DRUNK DRIVING ACCIDENTS

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the number one leading cause of fatalities in motor vehicle accidents is drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. The NHTSA also reports the sobering statistic that approximately one-third of Americans will be involved in a DUI-related wreck at some point in their lives.

 

No one would argue that reaction times are slowed and decision-making skills are impaired by those who endanger other people’s lives by driving under the influence.  Unfortunately, most drivers who are involved in DUI-related automobile accidents are repeat offenders with prior convictions for DUI.

 

 

 

DID YOU KNOW?

Georgia law provides criminal liability for operating a motor vehicle when impaired by alcohol or drugs. Anyone who drives in Georgia when his or her blood alcohol content (BAC) exceeds .08 is presumed to have his or her driving ability impaired by alcohol. There is no minimum threshold for operating a vehicle when the substance causing impairment is a drug, whether illegal narcotic, over-the-counter medication, or prescription drug.

 

WHAT TO DO NOW

Not only do the victims of DUI cases deserve to be compensated for their injuries or loss, but a message must be sent loud and clear in order to hold drunk drivers accountable for their choices. Contact Scott Pryor Law now if you or someone you know is a victim of a drunk driving accident.
