Car Accident Lawyer in Morristown
Accidents Caused by DUI Drivers
Driving while under the influence of impairing substances such as alcohol is illegal in the state of Tennessee. If the BAC (blood alcohol content) of an individual is found to be at 0.08% or higher, then they are legally intoxicated and not permitted to be in control of a motor vehicle. Drunk drivers are the cause of thousands of accidents and deaths throughout the United States on an annual basis.
In 2008 327 people were killed in an accident involving a drunk driver whose BAC was 0.08% or greater in the state of Tennessee. By contrast, only 59 people were killed in an accident where the driver's BAC was between 0.01% and 0.07% in Tennessee. If you or your loved one has been injured in an accident that was caused by a drunk driver then you may be able to collect monetary compensation for your injuries. In order to have a personal injury claim you must be able to prove the negligence of another individual that caused your injuries. Driving under the influence of alcohol is against the law and therefore a negligent act on the drunk driver's part.
