Drunk Driving Car Accidents and Personal Injury Guide

The Grave Reality of Drunk Driving Accidents

Every day, 28 lives are tragically lost in the United States due to car accidents involving drunk driving. This sobering statistic accounts for over one-third of all auto accident deaths nationwide. In 2015 alone, 10,265 individuals were killed in crashes where alcohol impairment played a significant role, with the highest percentage of drunk drivers being within the 21-34 age category. Despite the efforts of organizations like Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), which have successfully halved the number of drunk driving deaths since its inception in 1980, the danger and frequency of these incidents remain alarmingly high.

The Importance of Legal Representation in Drunk Driving Cases

Abeyta Nelson Injury Law is deeply committed to combating the peril of drunk driving and its devastating consequences on victims and their families. Our attorneys, Terry Abeyta, David Abeyta, and Rodney Nelson, emphasize the critical nature of seeking experienced legal representation in the aftermath of a drunk driving accident. Many people underestimate the complexity of personal injury claims arising from drunk driving incidents,» says Terry Abeyta. «It’s not just about proving the driver was intoxicated; it’s about fully understanding the impact on the victim’s life and securing the compensation they rightfully deserve.»

David Abeyta adds, «A common misconception is that the legal process is straightforward if the other driver was clearly impaired. However, navigating the nuances of insurance claims and potential litigation requires expertise to ensure victims are not left financially burdened by someone else’s reckless decision.

Rodney Nelson highlights the importance of prompt legal action, noting, «Time is of the essence in these cases. Evidence needs to be preserved, and the sooner we can begin advocating on behalf of our clients, the better their chances for a favorable outcome.»

Key Considerations in Drunk Driving Personal Injury Claims

Victims of drunk driving accidents and their families should consider several critical factors when pursuing a personal injury claim:

  • The importance of establishing the full extent of injuries and their impact on the victim’s quality of life.
  • The need for thorough investigation and preservation of evidence.
  • The potential for punitive damages in addition to compensatory damages.
  • The benefits of having a seasoned legal team to navigate the complexities of the legal system.
