The state of Wisconsin has one of the highest rates of drunk driving arrests in all fifty states, and in a 2009 study, over 26% of Wisconsin drivers admitted to operating a vehicle under the influence in the previous year. This problem is more than simply a statistic, however, as drunk drivers endanger the safety of all others on or near the roadway when they get behind the wheel while impaired. Accidents caused by drunk drivers are too common, and they are likely to result in serious injuries.

When someone is operating a vehicle under the influence, they are susceptible to a number of cognitive and physical difficulties that make it impossible for them to drive safely. The resulting collisions are often severe, and the injuries inflicted are usually painful, costly, and in some cases, life-altering. The following are representative examples of the sorts of injuries that one might sustain in an OWI accident:
In addition to these injuries, many people experience symptoms of Post-traumatic stress disorder after a severe accident, which can have lingering negative effects on seemingly unrelated parts of one’s life.
