Drunk Driving Accidents & Injuries
Columbia, SC Car Accident Attorney
Each year there are countless car accidents that occur. A large portion of these involve a driver who is found to have alcohol in their system. Many people do not realize the effects that even a seemingly small amount of alcohol can have on them and they get behind the wheel believing that they are ok to drive. It is devastating when an accident that could have easily been avoided leads to significant injuries or takes the life of an individual.
The consumption of alcohol can greatly impair a person and reduce their ability to drive. Their sight can become blurry, they are slower to react, they can become reckless and they may feel a sense of euphoria, losing the sense of danger that is needed when driving. When a driver is influenced by alcohol they may not realize that their actions are dangers. By the time they do become aware, it is often too late. Since a drunk driver can have a decreased sense of reaction, the accidents they cause can be even more damaging since they never made an effort to avoid the situation. They may run head on into another vehicle or can speed through an intersection.
