Drunk Driving Accident Victim Lawyers
Personal Injury Lawyers Serving Tucson, Phoenix, Flagstaff and all Arizona cities and communities
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is an extremely dangerous act. Drunk drivers lose full control over their bodies’ coordination and ability to fully and promptly react to situations. Their perception is also inhibited, which affects their ability to judge speed and proximity. All of these factors, especially when considered together, indicate that inebriated motor vehicle operators pose a risk to themselves and anyone else on or near the road. Statistics have proven this fact as well; on an annual basis, tens of thousands of individuals are killed by drunk drivers.
If you have sustained an injury from a drunk driving wreck, then you deserve to pursue damages for your pain.

Alcohol’s Effects on the Body

- Motor skills
- Information processing
Any sort of debilitative effects that these processes undergo severely alter one’s ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. If you have been a victim of a drunk driver, please contact the Tucson and Phoenix personal injury lawyers of Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.C. today.
