Drunk Driving Accidents Archives

Drunk driving law reduces Illinois traffic fatalities

We accept many dangers when we take to the road by car or on foot. Inattentive drivers can miss vital details like a traffic light or turn signal, and negligence with a motor vehicle can cause severe property damage, injuries and sometimes fatalities.

1 percent of traffic deaths are linked to wrong-way accidents

Being involved in a wrong-way accident is terrifying. You never expect it, it happens incredibly quickly, and there may be nothing you can do to avoid the crash. Every time a wrong-way crash is reported in the news, people worry that it could happen to them.

Even at the legal limit, the odds of a crash triple

Everyone knows that drunk driving can lead to accidents. However, you also know that the Blood Alcohol Concentration limit for most drivers is 0.08. Do you assume that that line marks a "safe" amount of alcohol? After all, if your BAC is under that level, you can legally drive.

2 big reasons that teens drive drunk

Teens often don't seem to realize the danger of driving drunk. They know that it's illegal, just as they know that their own drinking is also illegal. And yet they still get behind the wheel after having too much to drink. Many times, this ends in accidents, injuries and fatalities.

A wrongful death lawsuit is a path to justice

As we head into the holiday season, the likelihood of alcohol-involved fatal wrecks increases. Holiday parties where booze flows freely are often the culprit, but so are those who get depressed around Christmas and toss back a few too many at the bar and then try to drive home.
