Ogden Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys

What to Do If You Were Injured by a Drunk Driver

Drunk driving is never acceptable. Not only is it incredibly dangerous, putting the driver’s life and the lives of everyone else on the road at risk, but it is also against the law. In fact, Utah is known for having the strictest drunk driving laws in the nation.

Despite this, many people still make the choice to get behind the wheel of a car after consuming alcohol—often with devastating results. Apart from any criminal proceedings that make take place, victims of drunk driving accidents are entitled to take civil actions against the drunk driver and seek compensation for their damages, which may include things like medical bills, lost income, property damage, and pain and suffering.

If you were injured by a drunk driver, or if your loved one died after being hit by someone who was driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs, we encourage you to reach out to one of our experienced drunk driving lawyers in Ogden to learn more about your legal rights and options. Pursuing a personal injury or wrongful death claim after a drunk driving accident is not a simple matter; having a knowledgeable attorney on your side can make all the difference in your case.

Drunk Driving Laws in Utah

As previously mentioned, as of 2018, Utah has the strictest drunk driving laws in the United States. In December of 2018, the state passed a new law lowering the legal limit from 0.08% to 0.05%. What does this mean? This means that if you have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.05% or higher, you are considered to be driving under the influence of alcohol and can be cited and/or arrested by law enforcement. Depending on a person’s age, weight, and gender, this could mean that as little as one alcoholic drink could be enough to put someone above the legal limit.

For those in support of the law—and against drunk driving—this is a good thing. In fact, studies have shown that any amount of alcohol in a person’s system could significantly impair their concentration, reaction time, and movements, all things that are critical to the act of driving.

Seeking Compensation for Severely Injured Victims

Sadly, many drunk driving accidents are fatal. Even when victims live, they are likely to sustain serious, life-altering injuries. This is because drunk drivers have significantly impaired reaction times, meaning they are less likely to stop in time or even slow down to avoid a collision. At high rates of speed, collisions are much more likely to be deadly or result in severe, catastrophic injuries.

Common injuries in drunk driving accidents include:

  • Fractures/broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Head and neck trauma
  • Shoulder and back injuries
  • Accidental amputation
  • Internal organ and soft tissue damage
  • Hemorrhaging

At Lowe Law Group, we understand that treatment for these injuries can lead to exorbitant medical bills. You may even require ongoing or lifelong care and could be prevented from returning to work for weeks, months, or years. And, of course, the physical and emotional impact of a drunk driving accident is enormous, often leading to a range of resulting issues, such as anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Our goal is to recover compensation for all of your current and future damages. While no amount of financial compensation can ever truly make up for what you have been through, it can allow you to obtain critical medical treatment and the ability to heal.
