Impaired/Drunk Driving Lawyers
Sadly, every day Canadians are injured, disabled, or killed because someone decided to get behind the wheel of a vehicle or boat while impaired by alcohol, drugs, or other influences. The damages and injuries caused by impaired driving can be catastrophic leading to sudden medical expenses, emotional stress, and financial burdens.
Alcohol and drugs dull a driverâ€™s ability to respond and impairs their awareness and often leads to reckless driving and excessive speeding. Impaired drivers have diminished capacity to anticipate or prevent accidents, or foresee the outcome of their actions. Unfortunately, their choices have life-long consequences for those injured in an accident.
Broken bones, brain injuries and concussions, spinal cord injuries, severe wounds, and emotional trauma are often the sad results of anotherâ€™s poor choice to drive while impaired and families are left broken and grieving.
