Mike Pfau represents victims who have been hit by drunk drivers. He helps them recover the financial compensation they deserve. Below Bobby provides some insight on the legal options available to people who have been hit by drunk drivers in California:

Every state allows people who have been injured by drunk drivers to file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver. In addition to this, several states have ‘dram shop laws,’ which allow alcohol vendors and social hosts to be sued for injuries caused by people to whom they provided alcohol.

California is one of the states that have these third-party liability laws or ‘dram shop laws’. The law states that an alcohol vendor or a social host can be held liable for DUI crash injuries if they provided alcohol to someone under the legal drinking age of 21 years old prior to a crash.
