Driving under the influence of alcohol is prohibited across the nation yet it continues to be a problem leading to many serious and even fatal car accidents.

Every time an intoxicated driver gets behind the wheel they are potentially endangering the lives of every other driver or pedestrian on the road. The damages from this activity reach into the billions every year and cause untold pain and emotionally suffering to thousands of individuals. If you or a loved one has been killed or injured in a drunk driver related accident you should seek legal representation from a Mesa car accident lawyer to fight for your compensation.
A DUI or DWI is an Offense and you could be Due Compensation
For many years we have all been familiar with the term "Driving under the Influence" or "Driving while Intoxicated". This offense was based largely upon a law enforcement officer's observations such as swerved driving, speech incapacity, erratic behavior and field tests such as breathalyzers. However the charges of DUI or DWI are now also coupled with another type of statutory offense which is upheld in all 50 states. This is called "illegal per se" which means an act is basically illegal and doesn't require any other element to make it illegal. In this case the law has stated that it is illegal to drive with a BAC (Blood Alcohol Concentration) of .08 or higher. Regardless of any other evidence or circumstances the mere fact of a BAC of .08 or higher makes it illegal to operate a vehicle.
If you are the victim of an accident where the driver's BAC was a minimum of .08 then you have a case for potential compensation. The legal team at the Knowles Law Firm has worked not only as a personal injury lawyer for years but has spent a good part of his career as a law enforcement officer. In this capacity there was the opportunity to be involved in drunk driving incidents at all levels, from apprehension to conviction. This career experience forms a strong background for assisting clients in seeking their just compensation. It is crucial that you act quickly in getting strong legal representation to pursue compensation for damages in the case.
Not only can damages be asked for the pain and suffering caused but the loss of future earnings as well as current economic losses can sought in drunk driving accident injury cases. Please
