Have you been seriously injured in a drunk driver accident?
Drunken driving accidents are serious business. According to the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), in a recent one year period, 11,773 people died in alcohol-related accidents. Driving while under the influence of alcohol causes:
- Slower reaction time
- Reduced coordination
- Inability to concentrate
- Decreased ability to determine where one is on the road
- Impaired night vision
- Lowered ability to think clearly and make rational decisions
In both Ohio and Kentucky the blood alcohol level for driving under the influence (DUI) is .08% or higher. Even though DUI penalties are harsh, many individuals still drink and drive. Their negligence causes serious injuries or wrongful death to innocent people every day. An experienced Covington personal injury attorney can help you pursue damages on your behalf or for injuries to a loved one for medical bills, lost wages, disability and pain and suffering.
