Drinking and driving is a top cause of car accidents each year resulting in thousands of personal injuries and fatalities. When you are impaired by alcohol you lose muscle coordination and reaction time. It also causes you to lose your ability to focus and function at the level needed to operate a moving vehicle. You also put innocent people at risk because of your selfish choice to drive when you shouldn’t. The tragedy and grief caused by drunken driving accidents should make any reasonable person think twice before operating a motor vehicle while impaired. Always designate a driver or take a taxi when going out to drink. Alcohol impairs your judgment and makes you do things you normally would not do. The legal limit for DUI in is a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher. The effects of different BAC levels are as follows:

.01 to .04 — Hard to notice but person has a subtle decline in motor skills..

.04 to .06 —A greater decline in motor skills and visual function is noticable. A person appears more relaxed and uninhibited..

.07 to .10 —At this level the effects become apparent and more obvious. At .08 a person is more than 10 times more likely to get in a car accident than a sober person. Visual and motor skills are effected significantly.

.11 to .20 —At these levels a person appears to be obviously drunk. A person starts acting irrationally and with impaired judgment. Slurred speech and emotional mood swings as well as loss of motor skills and reaction time to name a few are apparent.

.20 & Up —This level results in severe to total loss of motor skills and can result in loss of consciousness and memory. As the person approaches .30 the possibility of alcohol poisoning and death become a serious possibility..

Drunk driving accidents can be prevented. With harsher penalties and education accidents have come down in recent years but not nearly enough. If a person wants to get drunk that’s fine as long as they don’t drive and put other innocent people at risk. It’s ok to have a good time but when it results in harm to others in any way then it becomes a selfish act that can ruin the lives of innocent people.

Are You a Victim of Speeding Accident?

If you’ve been injured in a car accident due to speeding or driver negligence, contact us today. We can help you get compensated ASAP!

We all witness drivers speeding to some degree or another each day. Excessive speeding causes many accidents each year. Many accidents happen when a driver’s reaction time is decreased because of excessive speeding. Speeding is dangerous and traveling above the speed limit is an easy way to cause a car accident. The faster you drive, the slower your reaction time to prevent an auto accident. About one third of all auto accidents are caused by excessive speeding. This is also another form of negligence on the part of the speeder. Obviously, the faster you drive the less reaction time you have to avoid an accident. The price for speeding is great from tickets to fatalities. Injuries are more severe at higher speeds and can be fatal. Going the speed limit can also be speeding if it is in dangerous conditions. Even speeding a little bit in a low speed limit area can cause accidents. Is it really worth arriving at your destination a few seconds early by risking the possibility of getting a speeding ticket or hitting someone because your following them too close. Always us the three second rule when following another car and error on the side of caution. While driving spot a sign or marker and when the car in front of you passes it count 3 seconds. If you reach the marker before 3 seconds slow down and try it a again. Make sure this does not distract you in anyway while driving. There is no advantage gained by speeding other then arriving at your destination a few seconds or minutes early. The risk of speeding far outweighs the gain. A serious accident or even a speeding ticket is not worth the extra few seconds gained. Leave early and have a more relaxing drive without fear of getting into an accident or receiving a ticket.

Did Someone that Ran a Red Light Hit You?

Are you a victim of someone that ran a red light? If so, contact our car accident attorneys. We can help you file your claim and get compensated today!

Running a red light is one of the top causes of car accidents each year resulting in thousands of personal injury cases and wrongful deaths. When collisions do occur they are usually at high speeds and are often catastrophic. Often people run red lights because they are in a hurry and the anticipation of making the light makes them speed up which in turn causes a worse potential collision. The idea that someone’s time is more important than safety is very irrational yet drivers continue to run red lights. These types of crashes usually result in more serious injuries because of the collision factor. Running a red light is a form of negligence and can be prosecuted by a defendant who has sustained injuries.

Are You A Victim of Driver Negligence?

If you’ve been injured in a car accident due to driver Negligence, contact us today. We can help you get compensated ASAP!

Negligence is often the basis for most car accidents. The law requires that drivers act with reasonable care when operating a vehicle. A driver must not behave carelessly, thoughtlessly or in a reckless manner causing harm to others. In proving whether a person involved in an accident was negligent or not, the law compares the drivers behavior with the behavior expected of a reasonable person. In other words how should a reasonable person act under the same circumstance as the driver that is in question of being negligent. Negligence can be shown in many ways such as following a car too close, speeding, texting and cell phone use while driving, not watching for pedestrians, etc. If for instance a pedestrian runs out in front of your car and a reasonable driver could not have stopped in time then this would not be negligence provided the driver was not speeding.

Tis the Season, to be Conscious!

According to the U.S. Government, “During the holidays, alcohol-related car accidents claim more lives than at any other time of the year.” The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) has documented that 40% of automobile-related fatalities during Christmas and New Year’s involve intoxicated individuals, which is a 12% increase from the rest of the month of December. The NIAAA is advising people to be alert at how quickly alcohol takes effect on the human body and to pace ones-self during a night out that involves driving afterwards. They summarized by stating that if you do have to drive after a night of drinking to try to make sure to not have more than one alcoholic beverage per hour and try to have a non-alcoholic drink in between each alcoholic one and to take into regards the atrocious effects of a deadly accident.

Person Texting While Driving Hit You?

This is one of the worst things to ever happen to highway safety. Texting while driving is worse than using a cell phone obviously because the driver is constantly looking back and forth between their typing a message and looking at the road. It is a major cause of accidents because you only have to take your eyes off the road for one second for something unexpected to happen on the road and for you to lose your reaction time that you would have had if you were paying attention. Accidents often happen when you don’t have enough reaction time to avoid them and distractions for even a second are enough for you to lose the reaction time you need to avoid and accident. Not paying attention by texting while driving is negligence and could result in a serious accident with major consequences.
