Drunk Driving Accidents in Illinois
Every day, 32 people are killed in the United States due to accidents caused by drunk drivers. 30% of all accidents in the United States involve drivers who are drunk beyond the legally allowed maximum level to drive. In every state in the U.S., that level is a blood alcohol content of not greater than .08 grams in either 210 liters of breath or 100 milliliters of blood. That can be reached with as little as two drinks for a 120-pound woman. At this level, a person’s muscle and eye coordination are diminished and their reflexes are slowed.
In Illinois, if you are involved in an accident where the at-fault driver was impaired by alcohol you have a claim against not only the drunk driver but also potentially the bar where he was served.
Passengers in Cars Driven by Drunk Drivers
You don’t have to be driving another car to have a claim against a drunk driver. If you were a passenger in a car driven by a drunk driver and injured in an accident, you may have a claim against both the driver and the bar that served him.
