Boston Drunk Driving Accident Victim Lawyer

At the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Glassman, each attorney and member of our legal team are dedicated to aggressively representing clients who have been injured or killed in Boston drunk driving accidents.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving has called it the most frequently committed violent crime in America. Regardless of what you call it, drunk driving is responsible for one-third of all fatal accidents in the United States.

DUI Accidents in Massachusetts

  • Somewhere in the United States, someone is killed in a drunk driving accident every 53 minutes.
  • Four-times more drivers are legally drunk at night than during the day.
  • Drivers ages 21 to 24 were most likely to be intoxicated when involved in a fatal accident.
  • Drivers involved in a fatal accident with a blood-alcohol level of .08 or higher were eight-times more likely to have a prior conviction for drunk driving.

Nationwide, 10,874 drivers were killed in accidents involving drunk drivers in 2017, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stats found here. There were 220 children 14 years of age and younger who died because of impaired drivers. An average of 150 people die each year in Massachusetts car accidents involving drunk drivers. 

The number of alcohol-related fatalities in Massachusetts peaked in 1982 when 659 motorists were killed in accidents with drivers who tested positive for alcohol consumption.

Despite the increased enforcement, nobody is immune – four Massachusetts state troopers were hit by drunk drivers in less than a month in 2010, prompting authorities to increase the efforts aimed at getting drunks off the road.
