Maine Drunk Driving Lawyer

June 8, 2011

July 4th should be a time of year for patriotism, fireworks, parades and reflection on what it means to be American. Independence Day ought not to be a time of year where you or loved ones have to seek counsel with a Maine injury lawyer. Unfortunately, the July 4th weekend is becoming notorious for being a time in the calendar when there is a measurable spike in incidents of drunk driving. As Independence Day approaches it has become necessary to remind citizens of the great state of Maine to drink and drive responsibly. Plan ahead, have a designated driver, take a cab instead of driving, there are so many alternatives to being a drunk driver. Drunk driving has been and continues to be responsible for far too many injuries and deaths in this state.

In the United States, each year law enforcement agencies arrest over a million people for driving under the influence of alcohol. Each year over two hundred thousand people are injured in alcohol related accidents and over fifteen thousand people die in alcohol related collisions. In Maine, thousands of people are arrested each year by law enforcement agencies and multiple people die because of the impaired and irresponsible decision making of drunk drivers. Not to mention the millions of dollars in damage done to property and infrastructure that occurs annually as a result of drunk driving.

Victims of accidents caused by drunk driving often have to make major adjustments to their lives as a result of the injuries they experience. Changes have to be made to their daily patterns, and recovery can take a long time and may not be possible in some severe cases. Victims of severe accidents caused by drunk driving have to find ways to pay for expensive treatment and rehabilitation processes. They must overcome the loss of present and future earnings. They require counseling and strong support from family to deal with the emotional distress caused by the ordeal. That is why it is our hope that by increasing public awareness about the consequences of drunk driving, through articles like this one, we can help to reduce the occurrence of avoidable car accidents on July 4th and for the entire year.

It is regrettable that way too many people chose to ignore the sensible advice of “do not drink and drive”. If you or a loved one fall victim to an accident caused by someone drunk driving then it is imperative that you quickly contact a Maine injury lawyer. You must act quick because there are statute of limitations that apply restricting the time within which you can take legal action. You should rely upon an experienced Maine injury lawyer to assist you in gaining legal compensations for injuries that you have suffered because of the careless acts of a drunk driver.  Contact Marchese Injury Law.
