Drunk Driving 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.
