It affects your personal injury claim a whole lot. One of the reasons is that because persons who are cited or arrested for drunk driving or driving while intoxicated are presumed to be at fault. Every jury, insurance company, and insurance company's lawyer knows that driving while intoxicated or drunk driving is simply a no no. it's a criminal citation.
