Alcohol-related crashes kill thousands of people each year in the US and injure hundreds of thousands more. In Nebraska, the Department of Transportation shows some startling statistics when it comes to drunk driving accidents.
There were 1,604 total alcohol-involved crashes in Nebraska during the latest reporting year. Out of those incidents, there were 54 fatalities and 682 injuries. In this state, a total of 32.8% of all fatal traffic crashes involved drunk driving incidents.
Those who survive crashes involving drunk drivers often sustain serious injuries, including the following:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken or dislocated bones
- Loss of or damage to bodily organs
- Dismemberment or amputation
- Significant disfigurement
These injuries often lead to major medical bills for victims. In this state, the impaired driver can be held accountable for the injuries and damages they cause. Nebraska law also makes it possible to hold retailers who sell alcohol to a minor who then causes someone else harm due to drunk driving.
