Statistics show that alcohol is involved in anywhere from 30% to 50% of all traumatic injuries in the United States. In Louisiana, drunk driving laws allow for prosecution for DWI of persons who are either under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and who are driving with a blood alcohol content of .08% or more. When alcohol use causes or contributes to an automobile or other accident which injures another, the victim or his survivors in a wrongful death action may recover punitive damages designed to punish the wrongdoer.
