Dublin Drunk Driving Lawyer
Drunk or impaired driving involves operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that drunk driving deaths have risen recently in the United States, and more people have suffered serious injuries as a result of crashes caused by drunk drivers. When a drunk driver causes a motor vehicle collision, it is important to find out more about seeking compensation through an insurance claim or by filing a lawsuit against the drunk driver.

Learning More About Drunk Driving in Dublin
Drunk driving kills, and drunk drivers can be held accountable. The following are some facts concerning drunk driving from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
- 32 people are killed every day, on average, in the U.S. due to drunk driving;
- Even a single drink can result in a drunk driving crash depending upon the facts of the case;
- About 30 percent of all traffic deaths in the U.S. involve intoxicated drivers; and
- Rate of drunk driving in Ohio is slightly higher than the national average, especially for drivers aged 21 and up.
How to Prove Drunk Driving in a Dublin Lawsuit
There are multiple ways you may be able to prove drunk driving in order to win a lawsuit against a drunk driver. Common forms of evidence in drunk driving cases include:
- Police report;
- Arrest report for drunk driver, including results of a breathalyzer test that show a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher;
- Witness statements, which may be able to prove that the drunk driver was swerving, veering into and out of lanes, slowing down and speeding up without explanation, and engaging in other signs of drunk driving;
- Report from an accident reconstruction expert who analyzes data from the accident scene, including photographs, to reconstruct the accident; and
- Expert testimony.
It is important to keep in mind that you must file a lawsuit before the statute of limitations runs out. If you were injured yourself in a drunk driving crash, Ohio law will likely require that you file your lawsuit within two years from the date of the drunk driving crash. If you lost a loved one in a drunk driving collision, the statute of limitations is still two years, but the clock will instead begin to tick on the date of your loved one’s death.
