Did you know that alcohol related accidents may make up 18% of the $103 billion that companies in the United States spend on insurance claims? That is over 18 billion dollars a year according to a study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. We have all seen the news reports of the drunk drivers who injure someone after their third or fourth drunk driving incident, but a study conducted by Carinsurance.com states that one in every three drunk driving arrests are associated with repeat offenders. That is an incredibly high statistic and a frightening thought when it comes to your safety on the road. Often the repeat offenders have a suspended license and have been dropped by their insurance, but with the help of an experienced Las Vegas personal injury lawyer you may still get a compensation for your injuries.
If you are injured by a drunk driver you may need an attorney to represent your interests and protect your rights.
