Drunk driving accidents destroy the lives of almost 11,000 families every year, according to Mothers Against Drunk Driving. When a driver who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs chooses to get behind the wheel of a car, he or she puts everyone on the road at risk of serious injury and even wrongful death. However, victims have rights, including the right to pursue financial compensation from the party responsible for the accident. If you or a loved one has been injured in a drunk driving accident, attorney J. Todd Tenge, serving Boulder, Denver, and Fort Collins areas, can help. Contact the Tenge Law Firm, LLC at (303) 502-5587 today to schedule a complimentary consultation.

About Drunk Driving Accidents

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 30 million Americans drive drunk in an average year. Driving while intoxicated impairs one’s ability to drive safely and responsibly, and increases the chances of a motor vehicle accident.

Colorado has two levels of alcohol-related driving offenses – Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI). Both are based on the measurement of blood alcohol concentration in the body. Someone who is accused of driving under the influence (DUI) has allegedly consumed alcohol and/or drugs to the point where they are substantially incapable of operating their vehicle safely. Someone driving while their ability is impaired (DWAI) has consumed drugs and/or alcohol and is less able than an ordinary person to safely operate their vehicle.

Driving with a blood alcohol content level (BAC) above .08 is illegal in the state of Colorado, and amounts to DUI. While there are criminal penalties for drunk driving (e.g., fines, imprisonment, and public service requirements), the Tenge Law Firm, LLC specializes in pursuing financial compensation in civil court, possibly including punitive damages, from the responsible party.
