How can I prove the other driver was drunk at the time of the accident?

How can I prove the other driver was drunk at the time of the accident

Proving that the other driver was drunk at the time of the accident requires gathering evidence and using various sources to establish their impairment. A drunk driving accident lawyer has the resources needed to investigate the collision and obtain vital evidence needed to prove that the other driver was intoxicated at the time of the collision.


What Evidence Can Be Used to Prove the Other Motorist Was Intoxicated at the Time of the Accident?

Here are some steps to help you build a case to demonstrate that the other driver was driving under the influence:

Police report. Obtain a copy of the police report from the accident. The police report may include observations made by the responding officers, such as the driver's behavior, any signs of intoxication, and the results of field sobriety tests.

Breathalyzer or blood test results. If the police conducted a breathalyzer or blood test at the scene or later at a medical facility, the results will be included in the police report or in the official records of the incident.

Witness statements. Collect statements from any witnesses who observed the other driver's behavior before or after the accident. Witnesses may have seen the driver consuming alcohol, stumbling, slurring words, or displaying other signs of impairment.

Video footage. Look for any available video footage from surveillance cameras, traffic cameras, or nearby businesses that may have captured the accident or the other driver's actions leading up to it.

Accident scene evidence. Take photos of the accident scene, including any open containers of alcohol in the other driver's vehicle, or any other evidence that suggests intoxication.

Field sobriety tests. If possible, gather information about the field sobriety tests administered by the police at the scene. These tests are designed to detect impairment and can be crucial evidence.

Medical records. Obtain the other driver's medical records related to the accident. These records may indicate any toxicology tests performed and show the presence of alcohol or drugs in their system.

Admission of guilt. If the other driver admits to being drunk at the time of the accident, document this information as it can serve as strong evidence of their impairment.

Expert testimony. In some cases, expert witnesses, such as accident reconstruction experts or toxicologists, may be called upon to analyze the evidence and provide their professional opinion on the other driver's impairment.

Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
