WHEN DRUNKS GET BEHIND THE WHEEL
The Dangers Of Intoxicated Driving
Drunk driving accounts for a large portion of all car accident fatalities. Each year, thousands of people in the U.S. die in alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes, representing over one-third of all traffic-related deaths in the country. In the vast majority of cases, the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of the impaired driver is .08 percent or higher.
Over 1 million drivers are arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics every year. That’s less than one percent of the 159 million self-reported episodes of alcohol-impaired driving among U.S. adults each year.
You Deserve The Best Possible Legal Representation If Injured In A Drunk Driving Accident
While the Connecticut criminal justice system is equipped to deal with the criminal aspects of a drunk driving accident, it usually fails to address the heavy financial burden that a death or serious personal injury has on innocent victims and families.
