If you are involved in an accident with a drunk driver, one of the things that officers may ask of the other driver and possibly you as well is to submit to a series of tests to determine whether either of you are intoxicated. A number of these test revolve around your blood alcohol concentration.
The legal limit in all 50 states is 0.08 percent. If your BAC is at or above this level, you could be charged. At the same time, if the other driver is found to be over the limit, you may be able to claim compensation. Drunk drivers endanger themselves and everyone on the road around them, so it is entirely understandable that you might want to pursue legal proceedings if you are involved in a DUI accident.
