The California personal injury law firm, Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys, has recently announced that they will be a corporate patron and water sponsor for 2010 Walk Like MADD. The event will take place on Saturday, May 8 in Huntington Beach, California and is designed to support Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) in their programs for victims of drunk driving and the prevention of drunk driving.
Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys staff are currently involved in raising money for the event and will participate in the 5K walk to provide water for participants. The firm’s involvement also looks to educate people about their legal rights as victims of drunk driving accidents.
“We’re proud to be a sponsor of such an important event and a supporter of MADD, an organization that works tirelessly to prevent drunk driving and underage drinking,” said John Bisnar, founder of Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys. “The statistics involving drunk driving crashes are staggering. That’s why we felt it was so important to get involved with the Walk Like MADD 2010 event, to give something back to our community and to educate victims of drunk driving crashes, to help them seek justice against offenders and to recover monetary damages for injuries and wrongful death.”
MADD provides education and awareness to the public about drinking and driving, and also works to pass and enforce anti-drunk driving legislation. They also help families of victims and survivors through the devastating aftermath of drunk-driving incidents.
According to MADD and CDC statistics, about 11,773 people died in alcohol-related traffic accidents in 2008. It is also predicted that around 3 of every 10 Americans will be involved in an alcohol-related traffic collision in their lives. These types of crashes cost around $51 billion every year. MADD’s efforts are particularly important since the number of hit-and-run offenses have risen sharply in recent years. It is likely that hit-and-runs are occurring more often as people have been drinking-and-driving, then fleeing the scene to avoid penalty.
Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys has also recently begun a new program with WeTip, a leading anonymous crime reporting service non-profit, called Hit and Run Reward (www.HitandRunReward.com). It is designed to allow witnesses of hit-and-run accidents to anonymously submit information online or by phone that may help law enforcement locate drivers responsible for dangerous hit-and-run accidents. For the submission of useful information, the public is rewarded with cash. The program is an ingenious way of giving communities the tools to prevent fatal accidents.
