Unfortunately, many car accidents involve drivers who are under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. These impaired drivers expose themselves to both civil and criminal liability, and our legal system takes driving while under the influence very seriously. Under a legal doctrine known as negligence per se, an individual who violates a law or regulation designed to prevent the resulting type of harm is found to be negligent as a matter of law. This creates a situation in which drunk drivers are automatically found to be liable for injuries that result from an accident they cause.
Some of the most common causes of car accidents include:
