Know your limits to avoid driving drunk

The roads of Kentucky see all too many dangerous drivers. Some go too fast, some pay too little attention and many drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. This final group can often be the most dangerous as they may believe that they are safe to drive even though they are not. Furthermore, their intoxication cannot only make them slow to react but can also lead them to drive erratically and unpredictably.

Sadly, the biggest problem with this is that it puts everyone else on the road at risk. As this article on DUI penalties explains, it is important to know your limits and not to take any chances. However, no matter how careful you are personally, you could still find yourself at the mercy of an irresponsible driver. If this results in a crash, not only could your vehicle be in need of repairs, you may be seriously injured.

It is a devastating fact that many of these accidents result in permanent injuries or disabilities, life-long trauma and even death. The survivors are then left wondering where to turn and how they will cover the cost of their medical bills and the time off work they have been forced to take. It is hardly surprising that many decide to seek compensation.

If you have been the victim of a drunk driving accident, it is important to stand your ground. Dangerous drivers must be held accountable for their actions. An attorney may be able to assist you with your case and support you as you pursue the justice and remuneration you deserve.
