Alcohol Consumption and Impaired Driving
Driving a motor vehicle comes with some degree of unavoidable risk, regardless of a driver’s own skills and adherence to best driving practices. For example, the actions of other motorists are beyond an individual’s own control and can be dangerous. Unfortunately, rather than exhibiting a respect for the rights and safety of others on the roadway, some instead choose to engage in behaviors that endanger others’ lives. An alarmingly common example is the decision to drive while intoxicated.
If you have been hurt in an accident that was caused by a drunk driver then you may be eligible for financial compensation.

Impairments Arising from Alcohol Use
There are many different ways that drinking alcohol bears directly upon an individual’s ability to safely drive a motor vehicle, and numerous research studies have established that drinking is a contributing factor in many severe accidents. Some of the impairments that may arise include:
- Compromised motor skills
- Blurred or double vision
- Impaired judgment
- Lack of attention to the roadway
- Risk of falling asleep
- Inability to gauge braking distance
- Inability to monitor speed
There is no justification for driving while too impaired to safely operate a motor vehicle. If you or a family member has been harmed by an inebriated driver, our Waukesha drunk driving accident attorneys can help you pursue the full compensation you deserve.
