Can Police Officers Injured By Drunk Drivers File Lawsuits?

Attorney commentator Bobby Thompson offered some thoughts to The Legal Herald on the legal options for police hit by drunk drivers:

When a police officer is wounded or killed on duty, it may be difficult to assess the responsibility. Police work is extremely risky and officers realize that through their job responsibilities they must face a certain level of harm. It is difficult to establish liability in a drunk driving case, especially with those involving police officers. Our legal team in California has experience handling cases involving injured police officers and fighting for the compensation they ultimately deserve,” shared Mr. Thompson.
