Drunk drivers are still on the roads in Kansas. If you suffered injuries in a crash caused by a reckless impaired driver, it is important to stand up for your rights. Contact a Kansas car accident attorney for the help you need.
The latest figures from the Kansas Highway Patrol indicate that about 16,000 people die due to drunk driving crashes each year across the United States.
