As responsible members of our community, the lawyers at Phillips Law Group have gathered 10 facts about driving under the influence in order to demonstrate how prevalent these types of offenses truly are, and how devastating they may be.
10 facts about driving under the influence include:
- 211 children suffered fatalities from drunk drivers in 2010. Of these children, 62 percent were riding with a drunk driver
- An average of 27 people lose their live every day as a result of drunk drivers
- Between 50 and 75 percent of individuals that had their licenses revoked due to drunk driving are now illegally driving without a license
- Children who get involved with alcohol at a young age are seven times more likely to become involved in an alcohol related crash during their lifetime
- Coffee, exercise, and a cold shower will not make a person more sober. This is a common misconception, as only time will.
- Every 90 seconds a person is injured by a drunk driver
- One third of teenage traffic collision deaths involved alcohol or other substances
- Since 1980, the fatality rate of drunk driving has been cut in half
- The average drunk driver will drive 80 times under the influence before their first arrest
- There is a No Tolerance policy for drivers under the age of 21 caught with any alcohol in their system. These individuals may be fined, lose their license, or go to jail if they are caught.
Our car accident attorneys recommend no individual driver under the influence, instead designate a sober driver or find an alternate form of transportation. This will help you avoid the strict penalties associated with drunk driving and it could save your life, along with others on our roadways.

If you are in need of legal support for a motor vehicle collision of any kind, I highly recommend going to Phillips Law Group Injury Lawyers. Sean Davis has exemplary knowledge and experience in this field, compassion for his clients, and excellent judgment and communication skills.
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group

Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place.
