being involved in a drunk-driving crash:

  • Young people: “At all levels of blood alcohol concentration (BAC), the risk of being involved in a crash is greater for young people than for older people.”
  • Motorcyclists: 28% of motorcyclists who were killed in a fatal crash in 2010 had a BAC of .08% or greater
  • Those drivers who have prior drunk-driving convictions (DWI) are four times more likely to have a prior conviction for DWI than those who do not have a DWI conviction
