Injuries and Vehicle Accidents

Some car accidents can cause incapacitating injuries or even fatalities. The actions of drunk drivers put everyone else on the road around them at risk. These individuals are acting recklessly and criminally and putting the lives of others in danger. Drinking and driving can have fatal consequences.

Thompson’s actions put other people at risk and ended up causing another person’s death. This accident shows how serious drunk driving can be. We send our sympathies to the family and friends of the victim. This was a tragedy, and it could have been prevented. We are sorry to hear of this horrible incident occurring. When these tragedies occur, families are left grieving and trying to figure out how to cope with the loss of their loved one. While this is an extremely difficult time, families can also seek to recover assistance so they can begin to grieve the loss and not deal with the stress of paying for some of the impacts.

We know how serious the impacts of some of these accidents can be, and we wish that these tragic accidents did not happen. As we are also involved members of the community, we want our roads to be safe from drunk driving. At the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Glassman, we know that these accidents sometimes happen and leave victims and families suffering, so we are dedicated to helping victims and their families receive help and assistance.
