Drunk driving refers to situations where individuals operate a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol. Motorists who operate vehicles while intoxicated are far likely to cause accidents because alcohol impairs one’s sense of judgment as well as slows down their ability to react. Victims of a drunk driving accident often end up in a hospital with severe injuries or even lose their lives. There are legal options for people who suffered injuries at the hands of drunk drivers. At Team Law, we have worked with victims of many drunk driving accidents to ensure that they receive the justice that they deserve.
In most parts of the world, there is a limit to how much alcohol one can consume and legally operate a vehicle. This is because, after exceeding safe alcohol limits (measured in Blood Alcohol Content or BAC), a driver is no longer in effective control of the vehicle and is likely to cause an accident. In New Jersey, the legal limit is 0.08%. Typical drunk driving accidents involve running over pedestrians, head-on vehicle collisions due to speeding, and more. It is estimated that at least 29 people die every day across the United States due to drunk driving accidents.
New Jersey laws allow victims of drunk driving accidents to sue negligent drivers for compensatory and punitive damages. The law also gives victims the leeway to sue even if the drunk driver’s BAC is not above the legal limit. After all, drunk driving is a crime and the presence of alcohol in a driver is unacceptable. With that in mind, it becomes critical to ensure that proper evidence is collected right from the get-go, e.g. blood alcohol test results. For this reason, having a lawyer who understands the process is one’s best bet to ensure that he or she successfully receives financial compensation.
Many victims of drunk drivers get little or no compensation for their pain and suffering because critical processes were not followed. At Team Law, we fully understand the process of filing for a claim when it comes to drunk driving accidents. We will fight for you all the way to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
