Legal Recourse For Drunk Driving Accident Victims
Here is our contributor Bobby Thompson, a hit by drunk driver attorney, with some thoughts on the legal rights of drunk driving victims in California:
“The victims of drunk driving accidents are often forced to suffer setbacks that can last for years, and in some cases, a lifetime. These victims and the families of victims who have been killed by drunk drivers deserve justice and financial support. A personal injury lawsuit can help provide financial compensation for damages like medical expenses, lost wages, pain & suffering, and more.
California limits third-party liability in drunk driving cases, so victims will usually be filing a lawsuit directly against the drunk driver. However, the state does have social host laws that allow victims of drunk driving accidents caused by underage drivers to sue the individual or business who gave that underage driver alcohol,” Mr. Thompson concluded.
