Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Sutcliffe
Just outside of Reno’s urban sprawl is the small, census-designated community of Sutcliffe, which is a part of Washoe County.
Sutcliffe is located to the north of two of Nevada’s major cities, Reno and Carson City. The community is positioned along Pyramid Lake, which is just a short distance away from the California state line. The community itself is small, measuring approximately 10 square miles, with a population of roughly 250 people. Although the town is somewhat off the beaten path, it’s proximity to Interstate 80 and State Route 295 make it easily accessible to the surrounding areas.
Regardless of community size, there is always the risk of an road accident, including those involving drugs or alcohol. People occasionally make the poor choice to drive while under the influence, and the Sutcliffe area, like most places in the country, is no stranger to DUI-related incidents.
DUI-Related Incidents in Sutcliffe
Incidents involving a DUI or some other form of driver impairment make up the most common driving infractions. Operating a vehicle in an impaired state – especially due to drugs and/or alcohol – is an extremely dangerous risk, and situations where people drive under the influence too often result in a tragic outcome.
Injuries in DUI cases can be fatal or non-fatal, and victims and their loved ones face life-long consequences, both physically and emotionally. In the United States:
- A DUI-related injury occurs every two minutes
- A DUI-related death occurs every 30 minutes
It is important to note that impairment is not limited to alcohol intake. Many substances can impair a driver’s ability to properly operate a vehicle. As a result, the guidelines regarding DUI cases have become quite strict, with operation of a vehicle strictly prohibited if the operator is under the influence of:
- Illegal drugs
- Certain prescription drugs
