Because they have defended hundreds of families impacted by drunk driving or drugged driving crashes, the attorneys at the Law Offices of William K. Berenson are intimately familiar with the terrible impacts that drunk driving can have on victims and their families.
“This is infuriating,” says Bill Berenson, qualified personal injury attorney. “How is it that this keeps happening? And how can we put an end to the trend of constant slaughter on our highways? In his statement, Berenson refers to the most recent murder of two teenage sisters from Plano by a three-time DWI offender.
According to attorney Berenson, Americans make 233 billion car journeys annually. Of those, around one out of every 2000 journeys is made by someone who is drunk behind the wheel. Yet, the use of alcohol while driving is a factor in approximately one out of every three road fatalities. Because of this, Berenson and his legal team think that we need to enhance the financing for the justice and law enforcement sectors.
When it comes to the number of drunk driving cases, Texas is among the worst states in the US. The word needs to be spread, says Berenson. “For this reason, you should support Moms Against Drunk Driving and work to persuade our state officials to adopt stricter regulations. Even with drivers, our highways are way too unsafe.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving is a proud sponsor of The Berenson Law Offices. Bill Berenson is an enthusiastic participant in the Walk Like MADD and the Salute Our Heroes Luncheon, working to raise funds for the victims of this terrible crime as well as to promote awareness of the risks associated with drunk driving.
