Serving Victims of DUI accidents across Nevada
Thousands of accidents occur every year across the country due to people driving while drunk or high, and many prove to be fatal. There is a significant number of drunk driving incidents in Nevada as party destinations such a Las Vegas invariably attract a higher number of intoxicated people.
The most unfortunate and depressing truth about these accidents is that they were completely preventable and the tragic judgment call of the driver may potentially have cost someone’s life. If you or a loved one is involved in an accident caused by drunk driving, you will need experienced lawyers to defend your rights and deliver maximum compensation for your injuries. You also have a moral obligation to your community’s safety to bring the reckless driver to justice, in order to prevent him/her from causing more harm to others. There are many stringent federal and state laws protecting your rights and we can help you exercise them when filing your lawsuit against the accused driver.
Know Nevada’s DUI Laws
While you can hold the drunk driver legally accountable for the accident in civil courts, drunk driving is also a criminal offense and the case will be tried in criminal court. If the blood alcohol content of the driver is equal to or above 0.08%, he/she can be charged with a DUI and hence it is crucial to ask for the police officer on scene to conduct the necessary tests if you suspect drunk driving. These records can add value to your claim and be used as strong proof in court. The Illegal Per Se Law states that driving with an alcohol content equal or more than 0.08% is an offense in and of itself, even if the driver had not caused an accident, and you can have the driver committed this act solely. The Implied Consent Law states that one must submit to BAC (blood alcohol content) testing when requested by a police officer as driving while under influence already implies consent. Hence the accused driver cannot refuse from being tested if the police officer also suspects drunk driving.
