According to the National Highway Safety Administration (NHSA), drunk driving claims more than 10,000 lives each year. This breaks down to about 30 lives a day—that’s one person every 50 minutes who dies in an alcohol-related crash. On top of this, millions more sustain injuries that can cause lifelong debilitations and emotional trauma. Needless to say, drunk driving is a serious problem across the United States.
You may be familiar with the normal steps to take after a car accident, but if you believe you were hit by a potentially drunk driver, you should know how to approach the situation.
The most recent cost-related data for deaths and damages from drunk driving was last updated in 2010 and was estimated to be upwards of $44 billion.
