Seeking Justice For Victims Of Alcohol-Related Car Accidents
According to the Century Council, roughly four out of 100,000 people in the nation were killed as a result of drunk driving accidents in 2009. The number of fatalities due to alcohol-related car accidents seems to be trending down, but that makes no difference to the families of those who are killed by drunk or drugged drivers every year.
In North Carolina, there were 363 alcohol-impaired driving fatalities in 2009. At Christina Rivenbark & Associates, our goal is to hold drunk drivers accountable for the serious injuries and deaths that they cause.

Holding Drunk Drivers Accountable
In North Carolina, driving under the influence is considered to be negligent — and criminal — behavior. In other words, a driver arrested for DUI is arrested because he or she puts not only his or her own life in danger but the lives of others on the road.
When someone drives under the influence of drugs or alcohol and causes a serious car wreck, the injured person has a right to hold the drunk driver accountable for his or her actions. If you’ve been injured as the result of an alcohol-related car accident, you have a right to financial compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, medication costs, and pain and suffering.
No Fee Unless We Recover Compensation For You
Drunk driving can result in serious Level I or Level II criminal consequences. On the other hand, if you were injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver, the consequences for you in terms of a life-changing injury can be much worse than jail time for the drunk driver.
