Drunk Drivers

Drunk drivers are legally responsible for the death and injuries resulting from their actions.  There are a number of ways that a person can be required to pay for injuries and deaths that occur from their drunk driving behavior.  Drunk driving in the State of Iowa can be proven by establishing that the offending driver had an alcohol concentration in excess of .08; had a drug or controlled substance in their system; or was “under the influence” of alcohol, drug, or combination of alcohol or drug, at the time of the collision.

It is not enough to just show that the offending driver was over the legal limit or had a controlled substance present in their system at the time of the accident for an injured person to be compensated by the offending driver’s insurance company.  Rather the injured party must be able to prove that the alcohol, drug or a combination thereof, was a “proximate cause” of the accident and resulting injury or death.  This requires the attorney representing the injured person or family to understand both the legal and scientific nuances that are associated with drunk driving cases.
