Everyone knows drunk driving is dangerous, yet numerous drivers from Salt Lake City still drive under the influence. The legal limit for most states indicates that a driver’s blood alcohol content of between .01% to .07% is considered as buzzed driving. Such driving is just as dangerous as drunk driving even though some may argue that it’s not illegal. Statistics indicate that the “minimally buzzed” is to blame for grisly accidents. Such reckless driving has been condemned, and several organizations have spearheaded campaigns with the theme “buzzed driving is drunk driving.”
Why you may need a lawyer
Head on collisions, among other accidents caused by drunk driving, might put you in a situation where you need an attorney. If you are on the receiving end, you might be distressed due to disability, long time injury or paralysis. If you are the driver under the influence, you might even be charged with drunk driving, and may need to face an attorney representing the victim. No one likes losing a loved one due to another person’s negligence, and this will lead to battles in court.
An auto accident can also cause you have a serious injury that could be costly. This can lead to the involvement of a lawyer who will fight for you if you were the victim. Going after your accuser legally through civil and criminal charges could be the first step to changing their reckless driving behavior.
