Charlotte Drunk Driving Accident Attorney
MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) was formed in 1980 by Candace Lightner after
her 13 year old daughter was struck and killed by a drunk driver.
inception, MADD was largely responsible for the adoption of the federal National
Minimum Drinking Age Act that withheld federal highway money from states who
did not raise the drinking age to 21, and was greatly involved in getting the
legal limit for blood alcohol concentration reduced from .10 to .08.
The funds raised by MADD are used in programs to assist the families of drunk
driving victims to deal with the loss of their loved one, including assistance
during the legal process.
MADD is visible and involved with local and state
legislators, encouraging the adoption of stricter drunk driving laws.
is also responsible for bringing educational programs to prevent underage
drinking to students from elementary school up through college.
According to the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), of
the 32,367 people who were killed in car accidents in the United States in
2011, 66% had blood alcohol concentrations of .08% or higher, and 16% were
passengers of the drunk driver.
A survey conducted by NHTSA found that most drivers claim to take action to
avoid driving impaired, but a roadside survey found 16% of tested designated
drivers to have at least some alcohol in their blood, and 2% of designated
drivers were found to be above the legal limit.
This is not surprising
considering that NHTSA also reports that 12% of designated drivers make
the decision to be the designated driver until after they have already had a drink.
When someone is injured in an accident due to the negligence of a drunk
driver, criminal penalties are often not enough.
An experienced DUI
accident attorney can help you recover money damages for medical bills,
lost wages, future medical bills, and your pain and suffering.
when the at-fault driver is also found to have been driving under the
influence, additional damages, called punitive damages, may be awarded.
some cases, the person who served the drunk driver can also be held accountable.
While you cannot predict whether you are hit by a drunk driver, there are some steps you can take to protect yourself:
• Before your groups starts drinking, select a designated driver.
• If a designated driver is not available, call a cab or make arrangements to spend the night where you are.
• Monitor your designated driver.
Don't get in a car with someone who has been drinking, and don't let your friends drive after drinking.
• Wear your seatbelt.
They really do save lives.
