Accidents a drunk driver may cause

The impaired vision, motor coordination, and response times that a drunk drivers exhibit make them capable of extreme recklessness on the road. Drunk drivers have been responsible for rear-end collision due to their slow reaction time. If a victim of a rear-end accident is lucky, he or she can walk away with only property damage. In other cases, however, a drunk driver’s reckless behavior leads to a fatality, which may be grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit. The behavior preceding a drunk-driving accident may involve the driver:

  • Swerving into oncoming traffic
  • Entering the highway on an exit ramp
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Forgetting to turn on headlights
  • Side-swiping a car in an adjacent lane
