Your Civil Claim is Separate from Criminal Court

Many people assume that a driver who is convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) will be sentenced to repay all the damages they caused to others in a drunk driving accident. Unfortunately, many people are incorrect in this assumption. The criminal justice system is deliberately separate from the civil court system that will accept your personal injury claim against the drunk driver. A conviction does not guarantee your claim will end in your favor, but it certainly doesn’t hurt your claim’s chances, either.

A portion of our team at the Law Office of James E. Farmer, LLC works on criminal defense cases. When we accept a drunk driving accident claim for an injured plaintiff, we can use their unique backgrounds and insight to your claim’s advantage. We can review how the conviction was reached and the evidence that backed it to boost the argument used in your injury claim.

In Maryland, the statute of limitations on a drunk driving accident claim is three years after the date of the collision. A typical DUI criminal case will conclude in a matter of months or less. We can probably wait for the criminal case to end before filing your claim, which allows us to structure your civil claim around the available evidence and/or conviction.

How Does Alcohol Contribute to Car Accidents?

A major piece of evidence we would like to be able to use for your drunk driving accident claim is the other driver’s recorded blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level at the time of your crash. The higher the BAC level, the more alcohol would have been affecting that person’s ability to drive safely.

People with the following BAC levels usually experience the following issues while driving:

  • 0.02: Slowed reaction time and become easily distracted.
  • 0.04: Worsened visual acuity, foggy thoughts, and all previous issues.
  • 0.06: Greatly slowed reaction time, difficulty driving in a straight line, and all previous issues.
  • 0.08: Unpredictable driving, inability to measure speed and/or distance, and all previous issues.
  • Above 0.08: Massively slowed reaction time, completely erratic speed and lane control, and all previous issues.

The BAC level of the driver that hit should have been recorded by the police officers who arrived at the scene of your accident. Our attorneys can help obtain that information, study it, and use it to raise the other driver’s liability as much as possible.
