DWI Accident Victims
A car accident in which a person is severely injured or killed affects everyone who cares about the victim. There is always a great deal of sadness and anger involved with any accident. But if it was an accident in which someone else’s negligence was to blame, those feelings of anger and hurt become even stronger.
The blame may be apparent if the driver who caused the wreck was under the influence of alchohol. If you or someone you love has been severely injured in a car accident involving a driver who you suspect was under the influence of alcohol, contact the Iowa personal injury lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at 877-327-2600 for legal advice.
When to Suspect Drunk Driving
It is important that you immediately notify the police if you believe that the person driving the car that hit you or your loved one was under the influence of alcohol. Don’t wait to bring up this fact until it is too late. The faster you report your suspicions, the more likely police are to get an accurate blood alcohol reading on the driver.
Alcohol may be involved if you or a witness observed the following preceding the accident:
- Swerving: this includes fast lane changes and moving back and forth over yellow stripes
- Slow or fast driving
- Reckless driving
