Accidents caused by drunk drivers often result in serious injuries. Since drunk drivers are slow to apply the brakes or don’t react at all, they often hit the other car at a high rate of speed. In an instant, a bad decision can result in serious injuries, even a wrongful death. If you or a loved one has been injured by a drunk driver, a personal injury lawyer can get you the compensation you deserve.
Perhaps the most frustrating part of drunk driving accidents is that they are entirely preventable. The decision to drink and drive is made before a person leaves the house – if you drive to a bar or party where you know you’ll be drinking, you are setting yourself (and other innocent drivers) up for failure. The best way to prevent drunk driving is to leave your car at home. This allows you to have a good time while keeping everyone safe.
And today, it’s never been easier to find a ride. Apps like Uber and Lyft make it incredibly easy to call a cab, no matter where you are in the Detroit area. The ride is generally very affordable and very convenient. It’s certainly cheaper than causing an accident because you are impaired behind the wheel. Traditional taxi services have also greatly increased their customer service, making this a pleasant option as well. Instead of driving to the bar, take a taxi there to help guarantee you won’t be tempted to drive drunk.
