Drunk Driving & Car Accidents
One of the worst tragedies that can happen to a family member or a friend is to be injured by a drunk driver. The worst thing about this tragedy is it is easily preventable. Driving after too many drinks is simply a bad decision. Drunk drivers kill and injure hundreds of people causing car accidents in Minnesota each year. It is time to hold these drunk drivers accountable for the harms and losses they cause.

Drunk Driving Statistics
Drunk drivers are more of a danger to others than themselves. Making the choice to drive after too many drinks is clearly wrong. Sadly, Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and Driving Under the Influence (DUI) are both very common occurrences.
In 2006, there were 13,470 fatalities in crashes involving drunk drivers, composing 32% of the total traffic fatalities for that year. Still more people sustained serious injuries in DWI accidents. Our law firm has represented hundreds of people injured by drunk drivers. We were able to resolve this drunk driving case for a significant amount. The proceeds of the settlement were put in a trust to help pay for medical expenses and other needs of this seriously injured young girl.
Minnesota law takes drunk driving very seriously. People who are convicted of DWI face:
- heavy fines
- community service
- jail time
- suspension or loss of their driver’s licenses
Unfortunately, criminal penalties do little to help those who have already been injured by drunk drivers.
One way for drunk drivers’ victims to win fair compensation is by hiring TSR Injury Law to help. We will not only pursue the drunk driver, but will look for other avenues of recovery such as bars that over-serve patrons in violation of Minnesota Dram Shop laws.
