Common Causes of Drunk Driving Accidents

Unlike many other types of vehicle accidents, being hit by a drunk driver involves a selfish act of gross negligence. The person that caused the accident willfully chose to consume too much alcohol, and they followed that decision by getting behind the wheel of a vehicle. You may have taken every precaution to operate your vehicle in a safe manner and still become the victim of a drunk driver. If you have been hit by a drunk driver, then we may be able to help. Our expert DUI accident lawyers will get to work collecting vital evidence that will be necessary to fight for you and make every effort to obtain the best possible injury settlement for you.

While alcohol is the key contributing factor, the manner of the crash will vary with each incident. Drunk drivers and the accidents that they cause are the result of negligence and impaired function. Some of the most frequent causes of alcohol-related car crashes include:
