Alcohol diminishes brain functioning, causing drunk drivers to have slow reaction times and difficulty judging the distance between their automobiles and other objects and vehicles on the road. Drinking and driving while intoxicated can result in serious, often fatal, accidents on Colorado’s roadways. Surviving family members who have lost loved ones in drunk driving accidents want justice for their loss. An experienced Boulder injury attorney can help loved ones hold the irresponsible drunk driver responsible for their family member’s death and also seek compensation from the bars, restaurants or breweries, that served alcohol to the intoxicated driver.
