Drunk / Distracted Driving Accidents Archives

What is negligence in a car accident?

Any St Augustine resident who has been involved in a car accident understands the traumatic experience it can be. The adrenaline that shoots through the bloodstream during the event can leave one feeling absolutely drained afterwards, and that's disregarding any actual injuries suffered in the crash. Attempting to make sense of it is difficult, especially if serious injuries resulted. The question of "why me" can be even more pronounced if the accident was caused by someone else's negligence.

Can a bar or liquor store be held accountable for a DUI crash?

Drunk driving accidents are often devastating. Because drunk drivers have slowed reflexes and impaired risk-assessment and decision-making skills, the crashes they cause happen at high speeds and may be head-on collisions.

Study: Mandatory ignition interlocks do reduce fatal crash rate

Researchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Colorado School of Public Health have found that the rate of fatal motor vehicle crashes has dropped in states with mandatory ignition interlock laws. Twenty-six U.S. states have these laws, which require every driver convicted of DUI to install and maintain a device on their vehicle which won't allow it to start unless the driver is sober. In the other 24 states, only some DUI convictions require the interlock.
