Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers Fighting for Victims in Washington, DC
A car crash attorney can help you recover damages and serve justice
Drunk driving can injure and kill thousands of innocent people every year. Our Washington, DC car accident lawyers want to do their part to help combat this nationwide epidemic by holding people who drive under the influence of alcohol accountable for their actions.
Even though it's illegal in the District of Columbia and every state to drive with a BAC (blood alcohol concentration) at or above 0.08 percent, that doesn't stop millions of people from drinking and driving. Other measures, such as police sobriety checkpoints, ignition interlocks, zero tolerance laws, and media campaigns help, but the sad reality is someone dies in a drunk driving crash about every hour in the United States.
If you were injured in a drunk driving crash or a family member was killed by someone driving under the influence of alcohol, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact a Washington, DC car crash attorney from the Mike Slocumb Law Firm today for a free consultation.
