Bradenton Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys
Drunk drivers are a menace. According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), a shocking average of 28 people die as a result of drunk driving crashes every day in the United States. Many of these drunk drivers have a long history of drunk driving, including a history of previous arrests for doing it. Fortunately, Florida has enhanced criminal penalties for repeat drunk driving offenders in our state, meaning that these dangerous drivers can eventually face serious prison time if they continue their reckless behavior. Unfortunately, no amount of prison time can undo the harm drunk drivers cause when they cause an accident. That is why the victims of drunk drivers need the assistance of our Bradenton drunk driving accident attorneys in order to obtain the compensation to which they are entitled.
DUI Accidents Cause Serious Injuries; Seek Legal Counsel from Bradenton Drunk Driving Attorneys
Drunk drivers cause serious car accidents that result in devastating injuries. Even small amounts of alcohol consumption can lead to a loss in judgment, an impaired ability to multitask, and impaired coordination. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), alcohol-related crashes in the United States cost more than $59 billion each year. Almost one-third of traffic fatalities are caused by or otherwise involve a driver who is impaired by alcohol. U.S. adults self-report a terrifying 112 million episodes of drunk driving each year. Even when the accidents are not fatal, they can result in serious injuries. Traumatic brain injuries can be one particularly sad result that can forever affect the victim’s ability to function and communicate. Other injuries can lead to long-term or even permanent mobility issues, not to mention extraordinary pain and suffering both immediately and throughout the rehabilitation process. Many of these serious injuries can cause victims to, at a minimum, miss work or, in some cases, never be able to return to work. They can also severely impact the victim’s relationships with his or her family members. Seek help of our drunk driver accident attorneys to insure reliable legal representation.
Experienced Bradenton Drunk Drivers Who Can Also Represent Victims of Drugged Driving
The CDC reports that drugs other than alcohol, like marijuana and cocaine, are involved in almost one out of every five motor vehicle driver deaths. In some of these cases the drugs are used in conjunction with alcohol, but not always. Every drug has some effect on a user’s body and/or perception of the world around the user—after all, that is the whole appeal of using the drug in the first place. While these effects can vary dramatically from drug to drug, what they share in common is that they affect the driver’s ability to drive safely. Proving drugged driving can be much harder than proving drunk driving simply because, unlike with drunk driving, there is not solid scientific evidence regarding what amounts of certain drugs in a user’s system impair driving. That is why you need the help of a Bradenton DUI accident attorney with experience in this area who understands how various intoxicants affect the human body and who can explain that to a jury.
