Just when you thought the thousands of deaths and injuries per year related to drunk driving were enough to defer people from doing it, there is now another great reason to avoid driving while intoxicated.
Drivers who are intoxicated and have an auto accident will most likely find that their insurance companies will not cover the cost of the expenses associated with the accident. It is fairly customary if you go to a hospital after a car accident they will give you a blood alcohol test to see if you were under the influence. If it is confirmed that you were driving while intoxicated that report will be sent to the insurance company and the claim will most likely be denied.
Insurance companies are not eager to pay for claims. Why give them a reason to deny yours? Avoid drinking and driving at all costs.
