Who is at Fault in a DUI Accident?

If a driver is intoxicated, he or she will not be driving conscientiously or safely. Therefore, it is highly unlikely that a driver who had an alcohol test and was found to have an alcohol level of .08 or over is not the cause of an automobile accident. Driving while intoxicated is dangerous because of drivers' slow reaction time, not recognizing traffic signals and signs, impaired judgment, and reckless driving.
