Driving While Intoxicated
Intoxicated driving is perhaps the most enraging danger on the roadway because it is the most easily prevented and avoided. Though most people are keenly aware of the fact that driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is selfish and reckless, there are still many who continue to repeat the same poor decisions with dangerous and sometimes deadly results. Law enforcement officers actively seek to identify impaired drivers and to charge them as appropriate, but they cannot be everywhere at all times. As a consequence, it is not until an accident has occurred that the issue comes to light.
If you have been injured in a crash caused by a drunk or otherwise impaired driver, then you may be able to pursue a civil lawsuit against him or her seeking financial compensation to address medical bills and other damages that may have resulted.

Impairment of Driver Ability
To fully appreciate the extent of the danger posed by a drunk driver, it is important to consider the many different ways that alcohol and narcotics can adversely affect a driver’s ability to operate his or her vehicle safely. Though the following list is not exhaustive, it contains some of the most significant problems that are created by intoxicated driving:
- Inability to gauge braking distance
- Inability to gauge turning radius
- Fluctuations in speed
- Impaired judgment
- Delayed reaction time
- Loss of roadway awareness
