Alabama Car Accident Attorneys Driving Under the Influence

Alabama Car Accident Attorneys Driving Under the Influence: Operating any type of motor vehicle under the influence (DUI) of alcohol and drugs (prescribed or taken illegally) is against the law. EVERYONE knows this, yet for some reason hundreds of Alabamians engage in this dangerous behavior every year.

Maybe those who drive under the influence think that they can handle it, but alcohol and drugs lowers one's inhibitions and makes it much easier to make a stupid decision. Alcohol and drug use have serious effects on a driver. They can cause: impaired vision, slow down the driver's reaction time, cause lower concentration, cause the driver to become drowsy and lead to overconfidence on the driver's part while operating a car.

Alcohol and drug use can also cause the same difficulties the next day. The question is not have you recently consumed alcohol or drugs, but are they still having an effect on you.

In a study conducted by the Alabama Department of Transportation, it was reported that there were 127,653 automobile accidents in Alabama during the period being looked at; 6,859 or these wrecks were attributed to a driver driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Of these 6,850 car crashes, 220 involved a fatality.

Driving under the influence (DUI) was the number 1 cause of all fatal automobile accidents during the time examined.

If you or a loved one was injured in an automobile accident, or worse killed, due to another driver being under the influence, there are legal remedies available, but nothing can replace a lost loved one. We understand this, but despite the turmoil you are facing, legal deadlines continue to run and evidence still has to be collected in order for you to pursue your legal rights.

You don't have to deal with this alone.

If this has happened to your family and you have questions about your rights, don't hesitate to contact and speak with one of the experienced Alabama Car Accident Attorneys at Powell and Denny today.
