The National Highway Traffic Safety Association has reported that almost 11,000 people died and more than 200,000 suffered injuries due to drunk drivers in 2017. Drunk driving is a factor in 29% of traffic fatalities. Drivers in Pennsylvania should be wary of others on the road, as drunk driving remains the No. 1 cause of car accident deaths. The organization Mothers Against Drunk Driving has called for increased efforts by those in the automotive industry to combat the problem with technology.

On the other hand, maybe you arrived at the facility for a visit and discovered bruises on your parent's body. The staff may have been apologetic, or they may have seemed disinterested. Perhaps they even blamed your parent for the fall.
