If you have any second thoughts about driving, don’t. Have a friend drive you home, call a friend, or call a cab. Don’t worry about your car, it is not as important as human life, and will probably be in better condition if you don’t drive it drunk. Also, don’t let friends drive drunk either, if they are stubborn, take the keys from them. It is a good idea to make agreements with your friends about not letting each other get in a car intoxicated. If you have party, and someone who gets intoxicated at your party is involved in an accident, it may involve a lawsuit.

But a good lawyer will not just rest on what the driver says at the deposition. The lawyer might also subpoena the driver’s cell phone records just to be sure. If the phone records show a phone call or a text at around the time of the accident, that is strong evidence that the driver was not paying attention to the road. Where the driver was looking before the accident is also significant. Perhaps someone might have observed whether the driver was looking forward or perhaps looking down (and possibly texting).
