You can seek compensation after a drunk-driving accident

Drunk and drugged driving is a real risk on the roads for everyone, including the driver. People who think they can handle driving when they're intoxicated put others at risk of injury when simply staying out of the driver's seat would mean everyone would stay safe.

It's a fact, according to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, that close to 7 percent of drivers, generally under the age of 35, were found to have THC in their blood when they were tested following a fatal traffic accident. THC is a common marker found in the blood after smoking marijuana.

On top of that, another 16 percent or more of people driving at night and on the weekends tested positive for prescription, over-the-counter or illegal drugs, according to a 2007 poll, while over a fourth also had alcohol in their systems.

As a victim of a drunk or drugged driver, your life has been changed. You may not be able to go back on the roads without concern for your life or you may be dealing with the loss of limbs or feeling in your body. Maybe you're suffering from paralysis or memory loss from a head or neck injury; whatever has happened, it was because of someone else's negligence, and that wasn't fair to you.

Our website has information on how you can make a claim for the compensation you need to pay off medical bills, cover your travel or other expenses related to your care and to cover the wages you haven't been able to earn while you've been unable to work.
