Three injured in alleged DUI auto accident

The roads in Nevada can be treacherous for many reasons. While recklessness, distraction, speeding and negligence are some of the most common reasons for an auto accident, drunk driving remains one of the biggest concerns. When drivers are under the influence, their reaction time is slowed, their judgment is impaired and they are liable to cause a crash with injuries and fatalities. They then might make the situation worse by choosing to flee the scene. When people have been hurt in an accident caused by a drunk driver, filing a legal claim for compensation might be necessary.

According to recent reports, three people were injured after their GMC was rear-ended by an alleged drunk driver. The accident happened on Christmas at shortly after 5 p.m. The GMC was heading west when it was hit by a speeding Dodge truck. The impact sent the vehicles into three others. The 42-year-old driver of the Dodge exited the vehicle and fled. Citizens assisted in locating him and he was arrested. He faces charges of drunk driving, leaving the scene of an accident, driving while his license was revoked, speeding and having an open container. Two of the people in the GMC were critically hurt. The investigation is continuing.

When there is any kind of auto accident, there will be problems for those who were injured, especially if the injuries are critical. Even if they survive, their lives can be changed in myriad ways with massive medical expenses, the inability to function as they did before, problems holding a regular job and the need for assistance to perform basic tasks. Oftentimes, they need assistance from family members, leading to financial and personal strain. A legal filing may help them recover compensation for all they have lost in drunk driving accidents.
