Bachus & Schanker, LLC sponsors MADD Colorado for 2011
Commitment raises more than $100,000 for Colorado Mothers Against Drunk Driving
Bachus & Schanker, LLC is excited to continue as the Statewide Sponsor for Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Colorado in 2011. We have been a supporter of MADD since 2007 due to our experience working with the victims of drunk driving crashes. We’ve seen the devastating injuries and trauma to victims and their families as a result of drunk driving crashes. This sponsorship is our commitment to support MADD in its mission to make our roadways safer and to eliminate drunk driving throughout Colorado. With the 2011 commitment, Bachus & Schanker, LLC will have raised over $100,000 to support MADD.
“Without the generous support of Colorado donors and sponsors like Bachus & Schanker, LLC, MADD’s lifesaving programs and victim services wouldn’t be possible. In fact, we provided victim services to 300 more victim survivors in 2010 than we did in 2009 – an increase of 18%,” said Emily Tompkins, State Executive Director of MADD Colorado. “Law firms like Bachus & Schanker, LLC that fight for the rights of victims are critical to the healing process for the hundreds of victim/survivors impacted by alcohol-related injury and fatal traffic crashes in Colorado each year.”
In 2009 alone, 158 in Colorado were killed by a drunk driver. At Bachus & Schanker, LLC, we aggressively pursue claims against drunk drivers responsible for serious injuries and death. Under Colorado law, drunk driving victims are not limited to pursuing claims arising from the negligence of drunk drivers. They also have a right to sue for punitive damages designed to punish the drunk driver for willful, wanton, and reckless conduct. When you need a Denver drunk driving accident lawyer, the experienced team of attorneys at our law firm in Denver, Colorado will aggressively litigate drunk driving accidents to protect injury victims throughout all of Colorado.
