We are all well aware of exactly how dangerous drunk driving is. It is baffling that drunk drivers continue to take to the road, but the fact of the matter is that they do, and they are extremely dangerous drivers. If a drunk driver leaves you injured in a car accident, you shouldn’t put off consulting with an experienced Kansas City car accident attorney.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shares two very chilling statistics related to drunk driving in the United States, including:
- Every day, 28 people – on average – are killed by drunk drivers, which translates to one person every 52 minutes
- In 2019 alone, there were more than 10,000 deaths related to drunk driving
NHTSA points out that each of the deaths represented was absolutely preventable. Drunk drivers experience cognitive, sensory, and physical impairments that make them some of the most dangerous drivers out there. When you couple this with the fact that they also lose impulse control and exhibit poor judgment, the danger factor goes through the roof.

How do I prove the other driver was drunk?
If you believe the other driver was drunk, let the attending officer know. Otherwise, leave this task to your dedicated car accident attorney.
My medical expenses are so high; should I accept the insurance company’s settlement offer?
The insurance company is counting on your financial desperation and is hoping that you’ll accept their lowball settlement offer. Your medical providers will very likely make reasonable arrangements with you while your claim is pending.
Will my claim go to court?
The vast majority of car accident claims settle out of court, and yours is very likely to do the same.
