Drunk Drivers Cause Many Serious Car Accidents

Drunk driving is a serious offense. Since 2002, it has been illegal in all 50 states to drive with a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher. Pennsylvania has a series of penalty tiers for a conviction of driving under the influence, depending on the driver’s BAC. The tiers are for .08, .10, and .16 percent or higher. The penalties include fines, loss of driving privileges and, after a second offense, jail time, with stiffer penalties for repeat offenses. An illegal BAC is the “presumptive” standard for establishing that a driver charged with DUI was driving under the influence or while impaired.

Other signs that a driver was impaired include:

  • Weaving or having trouble staying in their lane
  • Crossing the center yellow line
  • Driving too fast or too slow
  • Failing to use headlights at night
  • Failing roadside sobriety tests
  • Slurring speech
  • Having red or glassy eyes

A driver who drinks alcohol before getting into a car does not have to be legally drunk to cause an accident that results in injury or death. If you suspect that the driver who caused your accident may have been under the influence, a drunk driving accident lawyer at Munley Law will investigate that possibility.  As the victim of a drunk driving accident, you may be entitled to legal compensation.

Our Car Accident Attorneys Hold Drunk Drivers Accountable

If a drunk driver hurts or kills another person, the car accident attorneys at Munley Law will hold that driver accountable for his/her negligence and recklessness. Drivers who get behind the wheel after drinking face civil liability for the harm they cause. Injured victims and their families have a right to seek compensation for:

  • Wrongful death
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

After a fatal drunk driving accident, the deceased victim’s family may pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the drunk driver. If the driver is a minor, you may also be able to hold the person or establishment who served the driver alcohol responsible for the accident.
