St. Louis Car Accident Lawyer
Driving with a blood alcohol count (BAC) above .08 is illegal in Missouri. Period. Yet every year since records began in 1982, more than 30% of all traffic accidents on Missouri roads have involved alcohol consumption on the part of the driver or passengers in the car responsible for causing the accident.* In many cases, the drivers were charged with a misdemeanor or felony criminal offense for DUI, under Missouri laws.
