Were You In An Accident With A Drunk Driver?

Drunk driving is a serious problem in Ohio and contributes to many fatal and injury accidents every day in Ohio. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) refers to drunk driving crashes as “alcohol-impaired-driving” accidents. The NHTSA’s figures often change as more data becomes available. The following statistics are estimates and subject to fluctuation. But even if the numbers change with time, the lesson remains the same – drunk driving claims lives.

  • There were 13,384 drunk driving deaths in 2021, a 14% increase from 2020. In 2008, that number was 11,773, meaning the problem has only gotten worse over time.
  • Drunk driving deaths accounted for 31% of the total amount of United States car accident deaths (42,939) in 2021.
  • Nighttime drivers were four times more likely to die in drunk driving crashes.
  • Of the drunk driving crashes where seat belt use was known, nearly 25% of all drunk drivers killed in accidents in 2021 weren’t wearing seat belts.

In Ohio and most of the United States, the legal limit for blood alcohol concentration for drivers 21 years of age or older is .08 g/dL (grams per deciliter) or higher. Additionally, research by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety suggests that the risk of being killed in a solo-vehicle crash for drivers with a B.A.C. between .05 and .09 is 11 times higher than for drivers without any alcohol in their system. If you have been injured as a result of a drunk driver getting behind the wheel, we can help you obtain justice and compensation for your injuries.

We Stand Up For You In Complex Reimbursement Issues

One underappreciated complication of pursuing compensation is dealing with reimbursement. Often, for your initial treatment, your personal insurance company may initially cover the costs of your medical care. However, if you receive a settlement or judgment in your favor for your injuries, you may face one surprising problem: reimbursement.

Your insurance company will want repayment for any money that they paid on your behalf, and they will be aggressive in pursuit of it. You may face liens and these will be extremely stressful. Our team is familiar with these issues and can move quickly to help. The journey to recovery should be clean, and dealing with a lien once you’ve finally recovered compensation is a major setback. We handle these issues for free for our clients.
