MISSION: To stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking.
A MADD Victim Advocate can offer you emotional support and information by phone or in person. Many of our advocates have themselves experienced the tragedy of an impaired driving crash.
MADD provides a wide selection of free literature, available in English and Spanish, for victims/survivors of crashes. If you need financial assistance MADD Victim Advocates can help you with referrals for funds such as Crime Victims’ Compensation.
Your advocate may provide a list of professional counselors and clergy skilled in working with crash victims/survivors. They may also be able to refer you to a list of civil attorneys skilled in handling wrongful death and personal injury cases.
MADD chapters may offer victim support groups where you can meet other individuals and families who share similar experiences. Your advocate can tell you how to obtain the crash report and the offender’s driving record (in most states). Your advocate can inform you about the drunk driving laws and victim rights in your state. MADD Victim Advocates can assist you in preparing a Victim Impact Statement to present at the sentencing of the offender.
MADD Advocates may be able to accompany you to court to offer emotional support and provide information about legal procedures.
