Car accidents | Fast facts about drunk driving

It would be difficult to find a resident of Jersey City who does not believe that drunk driving contributes heavily to car accidents. Despite this widespread belief, many car accidents involving alcohol still happen in and around our city. Why does this keep happening? What can be done about it? How can victims become empowered after they are injured?

We have found that it is difficult to find specific answers to the above questions and many others. No two DUI car accidents are alike and no two victimized New Jersey citizens are alike. As personal injury lawyers, sometimes the best we can do is to help law-abiding citizens reduce drunk driving car accidents by reminding all residents of the disturbing facts associated with driving while intoxicated.

-- A single person will operate a motor vehicle under the influence about 80 times before his or her first DUI arrest occurs.

-- In the U.S., someone suffers an injury every 120 seconds in a drunk driving accident.

-- Someone dies in a drunk driving accident every 51 minutes in the U.S.

-- Between 50 and 75 percent of drunk drivers will continue to drive illegally even after their licenses are revoked or suspended.

-- About 1/3 of fatal teen car accidents involve alcohol or other intoxicating substances.

Another way lawyers who handle car accident claims help is by guiding victims through a personal injury lawsuit. This often empowers victims by returning to them control over their lives. For many, it is a way for them to hold the responsible parties to account while also giving them the compensation they need to recover physically, emotionally and financially.
