Alcohol-related motor vehicle accidents account for a staggering number of injuries and deaths on Nevada roadways each year. Law enforcement records show that alcohol is a contributing factor in 7 percent of all injury-related crashes and almost 22 percent of all auto accident fatalities.
Drunk driving is not an accident. When drivers choose to get behind the wheel after drinking they are making a choice to put everyone on the road in serous danger. In Nevada, those injured or the loved ones of those killed by a drunk driver have the right to pursue punitive damages in addition to the damages for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and grief and sorrow. At 9th Island Injury Lawyers we aggressively pursue claims against drunk drivers.
