Everyone likes to have a good time. Unfortunately, when a person has had too much to drink and drives, a good time sometimes leads to the injury or even death of another human being. When someone gets behind the wheel of a vehicle while under the influence of a controlled substance, such as alcohol, they are committing the crime of drunk driving. The police are always on the lookout for drunk drivers, but they cannot catch them all. According to the Mothers Against Drunk Driving website, the average drunk driver gets behind the wheel 80 times before they are finally apprehended. This means that the chances of getting involved in a drunk driving accident, even if you are not drinking, are very high. If this happens, you will want a car accident attorney to bring that driver to justice.

Drunk Driving Accidents Are No Party
Drunk Driving is one of the leading causes of auto accidents in the United States. In fact, according to the National Traffic Highway Safety Administration one in three people will be involved in an alcohol-related traffic accident in their lifetime. Unfortunately, many of these accidents lead to death, with 11,773 alcohol-related traffic fatalities in 2008 alone. With statistics like these, you would think people would be less likely to get behind the wheel after they have been drinking, but the truth is, alcohol impairs a person’s ability to make appropriate decisions and thousands of people drive drunk every day.
If you have been injured in an accident and the other driver had been drinking you could be eligible for financial restitution for your injuries, contact Calahan Law to learn how we can help you bring the other driver to justice!
