Louisiana Drunk Driving Attorneys

Advocating for Victims of Drunk Driving in Louisiana

Our state’s drunk driving statistics are a sobering reminder of how many lives are destroyed by reckless, negligent motorists. Between 2009 and 2018, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) revealed that 2,349 people were killed in the state of Louisiana in accidents caused by alcohol consumption. This means that 4.6 people died in drunk driving incidents for every 100,000 people in the state of Louisiana, much higher than the national rate of 3.2 deaths per 100,000 people.

Given the prevalence of drunk driving on our roads, those who are injured or killed by drunk drivers need an advocate. Victims of drunk driving accidents experience serious injuries, often costing people their careers, mobility, and future. As Louisiana drunk driving injury lawyers, it’s our job to make sure the victims of drunk drivers get everything they need to rebuild their lives, including everything from lost wages and medical bills to loss of enjoyment or companionship.

The Dangers of Drunk Driving

Most do not need to be convinced of the problems of drunk driving. However, national data regarding drunk driving reveals the dangers that Americans face each day on the road.

The CDC released the following information regarding drunk driving from 2020:

  • 11,654 people lost their lives in drunk driving accidents
  • Police made over 1 million arrests for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Alcohol-impaired drivers got behind the wheel 127 million times
  • 1 in 5 traffic deaths involving children ages 0–14 were caused by drunk driving

It’s clear that the number of times people drive drunk is far higher than the number of times they get caught. The only way to get justice, in many cases, is by pursuing an negligent driver in civil court for the harm they caused. By suing a drunk driver for negligence, plaintiffs affirm that the damage done to innocent individuals is unacceptable. No one should be forced to endure crushing debt and a diminished life because of the reckless actions of a drunk driver.
