You've done all the right things: check your blind spots, maintain your vehicle's brakes and absolutely do not engage in distracted driving behaviors. Then, out of nowhere, you are involved in a car accident with another vehicle and you suspect something may be wrong with the other driver. What might indicate that the driver is intoxicated?
When we think of our vehicle, we don't really think of it as a weapon. However, if the driver were to get behind the wheel while intoxicated, a vehicle could become a weapon that could hurt or kill. This is because when drivers are intoxicated, they aren't operating their vehicle to the best of their ability, as alcohol is a depressant that slows down the body.
Every day, countless Americans start their car and head out onto the open road. While the vast majority of these journeys go without incident, some unfortunately meet a disastrous end. Car accidents can leave a person with severe injuries that can impact their function for the rest of their life. Because of the seriousness of these situations, it's crucial that the party who caused the accident is held responsible. Of course, moving through these incidents, especially when major injuries have been inflicted, is one of the most challenging tasks anyone can face. That's why it's important to have experience legal representation on your side.
