Driver distraction and high speeds associated with drunk drivers cause terrible injuries, and often death. In 2010, drunk drivers killed someone in the U.S. every 48 minutes, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
While groups like MADD and SADD have made an impact on drunk driving, it’s still a national epidemic.
In 2018, drunk drivers killed 10,511 people. In 2017, drunk drivers caused 29% of all traffic fatalities; higher than the amount from tractor-trailer collisions.
That means that one drunk driving a passenger sedan can be deadlier than an 80,000 pound truck moving at 80 miles per hour.
Our lawyers have over 50 years of combined experience with drunk driving car accidents. Amazingly, many insurance companies still force injured people to file lawsuits just to get the justice they deserve from incredibly drunk drivers. With over 100 trials between them, Miller Law Group is not afraid to try your case if that’s what it takes to get you the results you deserve, and to hold drunk drivers accountable.
North Carolina has powerful punitive damage statutes to protect our communities by deterring drunk drivers from repeating their actions, and by showing others what happens if they drive drink. But those statutes only work if you push back with a civil claim against these drivers and their insurance companies: the district attorneys can’t take the same actions we can.
