Drunk driving is one of the leading causes of car accidents recorded in Arizona. Under Arizona law, the legal limit for blood alcohol content is set at 0.08 percent for non-commercial drivers, while the BAC for commercial vehicle drivers is set at 0.04 percent.
Traumatic brain injury refers to any external injury suffered to the head and brain due to a blow or hit. Arizona law, however, does not recognize any congenital brain disease or impairment as a brain injury. Brain injury may lead to temporary or permanent disability, and it may often impair cognitive functions, as well as psychological functions and motor abilities.
Car accidents continue to be a major problem on Arizona highways. Various reasons exist for these accidents, including ignoring traffic signals, driving distracted, driving while talking or texting on a cell phone and driving under the influence or while intoxicated. Arizona has stringent laws against distracted driving and violation of traffic laws is generally not tolerated.
Car accidents have become a growing cause of concern for many Americans. Many cases of serious injuries are caused every year by car accidents. There are also many cases of distracted driving, driving while intoxicated and driving under the influence that are reported annually.
