As we all know, heavy machinery and alcohol do not mix. Earlier this year, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) presented recommendations on better ways to deal with people who choose to get behind the wheel of their car after having a drink, or three.
In North Carolina, there were more than 10,000 alcohol-associated crashes in 2011, and 366 of those were fatal. Nationally, the NTSB notes almost 10,000 people die and 146,000 are injured each year in drunk driving accidents.
In deliberations detailed in its report Reaching Zero: Actions to Reduce Alcohol-Impaired Driving, the NTSB makes the following recommendations to reduce injury and loss of life:
One drunk driving injury or fatality is too many. Talk to a seasoned personal injury attorney if you suffer loss due to the negligence of a drunk driver.
“She was very professional, kept me completely involved and updated with everything. Awesome job done.”
“Maria stayed on top of everything with updates, etc.”
“Very good communication throughout my case. Brenda paid great attention to my case and kept me up to date.”
“Both attorneys involved were very informative and walked me through my case every setp of the way. They answered any questions and concerns I had whenever they cam up. I was very nervous and skeptical at the beginning but that quickly changed.”
