Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents

CT Car Accident Lawyers Representing Drunk Driving Accident Victims

The Dangers Of Intoxicated Driving

Sadly, 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. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 926 people are injured everyday in drunk driving accidents. Innocent people endure life-altering injuries due to drunk driving instances.  

Who is Responsible for Drunk Driving Accidents?

A numbers of parties may be held liable for drunk driving accidents, including:

 Drivers. A drunk driver is responsible for their own behavior, including getting behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. 

 Hosts. In the event that a guest causes a drunk driving accident after attending a party where alcohol was served, the host can be held responsible, especially if the host knew the guest was clearly intoxicated when the alcohol was provided.

 Bar/Restaurant Staff & Owners. Bar and restaurant owners and employees can also be at fault for drunk driving accidents. It is their responsibility to stop serving customers who seem to be intoxicated.
