Great Gold vs. Great White: Possible Workers’ Compensation Case?

Krasnolaw.net

Worker's Compensation related to Michael Phelp's Shark Race

Attorneys debate the possible workers’ compensation case in Phelps vs. Shark on Discovery Channel’s Shark Week in the event of a shark attack.

Potential catastrophic events could make this race fraught with legal issues. Any one of our attorneys could navigate these dangerous and murky issues in court.”

— Jason Krasno, CEO

PHILADELPHIA, UNITED STATES, July 21, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Discovery Channel’s highly anticipated Shark Week begins this Sunday, July 23rd, kicking it off with Phelps vs. Shark: Great Gold vs. Great White.

*Que the Jaws Theme Song* because in honor of Discovery Channel's Shark Week, we’re diving into the open waters of workers’ compensation and taking a bite out of benefits.

Discovery Channel’s annual, weeklong Shark Week features shark-based programming, originally devoted to conservation efforts and correcting misconceptions about sharks. Shark Week has been the longest-running cable television programming event in history, reaching an average of 2.5 million viewers throughout the week.

To kick off the most anticipated week of the year, 39 world record holder and 23 Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps, will be competing against a Great White shark in a 100-meter, open-water race off the coast of Cape Town, South Africa.

In one of the promotional teasers for the Shark Week special, a narrator states “One trained to be the best since the day he was born. The other has been perfected by evolution” leaving viewers eager to find out who will be named the winner in The Battle for Ocean Supremacy.

But this left the attorneys at Krasno Krasno & Onwudinjo with the question, if something were to go unplanned during the filming of this race that resulted in a shark attack, would Phelps be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits and would the injuries sustained qualify as on the job?

According to statistics, more shark attacks result in a loss of limb rather than death, but swimmers are among those who are most prone to being attacked. So, by filming this special in the open-water, already put Phelps at an increased risk of being attacked by a shark.

To try and answer the question of whether or not Phelps would qualify for workers’ compensation benefits for sustaining a shark attack related injury, we referred to the basic components of a justifiable workers’ compensation case.

1. The injured party must be an employee of that company
2. The injury or illness must be work-related
3. The employer must have workers’ compensation insurance

The attorneys dissected this case further relating it back to the eligibility requirements of a workers’ compensation case and concluded that determining whether Phelps would be entitled to receiving compensation benefits in the event of a shark attack while filming the race, would come down to the factor of if Phelps is considered an employee of Discovery Channel at the time of the injury.

If Phelps had a legally-binding contract of employment with Discovery Channel during the time that the shark attack occurred, then the injury sustained would be considered on the job, qualifying him to receive compensation for wage loss benefits in addition to medical expenses. The amount of compensation he could receive would depend on the extent of the shark attack injury.

In contrast, if Phelps were only considered a guest of Discovery Channel and not an employee, then that would not make him eligible to receive any benefits to compensate for his injury.

Looking at Phelps’s case from a legal perspective, another type of case could consequently arise from a shark attack injury during the filming of the race.

If a third-party other than Discovery Channel was involved in the filming of the race and were held responsible for the action that resulted in the shark attack, or for neglecting to take action that could have prevented the injury, then Phelps would have a personal injury case.

With a third-party claim, Phelps could pursue benefits above the compensation provided through workers’ compensation. To receive those benefits, he would have to prove that his injury sustained from the shark attack was the result of negligence by the third-party.

In the case of Michael Phelps, the neglectful third party could be the boating company that issued the use of the boat to Discovery Channel, or the captain of the boat who took Phelps to the spot in where the shark attack occurred.

Not only would Phelps have a workers’ compensation case, but so would other personnel involved in the filming of the Shark Week special.

A team of fifteen divers and camera operators entered the open-water of Cape Town, South Africa and were positioned around Phelps to provide increased protection and distraction if necessary. Scientists were also sent out into the depths of the open water to gather supporting data on Great Whites, required to debunk the question who is faster: Great Gold or Great White?

The same three components of a justifiable workers’ compensation case can be used to determine the eligibility of the divers and scientists. In the event of an injury sustained from a shark attack, would these divers and scientists be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits? Are these divers and scientists legal employees of Discovery Channel, qualifying them for benefits to compensate the shark attack injury? If so, what benefits would they be entitled to? Or would a third-party be held responsible due to negligence, giving the divers and scientist a personal injury case?

It’s doubtful that Discovery Channel would ever actually put the Olympian in any risky situation that could potentially result in a personnel loss, but it does possess an interesting topic on the extent of workers’ compensation coverage for on the job injuries.

Although shark attacks are uncommon on the job injuries in Pennsylvania, other types of workplace injuries can occur, leaving employees with a loss of wage and medical expenses. The attorneys at Krasno Krasno & Onwudinjo provide representation to help injured workers obtain the full benefits they need and deserve.

New Jersey Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Urges a Navy Veteran with Mesothelioma in New Jersey To Call for Direct Access To New York Attorneys Who Get the Best Compensation Results

Most people with mesothelioma in New Jersey fail to realize-if they want the best compensation they will need to have some of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys assisting them”

— New Jersey Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 21, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The New Jersey Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We are now urging a US Navy Veteran in New Jersey who has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma or their family members to call us anytime at 800-714-0303 to ensure they are talking directly to some of the nation's top mesothelioma attorneys who consistently get the best possible financial compensation claims for their clients. The attorneys we suggest for Navy Veterans with mesothelioma in New Jersey are based in New York City, they are recognized as national leaders in mesothelioma compensation for Navy Veterans and they are extremely dedicated to their clients with this rare cancer." http://NewJersey.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Center fears most people with mesothelioma in New Jersey fail to realize-if they want the best possible mesothelioma compensation they will need to have some of the nation's most skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorneys assisting them. As the group would also explain anytime at 800-714-0303 to a Navy Veteran or person with mesothelioma there is no such thing as the following:

* "A federally sponsored claims center for Navy Veterans or people with mesothelioma. To get the best mesothelioma compensation you need to have one of the nation's most capable fulltime mesothelioma attorneys assisting you.
* "We have lately noticed a cable TV ad talking about class actions and mesothelioma. A class action will not result in a person with confirmed mesothelioma receiving the very best possible financial compensation. Class actions usually benefit lawyers as opposed to the people who have been victimized by something like asbestos.
* "Billions Recovered-Typically law firms that make this claim are middlemen marketing law firms who sell people with mesothelioma to other law firms who actually will do the work on the financial claim.
* "US Navy Mesothelioma Center-"Again the US Navy or the federal government do not sponsor a claims center nor do they assist Navy Veterans with a mesothelioma compensation claim that can be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars or more. However, we do, and if a Navy Veteran or person in New Jersey has been diagnosed can call us anytime at 800-714-0303 to ensure they are talking directly with some of the nation's most qualified mesothelioma attorneys-on the spot." http://NewJersey.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The New Jersey Mesothelioma Victims Center wants to emphasize theirs is a statewide initiative available to a diagnosed Veteran or person anywhere in New Jersey, including communities such as Newark, Jersey City, Paterson, Elizabeth, Edison, Toms River, or Trenton. http://NewJersey.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

For the best possible treatment option in New Jersey, the New Jersey Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following heath care facility with the offer to help a diagnosed victim or their family get to the right physicians at this hospital. The Rutgers University’s Cancer Institute of New Jersey in New Brunswick:
http://www.cinj.org/

According to the CDC, the states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon.

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in New Jersey include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, oil refinery workers, manufacturing or industrial workers, chemical plant workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, mill workers, printers, welders, boiler technicians, or construction workers. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s or 1980’s.

The New Jersey Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “Our services for people with mesothelioma in New Jersey are designed to make certain they get the best possible compensation, and the attorneys we suggest have New Jersey references, as we would like to explain at 800-714-0303.”

NCJFCJ Recognizes Innovation and Impact With 3rd Annual Justice Innovation Awards

The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) announced two honorees of the 3rd annual Justice Innovation Awards

For many years, Judge Connors has shown a remarkable dedication to implementing tribal and community court peacemaking principles to resolve cases.”

— Bridget M. McCormack, Michigan Supreme Court

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, July 20, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — (Reno, Nev.) – The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) announced two honorees of the 3rd annual Justice Innovation Awards recognizing the national Innovator of the Year and the Impact of the Year recipients: the Honorable Timothy Connors of the 22nd Circuit Court in Washtenaw County, Mich. and the Latin American Youth Center in Washington, D.C. The honorees were recognized at the NCJFCJ’s 80th Annual Conference highlighting informative presentations on current and cutting edge topics that inspired, provoked and precipitated discussions about issues facing the juvenile and family court system.

The Innovator of the Year Award honors an active, in-good-standing NCJFCJ member who has inspired, sponsored, promoted or led an innovation or accomplishment of national significance in juvenile justice, child abuse and neglect, family law, and/or domestic violence. The Impact of the Year Award recognizes, from the Annual Conference-host state (Washington, D.C.), an individual, state/local court, law firm, advocacy group, or service provider who has been instrumental in leading or implementing significant improvements or innovations which advance the mission of the NCJFCJ.

“It is our privilege to recognize the outstanding work of both Judge Connors and the team at the Latin American Youth Center,” said Judge Anthony (Tony) Capizzi, NCJFCJ president. “We honor their tireless commitment to improving the lives of children and families, especially those in our justice system. We hope that we can continue to raise awareness of the core issues that affect our nation’s families.”

Judge Connors serves as co-chair of the Michigan Tribal-State-Federal Forum, instrumental in drafting the Michigan Indian Family Preservation Act. In 2013, he was awarded a grant by the Michigan Supreme Court to determine whether tribal peacemaking values and practices could be implemented in a state court system. As presiding judge of the Washtenaw County Peacemaking Court, he has fostered the healing of important relationships among litigants in child welfare, family and probate cases by incorporating Native American peacemaking principles and philosophies in conflict resolution.

“I am forever grateful to the Michigan Supreme Court, the University of Michigan Law School, and now the NCJFCJ for opening this path of Peacemaking and restorative justice in state court systems,” said Judge Connors. “This path is the creation of the collaborative effort of the National American Indian Court Judges Association, the Native American Rights Fund Indigenous Peacemaking Initiative and the Michigan Tribal State Federal Forum to find common ground. This common ground greatly benefits our youth, our families and our communities. I hope all of our states will choose to walk this path together.”

“This is a great national honor that Judge Connors has received, and it is well deserved,” said Bridget M. McCormack, Michigan Supreme Court. “For many years, Judge Connors has shown a remarkable dedication to implementing tribal and community court peacemaking principles to resolve cases. In fact, his court was the first in Michigan to adopt the use of these principles, and his success in this area has prompted other states to take notice. His passion for applying justice in collaborative and innovative ways is nothing short of inspiring.”

“Judge Connors honors and respects the traditions of the tribes and tribal justice systems that provided the foundational knowledge and peacemaking principles for his court,” said Nikki Borchardt Campbell, Executive Director, National American Indian Court Judges Association. “We believe these restorative principles can be beneficial to participants when applied correctly and in the exact manner that Judge Connors has applied them in his court. His court and his approach are shining examples. We are proud of his work and his contribution to both state and tribal courts.”

The Latin American Youth Center’s (LAYC) mission is to empower a diverse population of youth to achieve a successful transition to adulthood, through multi-cultural, comprehensive, and innovative programs that address youths’ social, academic, and career needs. The LAYC works with every young person who comes through their doors, to help them develop the skills and self-confidence they need to make a successful transition to young adulthood. The LAYC offers bilingual programs and services designed to address the multiple needs of the young people and families in the community.

They have services to help youth achieve independent living, job training, substance abuse treatment programs, and a teen mom's program. Their areas of service include: Academics, with year-round tutoring and homework assistance, after-school programs, GED exam preparation and education, and college preparation and retention; Arts and Recreation, offering art and media programs, out-of-school time recreation, and mentoring; Job Readiness, with job preparedness and life skills training, job placement services, internships, and career exploration; Safe Housing, offering short- and long-term family-based and transitional living programs for homeless and runaway youth with special programs for young families and LGBTQ-identifying youth; and Health and Wellness, providing welcoming, non-clinical settings for sexual health education and HIV/STI/pregnancy testing and counseling, mental health and substance use disorders treatment, and parenting skills for young parents.

“The work we do at the Latin American Youth Center is truly a collaboration between compassionate District Court judges like the Honorable Hiram Puig-Lugo who committed to supporting our communities, the dedicated staff of D.C.'s Children and Family Services Administration, and LAYC's team of youth developers and social workers going above and beyond for each youth who comes through our doors,” said Lori M. Kaplain, president and CEO, LAYC. “Together, through innovative and community-based collaboration, we're able to make a real difference in the lives of our most vulnerable youth, in particular for youth of color and immigrant youth. We are truly humbled and appreciative of this award.”

“The Latin American Youth Center has a long and distinguished history of dedicated support for families in the Washington, D.C. area,” said the Honorable Hiram Puig-Lugo, Superior Court of the District of Columbia. Their commitment to service has helped countless immigrant and non-immigrant youth navigate the difficult journey from adolescence into adulthood. They are a valuable, integral and indispensable part of our community.”

Nebraska Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Urges a Construction Worker in Nebraska with Mesothelioma to Call Them About the Lawyers They Will Need for Better Compensation Results

Not only do the mesothelioma attorneys we suggest get the best financial compensation for their clients-they also make house calls and theres no charge for their services unless there is a settlement”

— Nebraska Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 20, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Nebraska Mesothelioma Victims Center is now urging a construction or skilled trades worker in Nebraska who has just been diagnosed with mesothelioma to call them at 800-714-0303 for very honest advice about why it is incredibly vital they hire one of the nation's most skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorneys as opposed to a local car accident lawyer or a personal injury law firm.

Mesothelioma compensation claims are complex and the last thing a diagnosed person such as a construction worker, an electrician, plumber, welder or Navy Veteran needs is a part time mesothelioma attorney or a local attorney who has little or absolutely no experience dealing with a mesothelioma compensation claim or claims as the Center would like to discuss-anytime. http://Nebraska.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Nebraska Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "The mesothelioma attorneys we suggest are experts when it comes to exactly how or where a construction worker, a welder, an electrician, a plumber or any type of skilled tradesmen could have been exposed to asbestos and they know who made the types of products, materials or equipment that contained asbestos. As we would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303 it is this specific type of knowledge that makes an attorneys skill and experience so valuable to a person with this rare cancer and their financial compensation.

"If we had one vital hiring an attorney tip for a construction worker, a skilled tradesman, a Navy Veteran or person with mesothelioma in Nebraska it would be please call us at 800-714-0303 and let’s talk about specific attorneys they should be talking to. Not only do the national caliber mesothelioma attorneys we suggest get the best possible financial compensation for their clients-they also make house calls and there is no charge for their services unless there is a settlement. When we say the attorneys-we suggest get better financial compensation for their mesothelioma clients' we are talking about tens of thousands of dollars or hundreds of thousands of dollars-or more." http://Nebraska.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Nebraska Mesothelioma Victims Center’s services are available throughout the state of Nebraska including communities such as Omaha, Lincoln, Bellevue, Grand Island, Kearney, Fremont, or North Platte.

For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options in Nebraska the Nebraska Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following three heath care facilities with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at each hospital.

* Creighton University Medical Center Omaha, Nebraska: http://www.creighton.edu/CancerCenter/
* University of Nebraska Medical Center Eppley Cancer Center Omaha, Nebraska: http://www.unmc.edu/cancercenter/

Individuals in the state of Nebraska with mesothelioma could have been exposed to asbestos while serving in the US Navy or while working at a power plant, as a plumber, a boiler technician, as an auto repairman, as an electrician, or in the construction industry. In most cases, the exposure to asbestos took place in the 1950′s, 1960′s, 1970′s, or 1980′s. Mesothelioma typically takes three to five decades to develop. http://Nebraska.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The states with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Maine, New Jersey, West Virginia, Florida, Wyoming, and Washington. However, mesothelioma does happen in Nebraska as the Nebraska Mesothelioma Victims Center would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303.

Wisconsin Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Urges an Insider with Proof a Federal Contractor in Wisconsin Is Falsely Claiming to be Minority Owned to Call About Rewards

If you work for a company that is falsely claiming to be a minority or woman owned to business in Wisconsin to get an unfair competitive advantage on federal jobs or federal contract bidding-call us”

— Wisconsin Corporate Whistleblower Center

WASHINGTON , DC, USA, July 20, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Wisconsin Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “We are urging an insider with proof a Wisconsin based federal contractor is lying about being minority owned to gain an unfair advantage on federal bids for work to call us anytime at 866-714-6466. As we would like to discuss anytime the rewards for this type of information can be extremely significant." http://Wisconsin.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

The Center believes that many companies misrepresent the nature of their ownership structure to gain an unfair advantage when bidding for lucrative federal contracts. As an example, the US Department of Transportation mandates that 10% of federal highway jobs go to a minority or woman owned business. These federal contracts can be worth tens of millions of dollars for even a subcontractor.

The Wisconsin Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Most federal agencies put a premium of giving minority or women owned businesses preferential treatment when it comes to biding on federal contracts. The system designed to assist minority or women owned businesses obtain federal work contracts is very easy to manipulate. As an example, a Caucasian male could appoint his female wife president/CEO of a Wisconsin based food distribution company, and or a construction company that builds highways and only an insider or the employees of the company would know the husband ran the business. The company could be based anywhere in Wisconsin including Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Kenosha, Racine, Appleton, or Oshkosh.

“If you work for a company that is falsely claiming to be a minority or woman owned to business in Wisconsin to get an unfair competitive advantage on federal jobs or federal contract bidding or as an insider you possess this type of proof-please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 and let’s explore the reward possibilities. Why sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it could have been worth." http://Wisconsin.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Wisconsin Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Wisconsin Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company/employer or individual to come clean about significant Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million dollar state or federal tax evasion, or an Wisconsin based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation. For more information a possible whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing in Wisconsin can contact the Whistleblower Center at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their website at http://Wisconsin.CorporateWhistleBlower.Com

Victims of Drugged Drivers Take Issue with Proposed Marijuana-Impaired Driving Levels

Advocacy Groups Propose More Stringent Two-Tiered Approach Popular in Europe

Proper justice for DUID victims is not possible when perpetrators are not found guilty of driving under the influence and thus sentenced to a lesser crime”

— Ed Wood, founder of DUID Victim Voices

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, July 19, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Canadian Government has promised that its C-46 bill to strengthen impaired driving laws will protect Canadians from drug impaired drivers after marijuana’s legalization. But an opposition brief filed today by DUID Victim Voices with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Parliament disagrees. The thoroughly-documented brief says C-46 is fundamentally flawed and threatens to make matters worse for victims of impaired driving. “Proper justice for DUID victims is not possible when perpetrators are not found guilty of driving under the influence and thus sentenced to a lesser crime,” says Ed Wood, founder of DUID Victim Voices.

C-46 seeks to establish per se levels for drugs based upon a belief that the same kind of per se levels that have been successful in dealing with alcohol-impaired driving can also work with drugs. That belief cannot be supported by any scientific studies. In particular, marijuana is so unlike alcohol chemically, biologically and metabolically, that the brief warns it is irrational to use a prescribed per se level for marijuana’s ∆9- tetrahydro-cannabinol (THC).

DUID Victim Voices, an advocacy group for the victims of drug impaired driving, proposes that the bill be rewritten to support a tandem per se approach which is based on scientific research. “Adoption of defined drug per se levels that cannot be scientifically supported not only can also prevent victims of impaired driving from seeing justice, it also threatens public credibility and acceptance of the law,” Wood explains.

Smart Approaches to Marijuana of Canada is also supportive of the brief. "We endorse this rejection of Bill C-46. Survey data shows that young Canadians are not cognizant of the risk of driving impaired by marijuana. The country needs a massive public education program, which could take 15 years like the one for drunk driving awareness." adds Pamela McColl of SAM Canada.

Alcohol per se levels work reasonably well where alcohol is the only impairing substance due to the following facts. Unfortunately, these facts are also unique to alcohol, don’t always apply to other drugs, and don’t apply at all to marijuana’s THC.

1. Alcohol leaves the body linearly and at a slow and predictable rate, but:
On average, the maximum blood THC level is decreased by 73% from its peak level within 25 minutes of beginning to smoke a joint. The median time between a crash and taking a driver’s blood sample is two hours, so laboratory tests tell us nothing about the blood THC level at the time of the crash.

2. Levels of alcohol in blood are similar to levels in the brain, but:
Marijuana’s THC is fat-soluble. It is very rapidly absorbed from the blood by highly perfused fatty tissues like the brain, heart, liver and lungs. Consequently, blood levels of THC tell us nothing about the levels of THC in the brain, which is the only place that really matters when trying to evaluate impairment. THC can even be found in the brain when none can be detected in blood.

3. Blood levels of alcohol correlate very well with measured levels of impairment, but:
Laboratory blood levels of THC do not correlate at all with either brain levels of THC or impairment measurements. A recent American Automobile Association Foundation for Traffic Safety report concluded, “A quantitative threshold for per se laws for THC following cannabis use cannot be scientifically supported.”
Because THC is so quickly redistributed from the blood to the brain and other organs, the majority of stoned drivers arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs test below current proposed per se levels and would therefore escape OWI per se prosecution.

Having most stoned drivers escape prosecution may be an acceptable social policy for non-consequential OWI arrests, but many OWI cases involve death or serious bodily injuries. Permitting the majority of those cases to escape prosecution is a miscarriage of justice that should not be tolerated.

Rather than a defined per se limit, DUID Victim Voices suggests that “tandem per se” be used to prove the crime of OWI per se. Using this approach, a person would be guilty of OWI per se under the following sequence of conditions:

• The driver was arrested by an officer who had probable cause, based on the driver’s demeanor, behavior and observable impairment to believe that the driver was impaired; and
• Proof that the driver had any amount of an impairing substance in his/her blood, oral fluid, or breath.

The tandem per se approach is consistent with the recommendation of the American Automobile Association Foundation for Traffic Safety. It is similar to two-tier systems in place in Germany, France, Belgium and Finland.

DUID Victim Voices represents the interests of the victims of drugged driving, providing fact-based education and a victim perspective to decision makers and to the general public. Visit the website, duidvictimvoices.org.
