When a person gets behind the wheel, they are not only responsible for their own safety, but have a duty to avoid endangering those around them as well. In California, any driver with a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of .08 or more is legally considered to be intoxicated. If an intoxicated driver causes a car accident that results in a serious injury or death, he or she will likely be held liable.
Drinking and driving is negligent and reckless, and it is also illegal. Thus, an individual who causes an accident and injury while under the influence may face even stricter penalties beyond the damages they owe to you. Punitive damages are additional damages that can be pursued if a person caused an injury to another due to blatant and reckless behavior that caused severe injury and correlated with some greater crime, such as DUI. These types of damages are often awarded in order to punish the individual for their actions, as well as provide the injured with additional support.
It is generally fairly easy to prove that a driver's intoxication was the cause of an accident. We can help you compile evidence through field sobriety tests, breathalyzer results, and blood tests to prove that a driver's BAC was at a level that impaired his or her ability to uphold the responsibility to exercise due care. Additionally, under California's Dram Shop Laws, you may be able to pursue damages from the bar or restaurant that served alcohol to a driver under the age of 21 who caused the car accident that led to your injury.
Do not wait to pursue the justice and compensation you deserve!
