Rhinelander OWI Accident Lawyers

According to its Department of Transportation, Wisconsin has a higher rate of drunk driving each year than every other state, with over 44,000 convictions.  OWI’s are punished quite severely, yet they clearly do not completely stop people from driving while intoxicated.  Drivers who negligently decide to operate their vehicles despite being impaired put others on the roadway at needless risk of severe injury.

If you or someone you love has been injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver, you may have legal recourse to seek compensation.  The experienced Rhinelander OWI accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. are passionately committed to helping our clients to protect their rights and interests.

Effects of Alcohol on Driving

Safely operating a vehicle requires the driver to maintain mental and physical control at all times.  Alcohol not only affects a person’s ability to think clearly but also is likely to have a negative effect upon their motor control and responsiveness.  Several faculties that are necessary for driving that can be compromised by inebriation are:

  • Alertness
  • Response time
  • Vision
  • Steering and pedal control
  • Reasoning and decision making

When people choose to drive after drinking, they must be held accountable for the consequences of their actions.
