If you or someone you know has been hurt in a car accident caused by a drunk driver, you may be entitled to significant compensation. Drunk driving is not only dangerous for the driver but also for other innocent people on the road. Nothing can undo the harm done when someone is hurt or killed by a drunk driver.
The legal limit for driving under the influence varies from state to state. A blood alcohol concentration (BAC) between 0.08 percent and 0.10 percent typically leads to a DUI charge. When you are drunk, your reaction time is much slower than it would be if you were sober. You can’t control your car as well when you are intoxicated, so your body is more likely to get hurt in a car accident. When you add alcohol to the mix, it only gets worse.
