How common are car accidents that are caused by drunk drivers?

Of all the car accidents that occur on the roadways in America, many people would probably expect that there are a wide variety of reasons for these crashes. In some, distracted driving is the cause, as more and more drivers are using their cellphones or other electronic devices while driving. In others, a simple lack of attention - even momentarily - can cause a "fender-bender." But, how common are car accidents that are caused by drunk drivers?

Types of damages available in a personal injury case

If you become injured due to someone else's negligence, Minnesota law allows you to file a lawsuit to recover several types of damages. While the particular process of your case may depend on the type of accident involved, the general principles remain the same. Minnesota law also allows you to recover even if the accident was partially your fault.

Knowing what's at stake in a Minnesota car accident

Car accidents happen every day in Minnesota, and while many are simple "fender-benders" others are much more serious. A serious car accident can leave victims with serious injuries, resulting in the need for extensive medical care, which can be quite costly. Each car accident will have unique factors to consider. There's a lot at stake in the aftermath of a car accident in Minnesota.

The term 'reasonableness' and slip-and-fall accidents

Slip and fall accidents are very common in Minnesota, especially in the winter months. However, these types of accidents can occur year-round and, for the most part, the victims who are injured in slip and fall accidents may have an opportunity to attempt to recover financial compensation from the property owner where the accident occurred. In such a lawsuit, the case may turn on the term "reasonableness."

Texting and driving may be behind increase in accident deaths

Minnesota residents may be interested to hear that for the last couple of decades, the statistics have shown that each year fewer people were being injured or killed in car crashes in the United States. It can be hard to know where to attribute credit for such encouraging statistics. It could be improved safety features in vehicles, public awareness campaigns to combat drunk driving or more restrictive licensing laws in many states. Unfortunately, however, the trend is beginning to reverse itself.

While we've all seen advertising campaigns encouraging people against the use of cell phones while driving, and while the dangers of driving while intoxicated are also well-known, that does not stop drivers from engaging in these actions on an all-too-regular basis. Unfortunately, one bad decision by a driver can result in a devastating accident.
