• The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provide an excellent source of information on a significant problem across the United States: drunk driving. Data from the CDC shows that about 1/3 of all people killed in motor vehicle accidents nationwide die in drunk driving accidents. With over 10,000 drunk driving fatalities every year, that is roughly 30 people every day on average. Perhaps the worst part of this sad statistic is that over 200 of these people, in 2010, were children aged 14 or under. Many of these children were riding in the car with the drunk driver. Over a million people are arrested for DUI each year, but based on self-reporting in polls, this is a tiny fraction of the people who actually drive drunk, which the CDC estimates at 112 million instances of drunk driving every year. That is well over 300,000 instances of drunk driving every single day.

    If your family has been hurt by a drunk driver, contact a dedicated Denver drunk driving accident attorney immediately to protect your rights.

    Everyone in the United states who is legally old enough to drive should know that driving drunk is dangerous. Everyone should know that driving while “buzzed” is still drunk driving. Most people will tell anyone who asks that drunk driving is wrong, and yet 300,000 times per day, someone gets behind the wheel after drinking too much. As a result, the drunk driving criminal charges are very severe. In many cases, these may be people who think they can “handle their liquor.” But regardless, research shows that even relatively small amounts of alcohol make driving extremely dangerous, not just to the driver, but to others as well. Most people have seen news reports about drunk drivers driving into buildings, or knocking down power lines, or other unpredictable results that create danger for many people.

    If you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a drunk driving accident, contact a dedicated Denver drunk driving accident attorney today. While the drunk driver may face criminal charges in Denver, that does not help you pay for the medical bills, property damage, funeral expense, or lost wages that the drunk driver may cause.

  • One man was killed in a wrong-way driving accident on US 36 in Westminster, according to 9 News. The eastbound lanes of the Boulder Turnpike had to be closed through the morning rush hour, so that a Major Accident Reconstruction Team can figure out exactly what went wrong to cause this tragic crash. Apparently, a Ford SUV traveling in the wrong direction on the Turnpike, US 36, crashed into an Acura in the early hours of the morning, before 3:00. A rider in the SUV was killed, and two people from each vehicle were taken to area hospitals, where their conditions have not been released. While investigators are unsure of the cause of the accident, they do believe that drugs or alcohol may have been involved in the accident.

    Have you lost a loved one in a car accident that was caused by the negligence of another driver? Contact an experienced Denver wrongful death attorney right away to discuss your options.

    Car accidents are one of the leading causes of accidental death in the United States, as they are responsible for over 30,000 fatalities annually, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Each of these accidents, regardless of cause, leaves at least one family to grieve the untimely death of a loved one. What makes these numbers more tragic is that many of these fatal crashes are preventable, caused by the negligent or careless driving of one or more driver. Furthermore, several thousand accidents are caused by drunk drivers every year. A fatal accident caused by drinking and driving seems even more pointless, because it is so easily preventable. Unfortunately, the fact that it could have been avoided is no consolation to the family of the deceased.

  • A alleged drunk driver crashed into a power tower, left the scene. And took himself to the hospital, according to the Denver Post. The man, who was found by police, and issued a summons for several charges, including DUI and hit-and-run, damaged the leg of an electrical tower operated by Xcel Energy, causing a situation where police and firefighters feared that the tower might actually collapse and fall on an area home. The owner of that home was called early in the morning by the city of Aurora, trying to warn him of the danger. He ignored the call, coming at about 5:30 in the morning, so a police officer and a firefighter went to his home to tell him that he should leave, as a precaution. Fortunately, the tower did not fall, and no one other than the driver was injured.
