Drunk Driving Car Accidents
Drunk driving is a reckless behavior that leads to numerous car accidents across the nation. Lexington drivers are, like others, affected by drunk drivers every year, and many victims suffer serious physical injuries as well as financial burdens. But the attorneys of Wilson & McQueen, PLLC know that while drunk drivers are not only being personally responsible when they’re driving intoxicated, they may be held legally responsible for the injuries and costs they cause.
Causes of Drunk Driving Accidents
Of course we know that drunkenness “causes” drunk driving accidents, but what specifically makes an accident more likely is when a driver is drunk. Drunk driving can lead to any of the following dangerous behaviors:
- Swerving / changing lanes without warning
- Veering into oncoming traffic
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Decreased reaction times
- Inability to properly operate a vehicle
All of these effects of drinking too much can make a car accident so much more likely, but an experienced personal injury attorney might be able to help victims of drunk driving recover compensation in Lexington.
