How common is drunk driving?

We all know about the issue of drunk driving in the United States. We hear the facts so often that it becomes easy to forget about how serious the consequences can be. However, the truth remains that every year there are parents, sons and daughters, and loved ones that are permanently affected by a driver's decision to get behind the wheel while intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol. By looking at the statistics that MADD has taken the time to compile from various well-respected sources more closely, we can realize just how serious of an issue we're facing.

One dead after motorcycle collides with truck

When inexperienced drivers are on the road, everyone is at risk. Whether the novice driver is a teen or adult, not having the skill and knowledge needed to safely operate a vehicle is dangerous for everyone sharing the road. Experience may come into question for one Kentucky truck driver who was involved in a crash that left one man dead.

Comparative Negligence rules could affect the amount you owe

Every year in Kentucky, more people are injured in road accidents, often as the result of negligence or recklessness on the part of someone else sharing the road with them. It happens all too often, yet some people still choose to disregard the rules of the road while driving.

Witness reports may strengthen your claim after a DUI accident

Every year in Kentucky, drunk drivers kill countless people on the roads. Some are other drivers or their passengers, some are pedestrians and some are simply bystanders caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Sadly, it is innocent people who often pay the price for a drunk driver's mistake, being left with serious injuries or even long-term disabilities.
