Alcohol Related Injuries

The rate of drunk driving has decreased over the past decade, due in large part to powerful public safety campaigns as well as stricter criminal penalties for people who drive drunk.

Drunk-driving does still happen, though, and when an impaired person gets behind the wheel of a car — the likelihood of a serious accident is high.

Anyone injured in a drunk-driving accident should seek immediate legal guidance. This is true for passengers in cars driven by impaired persons and for pedestrians or occupants of other vehicles hit by a drunk driver.
