Cincinnati Drunk Driving Accident Attorney

Fighting for DUI Accident Victims

Drunk driving causes catastrophic car accidents that tear families and lives apart. Although there has been progress in curbing drinking while driving from national awareness campaigns and effective law enforcement procedures, drunk driving continues to be a problem in Ohio, Kentucky and across the nation.

Drunk driving cases are multi-faceted, as there is also a criminal aspect and police investigations that will affect this type of civil case. The legal team at The Moore Law Firm has a long history of finding justice for victims of drunk driving accidents and our Cincinnati accident attorneys have the experience to handle complex civil litigation involving criminal elements, as well as multiple defendants.

Drunk Driving Auto Accident Statistics

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that approximately 10,000 individuals are involved in fatal car accidents annually due to drunk driving. Additionally:

  • One person dies in a drunk driving auto wreck every 50 minutes.
  • One in three people will be involved in an alcohol-related car crash in their lifetime.
  • The most frequently reported BAC rate for fatal car accidents is .18 percent, which is more than twice the legal limit of .8 percent.
  • Approximately 29 percent of motorcyclists killed in auto accidents had BACs of .08 or higher.
  • Drivers with a BAC of .08 percent or greater in fatal crashes were four times more likely to have a prior DUI criminal conviction than other drivers.
  • Drunk driving accidents have high potential to cause catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury, which often may require life-long care.
  • Between 300 and 450 people die each year from Ohio car accidents involving a driver with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or higher.

Truck Accidents Involving Alcohol or Impaired Driving

Semi-truck accidents are sometimes attributable to drunk or impaired driving. This includes not only the use of alcohol, but also prescription medications and illegal drugs. Profit drives the trucking industry, and large corporate employers push their drivers to the limits. Some drivers cope with this stress by using alcohol or drugs while behind the wheel, and when they do, they put all motorists at grave risk of serious personal injury.

Trucking accidents are different from auto accidents as they often involve multiple defendants, industry regulations, powerful corporations and insurance carriers. As a former insurance claims adjuster, Donald C. Moore, Jr. knows exactly the types of tactics the trucking industry and their insurance carriers are going to use to minimize their own liabilities from the very beginning, and how the innocent motorist can fight back.
