Learning to drive is an exciting experience. As a teenager, it may be the first right of passage that one passes through on the road to adulthood. The chance to get behind the wheel and go as far as your gas tank will allow is at once liberating and overwhelming. Suddenly, the whole world has stretched out before you.

It is common knowledge that DUI laws vary from state to state. And, as a result, the way that offenders are prosecuted is just as variable. Whether this is a good or a bad thing is neither here nor there. It is simply the way the system works and something we should all be aware of.

Most people who drive are well aware of the dangers associated with drinking and operating a motor vehicle. Many of those who drink claim to “know their limits” when it comes to how many drinks it takes to get them “drunk.” It is important to keep in mind, however, that although an individual may not “feel” drunk, his or her blood alcohol content (BAC) may still be over the legal limit (which is currently .08 percent).

Of course, Jordan Levine and other Denver accident lawyers welcome and applaud all efforts taken to ensure everyone’s safety on the road.

The effects of marijuana usage on driving have been discussed by lawmakers and safety advocates all across the country. In Colorado, the U.S. Office of National Drug Control Policy’s program, The Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA), released a report regarding marijuana use in Colorado.

The ultimate goal of the report is to demonstrate the general effect of the state’s legalization of marijuana (both medical and recreational).

As part of a personal injury case, it is not uncommon for witnesses to be required to give depositions. So, what is a deposition? Depositions consist of witness testimony that is generally given away from the courtroom. They are used as part of the discovery process in an effort to gather more information that can be used in court (if necessary). The deposition can be videotaped and/or it may be transcribed into written form by a court reporter or transcriptionist.

Accidents, regardless of whether they are head-on collisions, side-impact crashes or rollover crashes, often have an unimaginable effect on everyone involved, especially if those involved in the crash sustain serious injuries. We have discussed the serious nature of rollover accidents involving passenger vehicles in the past, but even some rollovers are more serious than others -- particularly if they involve cargo tanker trucks.
For many accident victims, knowing what to do next is often a major concern, along with making certain they obtain the just compensation to which they may be entitled. While some individuals may attempt to handle their own cases, our Denver auto accident attorneys strongly encourage anyone who has been involved in an accident to work with an accident lawyer who is well prepared to handle the case and will work hard to see that justice is served for you and your loved ones.
