Statistically speaking, three out of every ten Chicagoans will be involved in a drunk driving accident at some point in their lives. Sadly, for many of these victims, the injuries sustained in these car accidents will prove catastrophic or even fatal. In fact, despite a small drop in drunk driving-related deaths in recent years, 278 people were killed in these accidents in Illinois in 2011, accounting for 30 percent of our state’s total fatal auto accidents.
