Driving under influence (DUI) is a major cause of road accidents in the US. According to one study alcohol is the main cause of 40% of the crashes that result in death.

As alcohol levels rise in a person’s system, the negative effects on the central nervous system increase. Alcohol is being absorb directly through the walls of the stomach and small intestine. Then it passes into the bloodstream where it accumulates until it metabolize by the liver. A person’s alcohol level is measured by the weight of the alcohol in a certain volume of blood. This is called Blood Alcohol Concentration, or BAC. At a BAC of .08 grams of alcohol per deciliter (g/dL) of blood, crash risk increases exponentially. Because of this risk, it’s illegal in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico to drive with a BAC of .08 or higher, except in Utah where the BAC limit is .05. 

DUI is in itself a crime, however, when met with an accident and injuring someone, consequences can be severe for the driver. And if unfortunately, you became the victim of such an accident, you are entitle to get damages for your sufferings. And Punitive Damages to deter this wrongful conduct!
