California Lawyers Advocating for Victims of Drunk Driving Injury and Their Families
If you or a loved one is involved in an accident involving a drunk driver, you can expect that the driver will be prosecuted in criminal courts. Aside from helping your sense of justice, how does that benefit your family after an accident? If a drunk driving car accident has resulted in injury or wrongful death, you have a right to pursue compensation from the drunk driver.
While compensation cannot undo the damage the drunk driver caused, it can provide your family with the financial security that is essential after a serious injury or loss of a loved one. A personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit can provide your family with compensation for lost wages/lost income to the family, medical expenses (or funeral expenses), pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, and other damages.
No Liquor Liability Laws in California
While state laws in many other states hold commercial hosts (bars, restaurants, night clubs, etc.) civilly liable if a patron is overserved alcohol and subsequently injures or kills another individual in a drunk driving car accident, California does not impose such liability. In fact, California has specific amendments providing blanket immunity to commercial establishments with the exception of cases where alcohol was sold or furnished to an obviously intoxicated minor.
