Drunk Driving Car Accident Lawyer
Every state in the U.S. defines drunk driving as driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) at or above 0.08 percent. Every state considers this a crime, though specific laws and penalties vary from state to state. Drunk driving, also referred to as driving under the influence, should be taken very seriously. In fact, in addition to the criminal penalties, a drunk driver is also susceptible to civil suits. This is because the negligence of driving while under the influence can have a catastrophic effect on passengers, pedestrians and other drivers on the road. Drunk driving accidents can result in serious and life threatening injuries, such as:
- Head injury
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Wrongful death
