Drunk Driver Accidents in Philadelphia
Get The Representation You Need
When an individual operates a motor vehicle while under the influence of
alcohol or drugs, they place themselves and others on the road at a very
high risk of being injured or killed. Drunk driving laws have been set
in place to discourage people from driving vehicles with compromised motor
functions and slowed reaction times.
When a person's blood alcohol concentration is at or above .08%, they
are considered to be legally intoxicated and cannot safely operate a vehicle.
Individuals who drive drunk cannot react as quickly as sober drivers and
can make mistakes behind the wheel that can cause accidents, injuries,
and even death.
