Cedar Rapids Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer
Any motor vehicle accident is a devastating event, especially when injury or death is involved. However, the horrors of an accident seem even worse when the accident unnecessarily takes place because of an alcohol-impaired driver. Despite significant changes in drunk driving legislation over the past twenty years, drunk driving accidents continue to take place with alarming regularity.
One study found that in the year 2006 alone there were 13,470 fatalities due to drunk driving accidents. These alcohol-related fatalities represent 37% of all traffic fatalities that took place that year. Sadly, despite all of the work done by anti-drunk driving legislation and activist groups, the number of alcohol-related fatalities in 2006 is roughly the same as the number in 1996.
