The Cost of Accidents Involving Intoxicated Drivers

The Cost of Accidents Involving Intoxicated Drivers

Rock Hill SC Auto Accident Lawyer

Most people know that drunk driving is a dangerous and foolish act. However, many do not know just how damaging it can be. Sadly, all of the following statistics about drunk driving are TRUE:

  • Over 10,000 people die each year in alcohol-related car accidents in the U.S.
  • One person is killed every 50 minutes in a drunk driving accident.
  • One person is injured in a drunk driving accident every minute.
  • One in three people will be involved in an alcohol-related crash in their lifetime.
  • The average drunk driver has been drunk 87 times before being caught.

The very real lesson here is that drunk driving can lead to serious injuries and, in many cases, loss of life. You should never drink and drive, and you should talk to your kids about the dangers of drunk driving.

If you or a family member has been injured or even killed by a negligent drunk driver, then you face a harsh and difficult reality. The victims of North and South Carolina drunk driving wrongful death accidents go beyond those that have been killed. The people left behind after fatal drunk driving accidents have to deal with many hardships, including:

  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Funeral costs
  • Medical bills and permanent losses
  • Lost wages
  • And more.
