Bourbon bars, Craft breweries and Wine bars are all the rage for young and old in today’s society. In attempting to find the elusive aged scotch or perfect red wine, we forget the effect these alcoholic products have on our brain, ability to function and most importantly our ability to make smart and safe choices. More often than not, we are not even aware of how intoxicated we have become. This is particularly dangerous when we are out of the house and being served alcohol at a restaurant or bar. Once the drunk person is allowed to drive that car becomes a massive weapon leaving the possibility of destruction to all in its wake.
Imagine you are out with your 20 year old son and daughter and a drunk driver hits you, killing your child. You witness this senseless atrocity; lives are ruined and changed forever, including the life of the drunk driver. Unfortunately the lawyers at Javerbaum Wurgaft are representing a family dealing with this very issue.
There are so many simple solutions to this epidemic. When going out for “a drink” take a cab, have a person designated as a driver, or simply walk. Simple planning in the beginning of the evening can save a life, maybe yours. Eric Kahn, partner at Javerbaum Wurgaft has stated “I have seen first hand the devastation that can be caused by someone who drives a car while impaired. I am currently representing a woman who was involved in a high speed, head-on collision with a drunk driver, whose life has been catastrophically altered as a result of the injuries she sustained in the accident. After spending over 3 months in the hospital following the accident, breaking too many bones to count and undergoing multiple surgical procedures, my client’s life and the life of her husband and children, will never be the same”
