Aggressive Southern California DUI Accident Injuries Attorneys
For the last decade, both felony and misdemeanor DUI arrests have been on the rise in California. According to the California Department of Motor Vehicles, the number of people injured and killed in alcohol-related injuries has risen steadily since 1997. In 2007, 1,489 people were killed in DUI accidents, and 30,783 suffered injuries serious enough to warrant treatment in a hospital emergency room. Perhaps most egregious of all is the fact that every one of these deaths and injuries could have been avoided if the drunk driver had chosen responsibility over negligence. Sadly, many drivers knowingly get behind the wheel after they’ve had too much to drink and imperil the lives of other drivers and their passengers. If you have been involved in an accident caused by a drunk driver and sustained injury, Southern California DUI accident injuries lawyer Samer Habbas may be able to help.
Experienced Southern California DUI Accident Injuries Lawyers Helping Victims and Their Families
In 2007, 362,859 Californians had their driver’s licenses either suspended or revoked for drunk driving. If that isn’t sobering enough, consider that 247,568 had their licenses revoked or suspended just two year earlier in 2005. A big part of that increase is tougher laws and penalties for drunk drivers. Despite these tougher laws and penalties, massive driver education campaigns about the dangers and consequences of drinking and driving, and strong public disapproval, more and more drivers are driving drunk in California.
At any time on California streets and highways, three percent of drivers are legally drunk or have blood-alcohol concentrations of 0.08 percent or greater. On weekend evenings, the percentage of legally drunk drivers on the road jumps to eight percent, and the number of drivers who have had at least one drink and then gotten behind the wheel is around 17 percent.
