Legal Representation for Drunk Driver Accident Victims Peoria AZ
Injury or death caused by drunk driving is undoubtably the most hurtful and egregious of all personal injury cases. The fact that an innocent victim has suffered severe or fatal injury due to someone else’s negligence often outrages most city dwellers of Peoria Arizona.
Our Peoria AZ car accident lawyers aggressively pursue claims against those who drink irresponsibly as well as the nightclubs, bars, and restaurants that improperly serve them. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration has stated that 10,322 people were killed in alcohol-impaired-driving accidents in 2012. Although laws cannot replace loved ones, they do help by providing a means of recovery for victims and their families.
In the state of Arizona and especially in Peoria AZ, you, as the driver of your vehicle, accept the responsibility of “zero tolerance”. You also accept the responsibility to be in control of your vehicle as well as your responsibility to function as an unimpaired driver 100% of the time.
Arizona drivers are making a promise to themselves, as well as to all other drivers and passengers, that you will operate your vehicle conscientiously. If you drink and drive, you have broken your promise and accept that you are negligent and will be held liable for your actions with no legal or civil tolerance whatsoever.
Injuries and sometimes even wrongful death can be the result of an accident involving an alcohol related driver. DWI negligent drivers will have a difficult time and legally should not get away with their negligence if they caused you or a loved one any harm.
Arizona drivers with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or less are deemed sober enough to drive, but our legal team recommends not driving at all if you decide to drink any alcohol whatsoever.
Just The Facts Ma’am
The facts state that in a recent study covering one calendar year, more than 15,000 drivers, passengers and pedestrians were killed in alcohol impaired driving accidents and that almost 2,000 of these drivers had a BAC of .08% or less. Anyone in Peoria AZ, and for that matter anywhere in Arizona, who decides to operate a motor vehicle, no matter how many drinks they have consumed, is putting themselves and others at risk. Remember, in our state of Arizona there is an accepted zero tolerance for driving under the influence.
Peoria AZ Personal Injury By A Drunk Or Impaired Driver
If you have been in a car accident with a drunk driver, more than likely you are feeling confused, typically upset, and unsure of what you should do next. The team at Peoria Car Accident Lawyer confirm that it is completely normal to have questions. Remember, police, emergency medical techs (EMTs) and the ER hospital staff have their own responsibilities and do not want to answer questions, because they are not qualified to tell you what to do. They really cannot and should not answer the legal questions you have. The experienced personal injury attorneys we refer to will personally take you through the intricacies of an alcohol or drunk driving accident. If any intoxicated driver decides to get behind the wheel and ignore the law and causes you and a loved one personal injuries and/or property damages, the law empowers you to be compensated for your injuries due to another’s intoxicated negligence.
If you are involved and/or injured in a drunk driving accident that is not your fault…..
