What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville DUI Injury Injury Lawyer

DWI Injuries

Groups such as MADD and other public service organizations, government programs and otherwise constantly warn the public of the dangers of drunk driving, and yet it still occurs with surprising frequency, responsible for a shocking number of traffic deaths, over 41%. Almost 18,000 people have died last year due to alcohol-related car accidents, and more than 500,000 were injured.

Typically, a driver with a blood alcohol level (BAC) over .08% is legally considered to be driving under the influence of alcohol, in most jurisdictions. Blood alcohol level is usually measured by the use of a machine called a Portable Breath Tester, colloquially termed a “breathalyzer”. More invasive methods of determining blood alcohol level include urine and blood tests, although these may require a warrant for their use.

Most drunk drivers are discovered when they exhibit some of the following common drunk driving symptoms:

  • Turning with a wide radius.
  • Almost striking another vehicle or stationary object.
  • Weaving across the road.
  • Driving over the center lane markers.
