DRUNK DRIVER ACCIDENTS

LAS VEGAS DRUNK DRIVER ACCIDENTS

Hit By A Drunk Driver In Nevada

At Eglet Prince, we have the resources, knowledge and experience to handle personal injury cases involving drunk drivers and the people who serve them. If you have been hit by a drunk driver in Nevada, you have the right to be angry. You also have the right to effective legal representation. Our Las Vegas law firm can help.

We will start by talking with you about the car accident. Depending on the facts involved, we could take different courses of action. Homeowners can often be held accountable for accidents caused by drivers who were over-served on private property. And employers can be held accountable if the drunk driver was on the job.

There are many things that drunk drivers do to cause serious personal injury and wrongful death, including the things listed below:

  • Swerving into other lanes or onto the shoulder
  • Driving on the wrong side of the road, often into oncoming traffic
  • Taking unnecessary risks
  • Driving without lights at night
  • Driving slower than the rest of traffic, often because the driver is trying to concentrate through his or her intoxication
  • Taking aggressive action against other drivers
  • Braking unnecessarily when trying to come to a stop
  • Reacting to street signs and road construction in a delayed manner

Statistically, the hours between 12 a.m. and 4 a.m. are times when drunk drivers are most likely to be on the road — especially near The Strip and in a half-mile radius in either direction. Drivers are advised to avoid the area at that time for their own protection.

What To Do If You See A Drunk Driver

If you see a drunk driver on the road, caution is king. It can be hard to anticipate how an intoxicated driver will react. Drivers may swerve into your lane, stop suddenly or even be carrying weapons to use against you. That is why it is critical to keep your distance. To not try to pass the driver or to signal the driver to pull over. If possible, have someone in your car dial 911 to report the matter.

Sadly, for many people, drunk driving accidents happen so suddenly that no amount of caution can prevent injury. In these cases, drunk drivers come out of nowhere — so fast that other drivers do not have time to react.
