The Pennsylvania personal injury lawyers of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C., are proud to announce the launch of a new Facebook campaign designed to generate awareness of the dangers of drunk driving.

The campaign features a video entitled “There are no Extra Lives When You Drink and Drive” and sobering statistics about the danger driving while intoxicated poses to all of us on a daily basis.
Drunk driving is one of the most significant injury concerns in the United States. According to research presented by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) as many as 1 in 3 Americans will be involved in a drunk driving accident at some point in their lifetime. Annually, drunk driving accidents claim more than 10,000 lives. Fortunately, law enforcement policies and efforts to increase the awareness of the dangers associated with this irresponsible type of behavior have had a significant effect on the rate of drunk driving fatalities, which have decreased by 44% since 1991. However, more effort is needed to continue combating this public danger.
Victims of drunk driving accidents may suffer catastrophic injuries, emotional trauma, and disfigurement, not to mention costly medical bills and income lost from time spent recovering. For this reason, drunk driving accident victims are entitled to pursue financial compensation from the individual responsible for their damages. The Philadelphia personal injury attorneys of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C., are prepared to represent those who have suffered the consequences of a drunk driver’s irresponsible decisions.
