Whether you have a driving licence or not, most people are aware that to drive a vehicle safely requires the driver to be alert and sober. Drinking alcohol and being over the drink-drive limit can endanger passengers, pedestrians and other road users and it is a legal offence. Though there are many campaigns to highlight the dangers, there are still many car crashes due to drunk driving. If you were involved in an accident which was caused by a drunk driver, call our helpline for free initial advice.
Were you injured in drink-drive accident?
The drunk driver who caused your injuries may have already apologised and had their licence revoked but has justice really been served? An injury which resulted because of a dangerous driver who could have killed you and has left you with a painful reminder could be ordered to pay compensation for the ordeal.
To find out whether you have a case to be made, contact an advisor at Accident Advice Helpline. We have 16 years’ experience in helping victims of unfair accidents get the compensation they deserve.

If you get caught drink driving you could injure someone badly, or worse, you could kill someone. There were approximately 300 deaths a year caused by drunk driving in 2015. If you are caught by police as being over the legal drink-drive limit you could face imprisonment, a driving ban and you could be ordered to pay a large fine.
