Unfortunately, Wisconsin has the highest rate of drunken driving in the nation. More than 26 percent of Wisconsin adults who were surveyed admitted that they had driven under the influence of alcohol in the previous year, according to a nationwide study by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Drunk Drivers Injure and Kill Wisconsin Drivers
There were more than 44,000 convictions for drunk driving offenses in Wisconsin last year. Alcohol-related crashes killed 238 people in Wisconsin and injured nearly 4,000 in 2011. Statistics show that almost 45 percent of all fatal traffic crashes in Wisconsin are alcohol-related. We go the extra mile to hold these drunks responsible for their actions. Whether driving a car, truck, motorcycle or boat, no one is allowed to endanger others by drinking and driving. We don't represent and protect drunks; we sue them.
We believe drunk drivers need to be held accountable for their actions. Too often, the law protects drunk drivers and they get off on technicalities. We think that is wrong. We strongly believe drunk drivers should be pursued aggressively for the harm they cause, regardless of their level of insurance or assets. In cases where the drunk driver is a minor, or an obviously intoxicated patron at a bar or restaurant, the person or entity supplying the alcohol should be pursued equally and aggressively. If an irresponsible adult facilitates drunk driving of minors, then in certain situations they can and should be held accountable to the victims of their carelessness and recklessness.
We have recovered millions of dollars in judgments and settlements in cases against drunk and impaired drivers.
