Research from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that individuals in a single driver crash are 3 times more likely to die when driving with a 0.08 blood alcohol content when compared with those drivers who have a 0% blood alcohol content.
Those individuals who are driving behind the wheel of a car while under the influence of alcohol are at a greater risk of killing or severely injuring others. Major states like Texas, Florida and California have the most total deaths associated with alcohol related crashes.
If you have recently been injured in an accident due to someone else’s drunk driving, you may be entitled to recover compensation by filing a personal injury claim. Any situation in which a driver is negligent, reckless or otherwise breaking a law behind the wheel of a car can put you in a position to recover money so as to help support you with a personal injury claim.
Do not hesitate to reach out to an experienced lawyer if you find yourself in this situation. A lawyer can help you determine if someone else may be held liable for the accident so that you can pursue compensation.
Drunk driving accidents leave behind a devastating wake in terms of property damage and injuries. When an accident victim pays the price, he or she may be able to file a personal injury claim in California.
