Drunk Driving Crashes

Were You Seriously Injured By A Drunk Driver?

Nearly 10,000 people were killed in car crashes involving a drunk driver in 2014 alone according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), accounting for approximately one out of every three traffic fatalities that year. While the law permits people to operate their vehicles with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or lower, any level of impairment can lead to a devastating collision and seriously injure or even kill those involved. If you were seriously injured in a crash caused by someone driving under the influence, you may be able to secure the compensation you need to cover any damages and medical costs through legal channels.

What To Do If You’re Ever In An Accident

If you are ever involved in a car crash, the most important thing to do is to keep calm, especially if you or your passengers are injured. While keeping a cool head may be the most difficult task you could attempt, doing so will allow you to sort through the situation and take the necessary actions to secure the help you need.

  • Look Out For Your Own Safety: Just like airplane safety videos tell us, the first thing you need to do is secure your own mask – or in this case, checking yourself for injuries – before you help others. Even if you feel completely fine and would rather focus on the safety of those around you, it’s important to get checked out by a doctor both to ensure that you don’t have a hidden issue that will become worse over time and to begin documenting your injuries to use in court.
  • Contact The Police: You need to call 911 as soon as you’ve checked to make sure that you and your passengers are okay, especially if you find out that some or all of you need immediate medical attention. Once any medical professionals and/or police officers arrive on the scene, answer all of their questions honestly to help them fill out their police report. They will also speak with the other drivers and passengers involved in the crash, as well as any witnesses in the area.
  • Get The Other Driver’s Information: You need to take down the contact, insurance and driver’s license information of all drivers involved in the crash.
