Driving under the influence of alcohol is a serious offense and is the direct cause of many wrongful deaths in Michigan. In the state of Michigan, any driver with blood-alcohol absorption (BAC) above .08 percent is considered intoxicated under the law.
The number of Michigan car accidents related to alcohol consumption is enormous and even when not fatal; injuries from those accidents are often catastrophic. Statistics reveal the largest number of Michigan accidents involving alcohol occur on Saturdays and Sundays.
It is very important that the investigation in to an alcohol related accident begin quickly. This is in large part because the law also requires the bar or restaurant where the alcohol was served to be notified of the accident and resultant injuries within a specific time frame. A delay in beginning the investigation could mean the time limit for pursuing legal action against the bar expires.
