Signs that a driver is impaired by alcohol or drugs

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.

Since bicyclists are inherently vulnerable, a crash can result in serious injuries and death.
