Dangers of Drunk Driving
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around
30% of all traffic-related fatalities in the United States involve drunk
drivers. An individual who drives while under the influence of alcohol
is considered negligent, which is enough to pursue a
personal injury claim in the event of an accident. If the drunk driver did not have insurance
coverage or your losses exceed their coverage limits, you might pursue
compensation under your won uninsured/underinsured motorist policy.
Alcohol causes drivers to:
- Feel tired and drowsy
- Have a delayed reaction time
- Have impaired judgment

Victims and families of drunk driving accidents may be able to recover
compensation such as:
- Medical care for current and long-term expenses, such as surgeries, rehabilitation,
hospital bills, etc.
