Legal Recourse For Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents in California

Bobby Thompson is an attorney who represents victims of drunk driving accidents and helps them recover the financial compensation they need and deserve. Below Bobby provides us with some of his knowledge on the legal options available to these victims:

It is possible in all 50 states for people who have been injured by drunk drivers to file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver. In addition to this, many states have what are known as third-party liability or ‘dram shop laws’. These laws allow alcohol vendors and private social hosts to be sued for injuries caused by people to whom they gave alcohol.

California is included in the list of states with these third-party liability laws. In California, the law says if an alcohol vendor (a bar, restaurant, club), or a social host (a private party host) provides alcohol to someone under the legal drinking age of 21 years old, then they can be held liable for subsequent DUI crash injuries.
