How an Attorney Can Help

Drunk driving accidents often involve complicated legal issues. An experienced attorney can help in several ways:

  • Investigate the Accident: We can thoroughly investigate the accident to gather crucial evidence that proves the other party's negligence.
  • Handle Insurance Companies: We can negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
  • File a Lawsuit: If necessary, we can file a lawsuit and represent you in court.

Injuries Often Suffered in Drunk Driving Accidents

Victims of drunk driving accidents often suffer severe injuries, including:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): High-impact collisions can lead to concussions, contusions, or more severe TBIs, affecting cognitive function and quality of life.

  • Spinal Cord Injuries: The force of a collision can cause spinal cord damage, resulting in paralysis or other debilitating conditions.

  • Broken Bones and Fractures: Victims may suffer fractures and broken bones due to the impact of the accident.

  • Internal Injuries: Blunt force trauma can cause internal injuries to organs, leading to serious health complications.

  • Emotional Distress: The psychological impact of a drunk driving accident can be profound, causing anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

These injuries can lead to significant medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Parties Liable in Drunk Driving Accidents

According to California law, multiple parties could be held liable for your injuries in a drunk driving accident:

  • The drunk driver: They are usually the primary party responsible.
  • Bars and restaurants: Under California's Dram Shop Laws, establishments that serve alcohol to obviously intoxicated patrons can be held liable.
  • Social hosts: Individuals who serve alcohol to minors who then cause an accident can be held liable.
