Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII)

Impaired driving injures and kills thousands of people every year. Injuries due to automobile accidents may involve injuries like bruises and broken bones but can also suddenly and violently change lives. Survivors of automobile accidents may incur severe and irreversible trauma to their bodies including injuries to the brain or spinal cord, or serious burn injuries. Fatal accidents leave parents, children, siblings and friends with tremendous loss.

If you are the victim of, or are greiving the loss of a loved one due to a DUII-related accident there are support services that can help. Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) offers a wide selection of resources for crash victims covering grief and healing, coping with serious injury, the criminal and civil court system, and other topics of interest.

MADD also offers a 24-hour help line at 1-877-MADD-HELP where you can get connected with local victims’ services and support.
