DUI Truck Accidents

Call Our Experienced Wichita Truck Accident Attorneys!

Drunk and drugged driving is still a huge problem on the roadways today. Despite the substantial penalties for driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol, people are still caught driving with a high blood alcohol concentration (BAC). Many of these individuals are involved in automobile accidents they could have avoided had they sobered up before driving home.

While penalties for DUIs are significantly higher for truck drivers, they are still caught driving commercial motor vehicles (CMV) with a high BAC or under the influence of some kind of controlled substance. If you were injured in an accident with a drunk or drugged CMV driver, give us a call as soon as possible. Our attorneys at Hutton & Hutton Law Firm, LLC have been helping people seek compensation for their injuries since 1979.

Get started on your case by calling us at (316) 688-1166.

Laws on DUIs

State law regulates how high a truck driver’s BAC can be. Laws tend to be more stringent for CMV drivers, who are responsible for maintaining the largest vehicles on the road. A CMV can weigh anywhere from 10,000 to 80,000 pounds.

Even a fully aware driver may have difficulty maneuvering a vehicle of that size if it suddenly needs to stop for an obstacle in the road. Those under the influence of drugs or alcohol are at a severe disadvantage in the same situation. In Kansas, drivers can’t have a BAC over 0.04%; otherwise, they will be charged with a DUI.

Let Us Help You Seek Compensation

You have a good chance of getting compensation for your injuries and property damage if your accident was caused by a truck driver DUI. CMV drivers under the influence are taking a severe risk with the health of other people on the road and with their own careers.

One of the penalties for a DUI is license suspension, which could prevent a truck driver from doing his or her job. If the accident caused you catastrophic injury, don’t pay for someone else’s negligence. Let our skilled Wichita truck accident attorneys help you file a claim against the truck driver.
