Injured or Lost a Loved One in a Drunk Driving Accident?

Law Offices of James M. Curran

Every single day across the country, approximately 27 people are killed in accidents involving drunk drivers. Numerous others are injured in such incidents. When a drunk driving accident occurs, whether in New Jersey or elsewhere, what can victims or — in the event of fatality — surviving family members do?

Sadly, many people who choose to drink and drive believe that alcohol consumption has little affect of their driving abilities. In fact, a person who regularly drives while impaired will typically drive under the influence an average of 80 times before his or her first arrest. That is 80 times that he or she is putting him or herself and the general public at risk.

It is extremely unfortunate that others are negatively affected by the choices of those who drive drunk. State laws have been put in place to help discourage this type of activity, and local law enforcement officers are often out in force to aid in catching those individuals who are driving while impaired. Despite such efforts, drunk driving accidents still occur fairly frequently in New Jersey.

When a drunk driving accident does occur, victims or — in the event of fatality — surviving family members may not know where they can turn. In accordance with the laws of New Jersey, after such an incident, those negatively affected may have legal recourse. Civil claims may be filed against the individual thought responsible for the collision in an effort to seek compensation for one’s losses. An experienced attorney can assist those who would like to pursue such actions in court.
