Consequences Of DUI For Those Injured By A Drunk Driver

In 2011, over 13,000 people in the State of Alabama were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In the same year, 278 people died in the state as a result of auto accidents caused by alcohol impaired driving. For those that choose to recklessly and carelessly cause harm to others by getting behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated, the law requires that the consequences of DUI be severe. In completely different ways, however, those who have been injured or have lost a loved one because of a drunk driver suffer consequences of DUI that can be even more devastating. An experienced attorney at Maloney-Lyons LLC can help victims seek justice and just compensation for all of their physical, emotional and financial losses.
