Motor vehicle accidents caused
by drunk drivers are among the most senseless and entirely preventable of all traffic accidents. Indeed,

Drunk Driver Accidents in Utah
Las Vegas, Henderson, Pahrump, or Reno
Drunk drivers face two types of
liability for causing accidents that seriously injure or kill others. The first type of liability is criminal liability.
Drunk drivers can face serious felony DUI charges, including DUI causing injury or death, and several years behind bars if convicted.
The second type of liability
is civil liability. Individuals hurt in accidents caused by drunk drivers can bring personal injury lawsuits to recover
compensation for their injuries. The loved ones of persons killed in accidents caused by drunk drivers can do the same with
wrongful death lawsuits. It is important to note drunk drivers can still be held civilly liable even if they manage to avoid
a criminal conviction.

Injuries If Hit by Drunk Driver in Utah/Nevada
In many drunk driving accidents,
the driver is too inebriated to avoid direct impact upon collision, or hit the breaks to mitigate the force of impact. As
a result, drunk driving accidents tend to cause terrible injuries—or worse. Potential consequences include:
- Serious spinal cord injury
- Neck injury
- Traumatic brain injury
- Broken bones
