Deadly Drunk Driving Accident on Interstate 805 in San Diego

A fatal drunk driving accident occurred on January 10th on I-805 in San Diego. The drunk driver, William Cady, survived the accident, but three of his friends who were passengers in his vehicle were pronounced dead on site. According to prosecutors, Cady's friends asked him multiple times to slow down his vehicle, to which Cady responded, "This is my car, and I will drive as fast as I want..." Shortly thereafter, Cady lost control of the vehicle, which flipped over, causing several following vehicles to smash into Cady's flipped vehicle. The drivers of the following vehicles sustained injuries after their cars slammed into Cady's flipped SUV.

The horrendous nature of this drunk driving accident begs the question: what exactly is William Cady liable for? Certainly his actions warrant criminal punishment. However, while most people are aware that killing another person warrants criminal punishment, many people do not know that victims of criminal conduct can also seek monetary damages in civil court against the wrongdoer. The victims and their families are  able to obtain their own counsel to sue Mr. Cady in civil court for any monetary damages Cady's horrendous actions have caused.  In addition, punitive damages may also be sought.  Puntive damages are to punish and make an example of the wrondoer; in this matter Mr. Cady.

The civil liabilities Mr. Cady would face include wrongful death, a loss of consortium, and medical expenses incurred as a result of the accident he caused.
