Denver Drunk Driving Injury Lawyers
Alcohol-Related Accidents Account for a Third of the State’s Fatalities
According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, more than 26,000 people are arrested each year in Colorado for DUIs and more than 150 people are killed in drunk driving accidents, accounting for a third of all traffic fatalities in the state. Colorado law qualifies an individual as driving under the influence if they have a BAC of 0.08% or higher, though it is possible to consider someone impaired even if the BAC is below that threshold.
Drunk driving is a prevalent problem across the nation and, according to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), nearly every hour, someone is killed in a drunk driving crash. While the statistics reveal grim fatality numbers, the injuries are even greater, amounting to nearly 350,000 in 2011. These injuries often leave survivors with life-altering conditions, and devastate families. They can and should be held accountable and we are here to help.
Hit by a Drunk Driver?
If you or someone you love has been injured by a drunk driver, you are undoubtedly experiencing a difficult time and may even face expensive medical bills as a result of any sustained injuries. To seek compensation, you will file a civil case against the drunk driver, and likely deal with either his or your own insurance company. Most insurance companies will be quick to settle for as little as possible, but you do not have to accept it.
