Drunk Driving Wrecks



Our firm takes Drunk Driving very seriously.  We handle cases for clients who have been injured by drunk drivers, or drivers under the influence of drugs. Attorney Season Atkinson was a victim of drunk driving when he father was killed in a fatal drunk driving accident when she was only 6 years old.  This experience has led her to become a serious advocate for the victims of drunk driving.  She takes a special interest in helping victims of impaired drivers.  Season serves on the state advisory board of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and, in January 2018, was selected for the National Board of Directors of MADD.

The North Carolina DMV states that Drunk driving or “driving while impaired" (DWI) in North Carolina is a serious offense.  The North Carolina's Safe Roads Act of 1983 did away with all of the state's previous drug and alcohol related driving laws and put everything under a single offense driving while impaired, or DWI.  Bblood alcohol concentration (BAC) is the most common way NC determines whether you're legally impaired.

North Carolina DWI law is complex and there are many criminal defense lawyers specializing in helping drunk drivers in criminal matters. Civil and criminal law are separate, but in this case, the outcome of the criminal prosecution for drunk driving may have a significant impact on the civil case.


If you are injured by a drunk driver, you may have personal injury damages claims beyond those available to those injured by other drivers. Drunk drivers may be liable for punitive damages.
