Driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) are the terms that people commonly use when talking about alcohol-related driving behavior. While the criminal justice system in North Carolina is well-equipped to handle the criminal aspects of a drunk driving accident, it typically fails to address the heavy financial toll that a serious or fatal drunk driving accident places on innocent victims and surviving family members.
Drunk driving accidents leave thousands of people dead and injured in the United States each year. Most sensible people would agree that anyone who causes a car accident while driving drunk acted in a negligent, careless, or reckless manner, and should be held accountable for the physical, emotional and financial damages suffered by innocent victims.
