Determining A Driver’s Impairment

When a person is pulled over because of drunk driving, or if they have gotten into an accident while under the influence of alcohol, the person’s Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) is usually used to determine whether they were over the legal amount of alcohol to be operating a vehicle.

BAC is measured by the weight of alcohol in a certain volume of a person’s blood. A person’s impairment and their risk of an accident greatly increases when their blood alcohol concentration is at .08 grams of alcohol per deciliter (g/dL) of blood. It is illegal in all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico to drive with a BAC of .08 or higher but even a small amount of alcohol can have negative impacts on a person’s ability to drive safely.

2,017 people died in 2016, in alcohol-related crashes where drivers had BACs of .01 to .07 g/dL.

A person’s blood alcohol level can be measured with a portable breathalyzer, or through blood or urine samples analyzed in a qualified lab.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
