Information on Drunk Driving Collisions
California law states that it is illegal for drivers to operate a vehicle with a (BAC) Blood Alcohol Concentration, of 0.08% or higher. When drivers are over the maximum BAC level, they are considered drunk and are not only endangering their own lives, but the innocent victims that come into contact with them as well. Victims tend to include, the driver, passengers, bystanders/pedestrians, bicyclists, and other innocent drivers.
These drivers are irresponsible, and essentially reckless. However, other parties may be liable too. Stores or businesses who sold or distributed the alcohol, owners of the vehicle, and also employers can be all be considered liable (example: an employer will be liable through vicarious liability if the driver was in the scope of employment at the time of the crash). Each situation is different and unique; Therefore it is important to speak to an experienced attorney that can help you understand your rights as you pursue a claim. If you or a loved one has been a drunk driving accident victim, call us first and don’t give up until every remedy has been investigated.

Sharing the road with drunk drivers is a dangerous reality, which essentially makes the vehicle a high-powered weapon on a roadway. In 2010, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that a person is injured every two minutes in a drunk driving crash. When such car accidents are caused by the negligence (fault) of another party, victims of these accidents are frequently compensated for their loss, through monetary compensation. This recovery does not occur automatically, as insurance companies are businesses with the primary motivation of maintaining profit. Insurance adjusters will always try to get away with paying as little money as possible.
