Drinking and driving or driving under the influence (“DUI”), is typically the cause of some of the most horrendous accidents that can happen. When coupled with a motorcycle and very little protection, the results can be horrifying and catastrophic. These motorcyclists have a tremendously increased risk of severe injury and even death due to their lack of protection. Consequently, extreme care must be taken on the road when riding a motorcycle. When driving under the influence, an individual is a danger to themselves and all others on the road.Drunk Drivers are Civilly Liable for Causing a Motorcycle Accident
All drivers on the road owe a duty of care to each other once they enter the roadway. By driving under the influence, these individuals breach the duty of care owed to the fellow drivers on the road. By breaching this duty, it is possible that the driver can found civilly liable even if there has been no criminal conviction. This means that you may still be able to recover compensation even if the individual is not convicted. In Massachusetts, if you are over the age of 21, a blood alcohol concentration level of over .08 can result in a DUI or OUI. If you are under-age, these is almost zero tolerance at .02. Further, if you have a licensed commercial driver, you are held to a limit of .04.Helpful Evidence of a Motorcycle DUI Accident
It is imperative that you seek immediate medical attention if you have been injured in an accident. The injuries sustained must be treated properly, promptly, and effectively. The medical treatment serves to both get you back in good health as well as serving as proper evidence of your injuries to assist you in your claim for compensation. Helpful evidence can include:
- Photos of your injury
- Photos of the accident
- Photos of damage to your property
