An overview of drunk driving accident injuries

When it comes to drunk driving accidents, finding information on the precise number of injuries that take place each year is difficult. However, a considerable number of people suffer various injuries related to drunk driving crashes in New London, Connecticut, and all over the U.S. From missed work to a lifelong injury, DUI injuries can have serious repercussions.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one million drivers were taken into custody for driving under the influence over the course of 2014. However, adults across America admitted to 121 million instances of drunk driving, which sheds light on the number of people who operate a vehicle while drunk and are not held accountable for their dangerous behavior.

On their site, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration provides some startling statistics. During 2010, motor vehicle accidents that involved alcohol caused 430,000 non-fatal injuries. When victims of a DUI wreck are hurt, their life may unravel in many ways. For example, they may lose their ability to walk, struggle to pay medical expenses or have a great deal of mental trauma following the crash.

When drivers make the irresponsible decision to put others' lives at risk by operating a vehicle while they are drunk or intoxicated because of drug use, they should not get away with their actions. Furthermore, people who are struggling with the consequences of collisions that were caused by intoxicated drivers should examine all options on the table and ensure that these drivers do not get away with their recklessness.
