Some alarming facts about drunk driving

Drunk driving is one of the leading causes of accidents across the United States. Thousands of families are affected by these tragedies each year. Drunk driving is completely preventable. When people make the decision to drive after they have been drinking, they risk their lives and the lives of everyone else they meet on the road.

One alarming statistic for everyone on Colorado roads is that a drunk driver will drive drunk on average 80 times before they are caught for drunk driving. Every 120 seconds, someone is injured in a drunk driving accident across the United States. Every 51 minutes, a person in the United States is killed by a drunk driver. And one third of all accidents involving teenagers also involve alcohol.

A drunk driving accident is something no one expects to be involved in. Families affected by a drunk driver may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in personal injury. A personal injury attorney understands what a family is going through. They know they are facing unexpected medical expenses, loss of wages, and other financial losses, in addition to extreme emotional trauma. A drunk driving legal case can be complex and involve many investigative and legal intricacies. This is why hiring a skilled personal injury attorney can be beneficial for the victim and their family.

A drunk driver should be held accountable for their actions. There is no excuse for someone who drives drunk and filing a lawsuit against them for punitive damage compensation is within the victim's legal rights.
