An Experienced North Carolina Car Accident Law Firm
North Carolina is a fault, or tort-based, car insurance state. This means that the person who is deemed legally at-fault for the accident is held liable for injuries and damages caused by the accident.
Proving that a driver was at fault for the accident depends on evidence such as witness statements and police reports, and the North Carolina car accident attorneys at Hyland + Padilla PLLC can investigate an incident and analyze the evidence to build your case.
Drunk Driving Accidents
One of the most dangerous things to do while behind the wheel is drinking and driving. Drunk drivers have slower reaction times and may drive in a reckless manner. Additionally, a victim of a drunk driving accident may be entitled to recovering damages for any injuries or even deaths.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), approximately one out of every three fatal vehicle collisions involve a driver with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or higher. In North Carolina, 0.08% is the limit at which a driver is considered to be “driving while impaired” (DWI).
What Qualifies as Drunk Driving in North Carolina?
- Drink While Operating A Vehicle
- Drinking While Operating A Non-Motorized Vehicle (Bike, Golf Cart)
- Buzzed Driving & Open Container
