Were You Hit by a Drunk Driver?
In its 2018 annual report, the California Office of Traffic Safety surveyed 1,271 drivers aged 18 and over at gas stations in 15 counties throughout Central, Northern and Southern California. The report contained many statistics regarding drunk driving accidents and fatalities. A few examples:
- 6.5% Say drunk driving is the biggest safety problem on California roadways
- 6.3% Said they drove after having too much alcohol to drive safely
- 15.4% of those surveyed said that motorists were somewhat unlikely to get arrested if they drove drunk
- 1,167 People were killed in alcohol-involved collisions in 2017 in California
Although many organizations and prominent individuals have taken a stand against drunk driving in recent years, the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) still reports that approximately 29 people die every day in auto accidents involving drunk drivers. This is one death every 50 minutes. The annual cost of alcohol-related crashes totals more than $44 billion.

If the other driver was legally intoxicated, you may also be eligible to pursue additional monetary damages through a punitive damage claim. Punitive damages are intended to punish the drunk driver and make an example of him or her.

“I was involved in an automobile accident last year (hit by a drunk driver) and sustained a nasty neck injury. As soon as I hired Scott Corwin, I was sent to the appropriate doctor, was prescribed physical therapy, and had my car towed in for repairs. Scott is a true professional, keeps you informed during the entire legal process, and was surprisingly able to negotiate a settlement that I was very pleased with!”
