Meet Our Spring 2018 Winner
In the United States an average of 28 people die every day in car crashes involving alcohol impaired people behind the wheel. At the end of the year, the financial cost of vehicular caused accidents will exceed over 44 billion. It is easy to see the financial and economic deficiencies caused by these accidents, but you might not necessarily be able to see the physical, psychological, and emotional damage victims have to deal with.
Many people would say that a person who survives a car crash caused by a drunk driver is very lucky. However, whether or not the survivor actually had good fortune for surviving depends on the extent of the injuries he or she suffered. The victim may only receive minor lacerations or walk away with small bruises… many however aren’t as fortunate.
