According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), In 2010, more than 10,000 people died in alcohol-impaired driving crashes – one every 51 minutes.
Alcohol is among many of the substances that someone can be charged with in a DUI accident. Though other drugs can cause serious accidents due to impairment, alcohol is the leading cause of DUI-related accidents. You could be the most cautious driver on the roads, but when someone makes the choice to get into a car after consuming alcohol, they put everyone at risk of being involved in an accident that could cause serious injury or even death. If you’ve been injured in an accident involving drugs or alcohol, contact us immediately to speak to an attorney at Halepaska Law.
In the state of Colorado the legal limit for blood alcohol content (BAC) is .05. If you are not of legal age to drink the limit is much lower. Regardless of the laws, every day people get into their vehicle and drive after consuming alcohol. When someone makes this choice, it is the hope of everyone on the road that they are intercepted by authorities and charged with DUI before they injure someone in an accident, but of course, this is not always the case. Too many times an impaired motorist makes several bad choices and ends up changing someone’s life for the worse, or even ending their life. When this is the case, the victim or victim’s family need representation to make sure justice is served.

Have I got a case?
Let’s talk about it. Telephone our office to speak to a personal injury specialist.
How much will it cost me to bring a DUI accident claim?
In most cases you will pay nothing at all whether your case is successful or not.
Is there a time limit?
Yes. In most cases three years, but there are exceptions. Now is the best time to act.
In most cases? What are the exceptions?
In high risk or complex cases we may agree with you from the outset that a success fee of up to 25% may be charged. This will not be payable if your claim is unsuccessful.
Will I have to go to court?
Probably not. Most cases settle. We often need to issue court proceedings to move matters along but it is rare for a case to go all the way to trial.
