OUI and Commercial Drivers
Massachusetts law holds commercial truck drivers to a higher standard for blood alcohol levels than regular non-commercial drivers. The legal blood alcohol level limit for commercial drivers is .04%. This is half of what the legal limit for non-commercial drivers is, so many drivers accustom to having a couple beers with dinner could wind up with an OUI. Penalties are also much higher for commercial drivers driving under the influence.
Common Injuries in Drunk Driving Accidents
Commercial trucks can cause severe injuries to those involved in the accidents due to their size. Injuries incurred after a drunk truck driving accident can range from moderate to catastrophic, life-altering injuries or even death. Many truck accident victims are lucky to walk away with their lives, only to find they will forever suffer a decreased quality of life.
Common truck accident injuries include:
- Broken Bones
- Neck Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries/Paralysis
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Wrongful Death
