Drunk Driving Accidents
Were you injured by a drunk driver?
Drunk driving accidents are among one of the leading causes of avoidable
death and injury in the entire United States. A driver is considered to
be over the legal limit of alcohol consumption when their blood alcohol
content (BAC) is .08 percent or more. Any time a driver gets behind the
wheel of a vehicle after they have consumed any volume of alcohol runs
the risk of injuring an innocent victim. Although the individual that
caused your accident may not have been over the legal limit, their intoxication
may still have caused you injury. This is a form of negligence that a
person should be held accountable for.
Although drivers who are arrested for driving under the influence may be
criminally charged with a DUI and suffer penalties, you still have the
opportunity to file a personal injury claim against them. Rather than
a criminal charge, a personal injury claim is based on the principle of
negligence rather than guilt. If a person's negligent actions caused
you or your loved one to sustain an injury then you have the opportunity
to file a claim against that person in order to receive compensation.
