Drunk Drivers Pose a Serious Threat in Ahwatukee

People impaired by alcohol have no business operating a motor vehicle. In Arizona, a driver is legally intoxicated when their blood alcohol content (BAC) is 0.08% or higher. Drivers of large commercial vehicles who require a commercial driver’s license (CDL) are legally intoxicated when their BAC is 0.04% or higher.

DUI drivers are a threat to pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcycle riders, and occupants of other motor vehicles. Alcohol impairs the following abilities that are essential for safe driving:

  • Judgment
  • Vision
  • Reflexes
  • Reaction time
  • Hearing
  • Coordination
  • Mental processing

How Your Drunk Driving Accident Victim Lawyer in Ahwatukee Can Help

Your Ahwatukee car accident lawyer will investigate the accident to determine who is liable for the injuries you have suffered. An arrest for drunk driving isn’t necessary for obtaining a civil judgment against an intoxicated driver who harmed you.

Under Arizona’s dram shop laws, bars, liquor stores, servers, and others may share liability for your injuries if they served or sold alcohol to someone who was clearly intoxicated or younger than 21.

The Husband & Wife Law Team will collect the following types of evidence to demonstrate the extent of your injuries and show that the driver who injured you was legally drunk:

  • Police reports
  • Medical records
  • Physical evidence
  • Arrest records
  • BAC test results
  • Accident scene photos
  • Surveillance camera video
  • Witness testimony
  • Evidence presented in a criminal trial
