The dangers of drunk driving – DUI's and more

It is common knowledge that drunk driving is against the law. Driving while under the influence of drugs is dangerous and may cause fatal accidents. Despite it being illegal, drunk driving has become a major issue in the U.S. In order to mitigate the situation at hand; the government is becoming increasingly strict and vigilant towards these incidents.

Thousands of Americans die each year due to accidents caused by drunk driving. Drunk driving is a reckless and dangerous act. If you do drive under intoxication and you are lucky enough to not cause any injury to yourself and others, you are likely to get charged with a DUI.

When a law enforcement official pulls you over if he or she suspects that this may be a case for drunk driving, they confirm their suspicion and make a decision based on several factors. One of these factors is the amount of alcohol in the suspect's blood. It can be checked by using a breathalyzer. The suspect may get charged with a DUI if the BAC level is anything above 0.8.

First-time offenders are usually let off with a fine, but repeating the same offense again could result in jail time or license revocation. If an accident is caused while driving under the influence of alcohol, the driver might also have to pay compensation and medical expenses for anyone who gets injured in the accident.

If you or someone you love has recently fallen victim to an accident caused by a drunk driver, hiring an attorney might be in your best interest. The attorney will review your case and try to ensure that you receive compensation for all the damages you have come across.
