Sheboygan DUI / DWI Accident Attorneys
When a drunk driver takes to the road, their reckless actions endanger each person near them, whether they are a fellow motorist or a pedestrian on the sidewalk. Considering the major loss of mental faculties due to the effects of alcohol, a driver may pose a greater threat than they believe, making DUI prevention a difficult task. Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) is prosecuted as a serious offense in Wisconsin, yet innocent drivers may still encounter negligent and intoxicated individuals on the roadway.

Drunkenness on the Road
Many people are aware that alcohol consumption can impair driving ability but they might not appreciate the variety of ways in which this problem might occur. The following are some of the significant ways that alcohol can affect a driver’s competence:
- Limited reaction time
- Compromised motor control or loss of sensation
- Unexpected changes in mood
- An overall lack of inhibitions or reasonable judgment
- Compromised sight or hearing
- Strong feelings of fatigue
A drunk driver is a dangerous driver. Without the ability to make quick, correct decisions, an otherwise avoidable crash might become a devastating accident.
If you have been injured by a drunk driver, you may be entitled to pursue legal action independent of any criminal charges that may be filed in the matter. For more information, contact the Sheboygan DUI / DWI accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, today at 800-242-2874.
