Nevada driver suspected to be impaired at time of deadly crash

Of the car accidents that are seemingly senseless, those involving intoxicated or drunk driving are particularly cringe-worthy. All other factors aside, it would appear that any car accident, and the resulting injuries, could have been prevented had the driver chosen to get behind the wheel sober. Because your physical and mental state is affected by alcohol, this is a legitimate claim. The legal way to state this claim is by filing a personal injury suit after you or loved one suffers injury or fatality due to a drunk driving accident.

Did you know that semi-trucks, eighteen-wheelers and other commercial trucks are held to a higher standard of safety and regulation than are the average passenger-vehicle driver? This is due to the higher potential for injury that truck accidents have been known to cause. Truck accident injury sufferers often complain, and rightly so, of the serious injuries they sustained in a trucking accident. In order to help determine the cause or causes behind a truck accident, it can be helpful to look towards federal trucking regulations that govern all type of truck driver, owner and maintenance behaviors that commercial trucks are required to follow.
