What Makes Drunk Driving So Dangerous?

Alcohol is a known menace to drivers, but that doesn’t stop many drivers from making the wrong decision and getting behind the wheel after having a drink. With just one alcoholic beverage finished, a driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level can increase noticeably. The higher their BAC level, the worse their ability to safely drive will become.

Alcohol impairs a driver’s abilities by:

  • Increasing reaction times
  • Causing them to swerve in their lane
  • Blurring vision
  • Removing their ability to focus
  • Making them drowsy

If you were hit by someone who said they had a drink earlier in the night, then you can assume that they were not driving safely by any reasonable standard. Make a note of their comment to pass on to our team. It could be crucial in our efforts to prove that they should be completely liable for your damages.

How Can You Prove the Driver Was Drunk?

A statement from the other driver at the scene of the crash that admits to their intoxication is useful, but it probably isn’t the best evidence our team can find. Using our years of collective experience, we know how to investigate your crash and its surrounding circumstances to find proof of the other driver’s intoxication and, therefore, their liability. Specifically, working alongside police investigators and prosecutors could allow us access to many different types of evidence that otherwise would have gone unnoticed.

Police-related evidence that could help bolster your claim includes:

  • Field sobriety test (FST) results
  • Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test results
  • Evidence used for criminal prosecution
  • Conviction or sentencing results

The criminal case against the other driver is not directly tied to your civil case against them, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t use the same evidence or build our arguments off the results of that case. Indeed, if the driver is not convicted of drunk driving, you can file a drunk driving accident claim against them and win.
