Car accidents can be devastating. Victims of serious crashes can face painful injuries, high medical costs, long term rehabilitation and have to worry about the cost of repairing their vehicle and rebuilding their life after a collision. Although almost every accident can leave someone feeling stressed and shook up, drunk driving accidents can be particularly emotional. Statistics show that a good majority of drunk driving collisions result in serious injuries or fatalities of innocent victims and if you have been involved in an accident, you deserve compensation!
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimated that over 32,885 people died in car accidents last year—10,228 of which were related to a drunk driving accident. In recent years there has been a significant decline in drunk driving deaths (about 35%) but the numbers are still high. With the implementation of drunk driving awareness programs, diligence of law enforcement and random check points, drunk drivers have been, for the most part, thwarted to remain off our streets; however, there are still the reckless and negligent people who get behind the wheel while they are intoxicated.
Numerous studies have gone to show that drunk drivers have an incredibly impaired ability to respond to traffic rules and regulations, apply good judgment on speed and distance and have an overall impaired perspective of how dangerous they really are to innocent drivers. Victims of drunk driving accidents can face serious injuries such as costs and lacerations, broken bones, spine and brain injuries, and sometimes even death. If you or a loved one has been hurt by a drunk driver in Los Angeles, Norwalk, La Habra, or another Los Angeles city, do not hesitate to speak to a personal injury lawyer and drunk driving accident lawyer at the Ghozland Law Firm to receive the compensation you deserve.
