According to media reports, a 49-year-old Plymouth man is facing his eighth charge of drunk driving-also referred to in Massachusetts as Operating Under the Influence (OUI). A habitual traffic offender, Edward Wright was arrested last night and charged with an OUI, a marked lanes violation, and operating with a revoked license. Reports indicate that his license had been revoked for 10 years due to consistent traffic offenses. Fortunately, no one appears to have been injured as a result of Wright’s alleged conduct.
Massachusetts courts view drunk driving and drunk driving accidents very seriously, as do we. If you have been injured by a drunk driver, an experienced Boston and Cambridge OUI accident attorney can help you through the process of filing a claim and seeking financial recovery. Although we hope that state and federal crackdowns on drunk driving will limit the number of accidents caused by OUI, our Boston personal injury lawyers are here to represent victims and their families injured by a drunk driver.
