Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists provides victim services to those impacted by impaired and reckless driving crashes. By ensuring that victims are treated with dignity, respect, and compassion, we create an environment that fosters healing and empowers them to reclaim their lives. This presentation will start with a case study of a violation of crime victims’ rights, then look at the unique needs of assisting surviving family members and assisting those who have been severely injured in impaired driving crashes, and conclude with meaningful steps on how to engage with victims and ensure that victims’ rights are upheld throughout the criminal case.
