DUIs In Alabama: What You Need To Know

According to AL Code § 32-5A-191, “A person shall not drive or be in actual physical control of any vehicle while:

  1. There is 0.08 percent or more by weight of alcohol in his or her blood;
  2. Under the influence of alcohol;
  3. Under the influence of a controlled substance to a degree which renders him or her incapable of safely driving;
  4. Under the combined influence of alcohol and a controlled substance to a degree which renders him or her incapable of safely driving; or
  5. Under the influence of any substance which impairs the mental or physical faculties of such person to a degree which renders him or her incapable of safely driving.”

That means if there’s 0.08 blood alcohol content (BAC) in the driver’s body, they shouldn’t drive. If a drunk driver does hurt other people in their vehicle, they could be charged with a crime.

Can I Still Bring A Civil Case Even If The Defendant Was Charged With A DUI Or Vehicular Manslaughter?

Yes, as these are two separate legal proceedings, you can still bring a case against that person – even if they have been convicted of a crime.
