OUI Motorcycle Accidents
OUI motorcycle accidents in Maine demand aggressive representation
Despite public awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving, motorists continue to get behind the wheel while intoxicated and endanger others on the road, including motorcyclists. Drivers 21 and older with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or more are considered to be legally drunk. (Commercial truck drivers are considered legally drunk if their BAC is .04 percent or more and anyone under 21 is legally drunk if any amount of alcohol is detected.)
Drunk drivers pose a serious threat to all motorists. Motorcycle riders, however, are particularly vulnerable to serious injuries if struck by a drunk driver. A motorist who is driving under the influence (OUI) lacks judgment and may fail to stop for a red light and strike a motorcycle rider in an intersection. The result may be severe injuries such as spinal injuries, traumatic brain injuries or even fatal injuries, which may be grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit.
