Drunk Driving Accidents
Maryland drunk driving accidents take the lives of dozens upon dozens of innocent people in this state every year. Many of those victims were individuals not unlike you and me; they were people with a lifetime of experiences ahead of them; mothers and fathers, sister and brothers, none of whom deserved to die at the hands of a thoughtless and reckless drunk driver. As experienced personal injury attorneys, the legal team at Lebowitz & Mzhen, LLC, knows that most serious auto and trucking-related collisions could likely have been prevented; drunken driving wrecks come under this heading.
We won’t mince words here. There is absolutely no reasonable excuse for getting behind the wheel of a 3,000-pound projectile after one has been drinking alcohol. Anyone who decides to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of beer, wine or hard liquor is quite simply an accident looking for a place to happen. As Maryland auto injury and commercial trucking accident lawyers, we have seen the results of too many drunken driving wrecks to give any credence to those who claim they were not negligent by causing a serious car collision while impaired.
As Baltimore personal injury attorneys, we at the law offices of Lebowitz & Mzhen fully sympathize with victims of drunk driving accidents; though we hesitate even to categorize these types of potentially fatal events as “accidents.” Quite frankly, any driver that causes a traffic wreck while impaired by alcohol or drugs has made a serious error in judgment and should be held responsible for the negligent operation of their motor vehicle.
There is no doubt in our minds that any individual who drinks to excess and subsequently slides behind the wheel of a car, truck or SUV surely is demonstrating negligent behavior, if not disdain for the law. And this doesn’t even address the extreme lack of consideration for the safety of themselves, their passengers and any other people they may encounter on the roadway. Causing a traffic collision while drunk behind the wheel is inexcusable in our estimation.
Drunk drivers put the driving public at risk of injury or death every day. Despite public service messages warning drivers to avoid consuming alcohol prior to operating a motor vehicle, untold numbers of motorists undertake this risky behavior on a daily basis all across the United States. The result of this irresponsible activity is the death of about 10,000 innocent people each year, with many more individuals severely injured or permanently disabled and unable to enjoy what many of us would consider a normal life.
As Maryland personal injury attorneys, Lebowitz & Mzhen represents innocent victims of auto, truck and motorcycle accidents all across the state and in cities such as Annapolis, Gaithersburg, Frederick and Washington, D.C. Our law firm has the skills and experience to representing individuals who have been hurt by a drunk driver, whether riding in a private car, a city bus or standing on a city sidewalk. Even though drunk driving appears to have become a vilified activity in this country, one can never assume that a jury will side with you and not the drunk driver.
As experienced trial attorneys working in the auto injury field, we understand that insurance company lawyers will try every legal maneuver to keep any evidence of their client's drinking and driving out of court. Our goal in personal injury cases involving a traffic accident caused by an intoxicated driver is to bring to the court’s attention every relevant piece of information so that the plaintiff receives the justice he or she rightly deserves.
Our roadways are already dangerous enough without adding those negligent motorists who think nothing of operating a car, truck or motorcycle while under the influence of alcohol, prescription drugs or illegal substances. Because any traffic collision has the potential to cause serious or permanent injury and sometimes even death, the lawyers at Lebowitz & Mzhen take very seriously their job of helping the victims of DWI- or DUI-related injury accidents.
Should you or a loved one be hurt or seriously injured due to the negligent actions of a drunken driver, distracted motorist or reckless individual, we recommend that you contact a qualified legal professional to discuss your options. We are always ready to assist families of victims who have been killed by another person who was impaired by alcohol or a controlled substance while operating a motor vehicle.
