After a Birmingham couple was seriously injured in a head-on collision with a drunk driver, the experienced attorneys at Cory Watson secured $1.4 million on their behalf.
Our clients, a local husband and wife, saw this drunk driver coming toward them on the road. They quickly moved out of the way, off the road and onto the shoulder to avoid being hit by the swerving driver. Unfortunately, the drunk driver crossed two lanes of traffic and struck them against the guardrail, hitting their vehicle head-on.
The husband and wife both sustained serious injuries, including lacerations and broken bones that took months of treatment in order to properly heal. Their car was also totaled in the wreck.
DRUNK OR DISTRACTED DRIVING IS DANGEROUS
This case serves as a reminder of the importance of driving defensively. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 28 people die every day in the United States from car accidents involving a drunk driver. This is one death every 51 minutes. Be mindful of the fact that no matter how safely you may drive, there are others on the road who are intoxicated, inattentive or distracted by their cell phone.
