DuPage County personal injury lawyers, drunk driving, DUI accidents, drunk driving laws, Illinois DUIDespite advances in car technology and features, almost nothing can keep up with the drivers who get behind the wheel of a car in an impaired state. Drunk drivers continue to be a menace on the roads, putting the lives of innocent people at risk.

The carelessness and recklessness associated with a drunk driver can rip families apart and deprive victims of their quality of life—or even their life if an accident is fatal. In 2014, 38,822 drivers were arrested for driving under the influence in Illinois.

If your loved one was killed by a drunk driver, then that driver should be held accountable for getting behind the wheel drunk, and should provide compensation for your loss. Seek the services of a compassionate drunk driving accident attorney to help recover for your losses.

holiday drinking, DuPage County personal injury lawyerThe holiday season is in full swing and the New Year is almost upon us. While invitations for get-togethers and celebrations are flowing, soon will be the drinks. From eggnog to top shelf spirits, enjoying alcohol responsibly is important for your safety and for those around you. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that 47 percent of Illinois motor vehicle fatalities involve alcohol.

Even though it is easier than ever to hire a designated driver, rideshare, or taxi cab, people still decide to get behind the wheel after they have been drinking. This puts their lives, as well as innocent people around them, at risk of injury or death.

If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident where drunk driving is suspected on the part of the other driver, retaining the services of an experienced personal injury attorney is advisable. A legal team can support you, and has the resources and tools to investigate fully and seek the best result for you. If you received serious injuries, medical care can be costly and lengthy and the mental anguish can linger for years to come.

DuPage County car accident attorneys, intoxicated driverIt is hard to not feel outraged when you spot an intoxicated driver, especially considering how many lives the driver is putting at risk. You may become so irritated, in fact, that you attempt to stop him or her from driving, and thereby keep the driver from doing harm to others. Unfortunately, this Good Samaritan kind of act could actually be just as dangerous. Learn how to appropriately handle an intoxicated driver, and what your options are, should you or someone you love encounter one.

Never Try to Stop an Intoxicated Driver

While it might seem like the right thing to do in the heat of the moment, you should never attempt to stop an intoxicated driver yourself. At best, the actions of an intoxicated driver are unpredictable, and by trying to shadow the driver, pull up next to him or her, or otherwise interact with the driver can increase your risk of an accident. Moreover, these actions can also put those around you at an increased risk for an accident, injury, or death. Instead, if you spot an intoxicated driver, take down his or her license plate number and call the authorities.

DUI-key-car-glass-suspension-license.jpgIf you feel like DUI accidents make headline news entirely too often, then you are not alone. Every two hours, three lives are lost because of drunk driving in America. Yet the problem persists. Lax laws regarding license suspension and revocation are at least partially to blame, but understanding the DUI problem in America is not quite that simple. There are other factors at play - some of which may not be known or understood at this point in time. But one thing is clear: something must be done to ensure victims receive the justice they deserve.

Protecting Yourself from a DUI Accident

While it is sad that victims must be the ones to take preventative measures to avoid a drunk driving accident, the pervasiveness of DUI accidents make avoidance precautions necessary. Reduce your risk of becoming a DUI crash victim by:
