Alcohol-Impaired Driving Crashes can be Fatal
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a driver is considered alcohol-impaired when his or her blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is .08 grams per deciliter (g/dL) or higher. Therefore, if there is a fatal car crash where the driver had a BAC of .08 g/dL or higher, that car crash is classified as an alcohol-impaired-driving crash. Furthermore, the fatalities which occur in those alcohol-impaired driving crashes are considered to be alcohol-impaired-driving fatalities.

You could be getting breakfast, lunch or dinner, dropping the kids in school. Suddenly, someone hits your vehicle, or worse still, you hit another vehicle. If this happens, what should you do?
Victims of Catastrophic Car Accidents May Suffer Serious Injuries, Scars and Permanent Disfigurement
Automobile Crashes may involve passenger vehicles, commercial trucks, 18 wheelers, motorbikes, bicycles and even pedestrians. The impact at the time of the crash will depend on how severe the accident is. Some are minor fender benders, with some bruises, whilst some may be catastrophic crashes, leaving the victim with serious injuries and sometimes, permanent disfigurement.
Most people will remember exactly what happened at the time of the crash. Some may have flashbacks, even after the crash. A lot of people suffer emotional damage as they are afraid to travel on roads that they had previously traveled in the past.
