A driver who operates a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs may experience impaired physical, mental and/or motor function. This may lead to a violated traffic law or other behavior that causes an auto accident or may make a drunk driver unable to avoid becoming involved in a collision that has already occurred.

financial compensation that will help you rebuild and move on with your life. Our law firm can help you with your insurance claim to seek the full compensation you may be entitled to receive. We are committed to protecting the rights of injured parties throughout Seattle and the surrounding areas and are ready to seek justice on your behalf.
How Seattle Drunk Drivers Can Cause Car Accidents
A drunk driver may cause a car accident because his or her judgment is impaired. A drunk driver may drive carelessly or completely recklessly, speeding, running through red lights or weaving in and out of traffic. A drunk driver's reaction time will also be delayed. This means that he or she will be slower to respond to a change in traffic or obstacle in the road. The combination of impaired motor and mental function makes drunk driving extremely dangerous, even if a driver is technically below the legal limit.
