Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “Drunk driving accidents are often very serious, as a drunk person is not in control of their mental faculties, certainly cannot drive safely and often do not even know they were responsible for a crash. If you have been involved in an accident caused by a driver that was impaired behind the wheel, please make sure you seek the council of an experienced accident attorney.”
