About three in every 10 Americans will be involved in an alcohol-related crash at some time in their lives. In 2004 there were 16,694 fatalities in alcohol-related crashes – an average of one alcohol-related death every 31 minutes (statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s 2004 Traffic Safety Fact Sheet). An estimated 39 percent of fatal motor vehicle accidents were alcohol-related. Our auto accident lawyers in Seattle have years of trial experience.

Tragically, in many cases of drunk driving, another driver, passenger, or pedestrian suffers a brain or spinal cord injury or is even killed as a result of the accident. If the victim is deceased, a family member may be entitled to claim for wrongful death, depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident. If you are the family member of someone who passed away as the result of a drunk driver, you should seek legal assistance from our auto accident lawyers in Seattle as soon as possible. Statutes of limitation may apply, which can affect your eligibility to claim.
Despite increased penalties and fines for offenders, drunk driving accidents are on the rise again after a slight decline in the early 1990s. In 2002, 159 million drunk driving accidents were reported in the United States and, of these, approximately 20,000 accidents resulted in death. It is predicted that approximately 30 percent of Americans can expect to be involved in a drunk driving accident in their lifetime. These are shocking statistics considering these accidents are completely preventable and unnecessary. If you live in Seattle and are a victim of a drunk driver accident, our attorneys can help you.
