In the United States alone, approximately 30 people die every day due to alcohol-impaired driving crashes. That’s one life lost every 50 minutes. These accidents can result in life-altering events for the victims and their families. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 29% of all traffic-related fatalities are a result of alcohol-impaired driving.
Cases involving drivers under the influence can be complex and difficult. The at-fault driver’s criminal case is separate but related to the civil case; deadlines and important events begin even faster, and it is crucial to hire a lawyer as soon as possible. Drunk driving cases can also involve additional parties such as a bar or establishment that overserves the at-fault driver. These claims are referred to as dram shop cases and are evaluated in an entirely different way from a typical automobile accident case.
We are committed to holding drunk drivers accountable for their actions and helping victims rebuild their lives. You don’t have to face the aftermath of a drunk driving accident alone. At Hollingsworth Injury Law, we have experience managing personal injury cases, including those arising from the negligent and reckless act of driving while intoxicated.
