Drunk Driving Accidents

Everyday, 28 people in the United States die in motor-vehicle crashes that involve an alcohol-impaired driver. Hundreds more are injured and require medical attention which may last anywhere from a few days to the rest of their lives. Chances are you know someone who has been affected by an alcohol-related accident. 

Those injured by alcohol-impaired drivers have a right to receive compensation for the damages they now face as a result. Accidents caused by drunk drivers are generally classified as preventable and without excuse. Most states are equipped to deal with the criminal consequences of a drunk driving accident. However, they often fail to address the financial implications that a death or serious injury can have on innocent victims and their families. 

Alcohol-related vehicle collisions are responsible for an alarming number of traffic deaths in Idaho each year.
