The law clearly states that you are entitled to receive compensation through making a car accident injury claim when you are the victim of another driver’s negligence. This is especially true when the other driver was under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Here’s what you should know about making car accident compensation claims against drivers who used alcohol or drugs.
It is illegal for a driver to have more than 80 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 milliliters of blood. What does this mean in terms of the amount of alcohol a driver can have? It really depends on the driver’s weight, height, and alcohol tolerance. It could take only one glass of wine or a pint of beer to reach beyond the legal limit.
Why is it illegal to consume more than the legal limit of alcohol when driving? Alcohol can seriously impair a person’s functioning and that leads to a higher likelihood of car accidents. For one, a driver under the influence of alcohol might have poor judgement and make mistakes while driving. The danger of being under the influence while driving is that the driver might feel overconfident and drive too fast, turn at high speeds, fail to keep their eyes on the road, or attempt to overtake another car in unsafe conditions. Your car accident injury claim should include the mistakes that the driver made while under the influence.
Car accident injury claims can also be made against a drunk driver who has hit a pedestrian, a person on a motorbike, or a person on a bicycle. If you were a victim of a drunk driver, a car accident injury claim can help you pay for hospital bills, repair costs, and other expenses. Your car accident injury claim can also include compensation for pain and suffering on your part.
Drugs are another major cause of car accidents and car accident injury claims. The most commonly used drug in the country today is cannabis, which has a sedative effect on drivers. When a driver is too relaxed, coordination and responsiveness can be seriously affected as a result. They also struggle to drive at a constant speed and make turns around bends in the road. All these can lead to a car accident injury claim. Other common drugs used include ecstasy and acid. These drugs have serious effects on drivers and lead to many car accidents every year.
