Drunk Driving Victims: What You Should Know

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a serious offense.  If you’ve been injured by a drunk driver, contact a Denver Personal Injury Attorney as soon as possible because drunk drivers must be held responsible for their decisions that put others in serious danger or worse.

Sadly all drunk driving accidents are preventable, and all drivers who make the decision to get behind the wheel while impaired and harm others should be held responsible for the damages they cause. While no amount of money can fully account for the damage and suffering associated with an injury or loss caused by a drunk driving accident, our lawyers are here to help get real results for people injured by drunk drivers. 

Colorado Drunk Driving Law

It is against the law in Colorado to drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Colorado Laws hold that a person is prohibited from “driving a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs or while the person’s ability to drive is impaired by alcohol or drugs.” Intoxication is determined through blood and alcohol tests, in addition to other methods, and drivers found to be intoxicated can be held responsible for any damages and injuries they cause.

Injuries Caused By Drunk Driving

As with any serious car accident, the injuries caused by drunk drivers can be severe and include:

  • Broken bones
  • Disfiguring injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Head trauma

Injuries can also impact the health and well-being of a victim for life.
