The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 3 out of every 10 Americans will be involved in drunk driving accidents at some point in their lives. An alarming number of people involved in these accidents are innocent victims. The drunk driving accidents attorneys of The Travis Law Firm serving Erie, Edinboro, Crawford County, Warren County, and all of Northwestern Pennsylvania can help victims of drunk driving accidents secure the compensation they and their loved ones deserve.
In 2013, 381 people died in alcohol related accidents in Pennsylvania alone. Of course, that includes not only other drivers, but also passengers, pedestrians and cyclists. Accidents involving motorists driving under the influence of illegal drugs such as cocaine and marijuana are also considered “driving while intoxicated” (DWI) and “driving under the influence” (DUI) offenses, and accounted for about 18 percent of motor vehicle driver deaths. If, tragically, you have lost a member of your family in a DUI/DWI accident, you may be eligible to collect compensation from the responsible party by filing a wrongful death claim.
