South Dakota Alcohol Related Accident Lawyer

In the United States, thousands of accidents can be attributed to the consumption of alcohol. All too often, people choose to drink and then drive vehicles, ride bikes or even operate boats. When someone consumes alcohol, their coordination and ability to make decisions becomes impaired. For this reason, it is illegal to drink and then operate motor vehicles in the U.S.

Perhaps nothing is as negligent as consuming alcohol and then driving, biking or boating. Alcohol related accidents occur with alarming frequency, which is why many states, including South Dakota, have adopted strict DUI laws. Once someone has caused an alcohol related accident, these laws enable law enforcement to press criminal charges. Aside from criminal consequences, people that cause alcohol related accidents may face civil action if they injure or kill another person.

According to U.S. personal injury laws, a person who has been injured by the negligent actions of another is allowed to file claims to collect monetary damages. In order to file these claims, you must be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that their accident was caused by another person’s negligence. In cases involving alcohol consumption, it is generally not difficult to prove that someone was negligent and also very reckless. Still, victims of alcohol related accidents are encouraged to work alongside an experienced personal injury attorney, such as the attorneys at the Helsper, McCarty and Rasmussen Law Firm.
