While there are a number of causes of death that claim more lives than drunk driving, the great tragedy of the more than 10,000 annual drunk driving accident fatalities in this country is that every one of them is completely avoidable. Nevertheless, over 10,000 families are left to grieve the loss of loved ones every year because of drinking and driving. Something that never should have happened takes the lives of innocent people and shatters families.
Something to keep in mind as a Colorado driver is that under Colorado law, drinking and driving is not the only way to get a DUI; driving under the influence of drugs will merit a DUI as well. Anyone who has been drinking or using drugs that may impair their faculties, whether the drugs are illicit or prescribed, should stay out of the driver’s seat. That one simple thing could save thousands of lives every year.
People know that DUI is a criminal offense, for which an offender may be charged in criminal court, but if while committing that crime he or she causes injury to other people or damage to property, the drunk driver may be liable for civil damages as well. If your family has been affected by a drunk driver, contact a compassionate, experienced Denver personal injury lawyer today to discuss your options.
No one should be able to destroy a family simply by being unable to resist the urge to get in the car after having one too many, but the sad fact is that it happens all the time. While under the influence of drugs or alcohol, people may believe that they can handle their car, and that they can drive safely; this leads to putting themselves and everyone around them in danger. Sometimes the result shatters a family. Again, the tragedy is that every one of these accidents is preventable.
