According to MADD, one person will be involved in an alcohol-related crash every minute and thousands of people will die in drunk driving accidents this year. The sad reality is that far too many of these accidents occur in the Tampa Bay area. With 4,038 DUI convictions in 2009, Hillsborough County had the greatest number of drunk driving convictions in Florida that year. Unfortunately, when innocent victims are involved in drunk driving accidents, the results can be detrimental and, in the worst cases, deadly.
