What does Intoxication mean?

Intoxication occurs when an individual consumes alcohol at a high enough level to cause behavioral and physical changes. Common affects of high alcohol concentration or intoxication can include: loss of memory, slurred speech, loss of balance, lethargy, loss of inhibition and death. Drivers are intoxicated in every state if their blood alcohol concentration is 0.08% or higher, although drivers can be arrested for DUI or driving under the influence of alcohol at any blood alcohol concentration level if they are unable to safely operate their vehicle. Intoxication is a known factor in many car accidents. If you have been arrested for intoxicated driving, contact a car accident or DUI lawyer.
