At times, a drunk driving accident can result in death. The families of the victims are usually the ones that have to deal with the aftermath of the accident because the actual victim is too incapacitated to do so. The legal steps taken after an accident of this type can be complex and confusing because a criminal suit as well as a civil suit can arise out of a drunk driving accident.
Victims of drunk drivers are protected by the legal system. These victims may have a right to recovery when injured.
Despite constant campaigns about the dangers of drunk driving here in Pottsville, the sad reality is that people still take to the roads daily when, by law, they should not. Doing so unfairly puts others in dangers, and all too often, results in an accident with unfortunate consequences.
