Impaired driving affected you; you can be compensated

Impaired driving is a serious concern in America, and it affects many people from all walks of life. In fact, almost 30 people die every day in the United States because of collisions caused by impaired drivers. It's not only them who suffer; their families and friends are hurt by drivers' bad choices, too. Each year, the cost of these collisions and deaths rises to $59 billion.

Who is most at risk in these accidents? Young people, motorcyclists and drivers with past convictions. People between 21 and 24 made up one out of every three involved in fatal crashes with blood alcohol concentration levels of .08 percent or higher in 2013. Motorcyclists were shown to have BACs of .08 percent of higher in 27 percent of fatal crashes in the same year. On top of that, close to half of those impaired drivers who passed away while riding a motorcycle were 40 or older, showing that it's not just a teenage concern.

Finally, those who have previously been convicted for driving under the influence were more likely to be involved in a second crash. In fact, drivers with a BAC of .08 or higher were six times more likely to have a DUI conviction on their records than others.

Our website has more information about intoxicated driving and what you can do if you've been victimized. There's no reason anyone should be behind the wheel of a vehicle when they're not sober. That negligence has led to pain and suffering for you and your family, and you deserve to be compensated.
