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
- 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
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.
