Dorchester man pleads not guilty to drunk driving charges

Losing a loved one in a fatal car accident is a tragedy. When a driver is accused of causing the accident because of driving drunk, the tragedy often seems compounded. Drunk drivers are a hazard to other drivers and anyone else in the vicinity. If police suspect that a driver's intoxication caused a fatal accident, the driver can be charged with a crime, and the families of the victims have a good basis to seek compensation for wrongful death.

Everyone knows that pedestrian-car collisions can have very serious consequences. Drivers need to remember that they are operating heavy equipment that can cause severe injury or death if improperly handled. If drivers fail to exercise due caution in some way or another, such as by texting while driving, then the driver may be held liable for damages, including injury or wrongful death.

It should be common knowledge that drivers in Massachusetts and throughout the country are responsible for the safety of other motorists, and that includes passengers in a driver's own vehicle. When motorists fail to live up to that responsibility and their actions are deemed to be negligent, then people who were injured as a result of a car accident are entitled to compensation.
