Nearly a third of all traffic-related deaths involve the use of alcohol. Even one or two drinks at a work party or a family holiday event can impact your driving and cause extreme injury to you and others. In 2016, there were 2,017 people killed in alcohol-related crashes where drivers had lower blood alcohol levels (BACs of .01 to .07 g/dL). Even with these lower alcohol levels, you can expect to experience difficulty multi-tasking, visual impairment, and reduced coordination. All of these potential symptoms make it harder to react in an emergency situation on the road.

We all know that drunk driving is no laughing matter. The evidence clearly shows that drunk drivers are more likely to cause property damage, car crashes, roadway injuries, vehicular fatalities and pedestrian deaths.
Over one million U.S. drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol in 2016. If you're injured by a drunk driver, the last thing on your mind is the mess of legal struggles ahead, but these legal proceedings are one of the most important aspects of the accident if you wish to fully recover damages caused by the negligent driver.
