Consequences of Driving Under the Influence
Traffic law holds that an alcohol blood level of 0.08% or higher constitutes being over the legal limit and intoxicated. It is commonly known that drunk drivers cause accidents due to being disoriented and are in fact a common cause of serious car accidents. However, those driving under the influence are the last to consider the devastation they can cause. Innocent people become victims of drunk drivers all over the country and suffer every imaginable injury from minor scrapes to wrongful death. Because a drunk driver is less alert than a sober driver, they are usually not trying to slow down or avoid a wreck, so there is often great damage and injury. If you or any loved one has been a victim of such an accident, you should retain a Denver personal injury attorney from the offices of Andrus, Hood & Wagstaff for help in investigating your case to determine all possible recompense which may rightfully be yours.
By pursuing a lawsuit against those responsible, you can also contribute to raising awareness of the dangers of drunk driving and thus help with the effort to make safer roads for everyone. Saving even one life through drunk driving awareness is a great benefit.
