Louisville Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that almost 30 people are killed each day in drunk driving accidents across the country – equaling one fatality every 50 minutes. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data shows that 10,497 people died in 2016 in crashes involving alcohol-impaired drivers. In 2019, reports the NHTSA,180 people in Kentucky were killed in alcohol-related crashes.

You May Be Eligible For Even More Money
Because driving while intoxicated is such a reckless and dangerous thing to do, juries may award accident victims punitive damages on top of other personal injury damages. Punitive damages essentially provide extra money to the victim. They are intended to punish the wrongdoer and serve as an example to others.
