Drunk Drivers Present a Danger to Others Sharing the Roadway

A drunk driver on the road is a big challenge to other motorists. This is because an inebriated driver has problems tracking with their eyes, speeds up and then slows down, weaves out of their lane and has poor reflexes. Stopping in an emergency isn’t an option for them many times, and a drunk driver is most likely of all motorists to enter a highway going in the wrong direction. Injuries occurring in an accident involving DUI are often serious or fatal. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, 28 people a day die in a collision that involves a drunk driver.

Head and Traumatic Brain Injuries

Head injuries are common in any type of accident. However, when a head-on collision occurs due to a drunk driver, it can be even more serious. A traumatic brain injury or other head trauma can often require long hospitalization and leave the injured party with a permanent disability. Even many of those who slowly recover face cognitive problems and might be unable to work in the future.

Broken Bones

While some broken bones that occur in a crash involving a drunk driver are simple and heal within several months, that isn’t always the case. In a high-impact collision, multiple bone fractures can occur as well as crush injuries that can lead to amputation. 

Spinal Trauma

Serious back injuries and spinal cord trauma such as a slipped or herniated disc can occur in a collision caused by a drunk driver. In more extreme injuries, permanent or partial paralysis can happen. The extent of the paralysis depends on the location of the break in the spinal column but can cause a lack of function and feeling from the waist down or the neck down. These types of injuries often result in permanent disabilities.
