Drunk driving is one of the leading causes of auto accident in the United States.
Every day, thousands of people get behind the wheel even though they know they have had too much to drink. In doing so, they put the lives of other drivers, passengers and pedestrians at risk. Drunk-driving accidents take the lives of, and injure too many innocent people every year in San Bernardino County.
Statistics show that more than 30 percent of all Americans can expect to be involved in a drunk-driving accident in their lifetime. These figures are unacceptable. Those lucky enough not to be killed by these negligent drivers may be left with life-changing injuries such as paralysis or brain damage.
Those who choose to drive drunk may serve time in jail, lose their licenses and pay huge fines. However, this still does not make up for the pain and trauma suffered by the victims.
If you have been injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver, contact a San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who has experience in drunk-driving cases and will help you obtain the compensation you need to move forward.
