Were you injured a by a drunk driver?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 23% of all fatal crashes were caused by drunk drivers with a blood alcohol content level (BAC) of 0.8 or higher. As these statistics indicate, unfortunately, mixing alcohol and driving has become a major contributing factor to a large percentage of auto collision injuries and fatalities nationwide.
Despite continued education efforts and constant police enforcement of Alabma’s DUI laws, it is a sad fact of life that there are irresponsible individuals that decide to get behind the wheel and drive when they are under the influence of alcohol.
However, in the event of a car crash due to someone driving while being intoxicated, the negligent driver must be held accountable for their irresponsible actions – and that is accomplished by filing a civil claim against the offending driver. Once that formal legal action has been filed, criminal negligence can then be claimed against the driver – consequently, it is often possible to seek punitive damages from the driver in that case.

Mobile Drunk Driving Accident Lawsuit Options
Recently released statistics by the Alabama division of the DMV indicate that at least 20% of all traffic deaths are the result of drivers being under the influence of alcohol or drugs – and this is despite the State of Alabama placing a maximum blood alcohol concentration level of 0.08% for drivers (and an even lower percentage for commercial truck and public transport drivers).

Unfortunately, in many cases the injuries are fatal – frequently leaving behind families and children that need help and simply don’t know what to do or who to turn to.
