Accident and Injury Laws

There are many laws for vehicle accidents that goes from traffic to personal injury laws. The law deals with all types of motor vehicle accidents from minor fender benders to serious collisions.
Driving Under the Influence
Driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) is a class A misdemeanor that affects drivers and persons who are legally intoxicated and also has serious impacts on safety on our roads and highways.
DUI involves an individual using or consuming alcohol in a motor vehicle while operating that vehicle.
When a person is convicted of DUI, the court must also order that individual to participate in an alcohol treatment program and must conduct a breath alcohol test to determine if the defendant is under the influence of alcohol.
During the drunk driving investigation, the police must first determine if the defendant is intoxicated. The defendant will then need to be tested.
After an officer has the defendant’s breath tested and determines that the defendant is drunk or has a blood alcohol concentration above the legal limit, the police must then notify the arresting officer that the defendant is on a substance abuse program. When a defendant has received a notice from the court and successfully completed a treatment program, a judge may then release the defendant.
Accident Reconstruction
As a part of accident reconstruction, the police are not only concerned with the personal injuries resulting from the accident, but also with maintaining the integrity of the roadway and the roadway infrastructure that you are on, and if the accidents involve motorcycle getting a specialized lawyer could be the best choice, visit their website to learn more about this.
In accident reconstruction, an officer examines the scene of an accident and explores other sites where damage can be determined, such as the area that you were located on and nearby objects. The officer also listens to evidence, such as the driver’s conversations and observations, to determine if anything warrants further investigation.
The investigation continues after the accident and may include:
visiting places or observing vehicles on the accident scene
interviewing witnesses
reviewing witnesses’ statements to determine if there are any additional victims of the accident
researching sources of damage to the roadway, including signs and landscaping
enlisting members of the community in the investigation by taking photos of the scene of the accident, interviewing individuals in the same area and examining any other places in the community that may also have damage to the roadway
When a police officer determines that a particular person or vehicle is a potential source of the accident and that they had been involved, they contact the Department of Transportation and Inspections (DOT&I), who conducts a quality control analysis to determine if the equipment on the road is safe to operate.
After DOT&I is satisfied that the equipment is safe, the officer will notify the affected parties to call them back.
When possible, the officer will examine any vehicles that were involved in the accident.
When possible, the officer will inspect the roadway and plant cameras so that he can review the scene when he makes a traffic stop.
After the accident reconstruction, the officer will conduct a thorough investigation to determine if the accident was intentional or inadvertent.
