Legal Rights of Victims of DUI Car Crashes

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson represents drunk driving crash victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Brian has provided some information on the legal rights of victims and families in the state of California:

"Drunk driving crash victims can directly file a personal injury lawsuit against the drunk driver in all states. Additionally, these victims may have other legal options depending on where the crash occurred. Dram shop laws exist in many states across the country. These laws may allow victims injured by drunk drivers to sue the alcohol vendor who sold the driver alcohol before the crash."

"California is one of the states with these third-party liability dram shop laws. California dram shop laws affirm that an alcohol vendor may be deemed responsible for any injuries or deaths caused by a purchaser if they sell alcohol to a minor under the legal drinking age of 21."
