Drunk Driving Accidents Archives

Are North Carolina bars responsible for drunk driving accidents?

Being involved in a car accident is never an enjoyable experience. When someone is considered at fault for an accident that resulted in a death, the situation becomes even more distressing, especially if the driver believed the other person could have been at fault. Drunk driving accidents resulting in a death can be especially difficult to conclude as all parties involved are unable to give their accounts of the accident.

Drunk driving accidents cause personal injury and death claims

If you can't get yourself a designated driver, at least get in the vehicle alone and don't take anyone with you. But those words weren't heeded by a 24-year-old man arrested for DUI after he lost control of his car and went off the roadway and hit several trees, according to police. Drunk driving accidents in North Carolina are a tragic source of personal injury and wrongful death claims for compensation due to the huge numbers of human destruction that they reap.

Designated drivers still drinking and getting behind the wheel

To reduce the number of drunk driving car accidents, safety campaigns urged people to have a designated driver when they had too much to drink. Having a designated driver is supposed to help everyone get home safely but a new report found that designated drivers may not be so safe after all.

NTSB wants to reduce blood alcohol content to reduce crashes

The National Transportation Safety Board recently recommended that North Carolina and all states should reduce the drunk driving threshold to .05 to reduce the number of car accidents caused by drunk drivers. They reported that roughly one-third of all traffic fatalities in the country are caused by drunk driving.
